I have not read a great deal of Louis L'Amour, but from what I understand, this book has his typical resolution, but not his typical subject (Russians and Indians instead of cowboys and Indians). The book will not cause you to rethink your worldview by any means, but it is enjoyable light entertainment.
Strathairn has the ability to vary his vocals so you usually know which character is speaking even before the narration informs you. He has been in a number of movies (notably, "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "The Bourne Ultimatum", so when you first hear his voice, it may cause you to scratch your head and wonder where you've heard that voice before.
L'Amour's writing style is easy to listen to, and Strathairn does an excellent job of narration, so all in all, it is an excellent package.
