Publisher's Summary

Classic Western adventure from America's favorite storyteller, Louis L'Amour.

Louis L'Amour brings you the Wild West as you've never heard it before. This classic story, complete with a full cast, stirring music, and authentic sound effects, sweeps listeners back to the rough and tumble days of the Old West, when men put their lives on the line for the sake of honor, and truth and justice were fought on the open plain.

A dusty stranger comes into the town of Boquilla in search of a drink after many hard weeks riding the trails. He enters the saloon, and within minutes the town bully is dead on the floor. Who is the stranger? Is he John Wesley Hardin? Or the legendary Marshal Kilkenny? Speculation and admiration run through the town like wildfire.

To show their gratitude, the townsfolk persuade the stranger to stay awhile. All the free whiskey he can drink and the finest hotel room in town are only the beginning of the good life for this man, more accustomed to the cold hard ground and meals of greasy bacon and biscuits.

The attractions of the dangerous stranger are also irresistible to the pretty young women in town. But the stranger's luck cannot continue. Someone suspects that he is not who he pretends to be. After all, according to legend, Kilkenny always leaves town after killing the bad guy. Why would he stick around this time?

    "Does No Justice to L'amour"

    A very disappointing performance of a great author.
