Zane Grey’s books shoot fast and straight from the hip, hitting readers dead center with thrilling action. His name has become synonymous with western adventure. Because of his killing speed with a revolver, Buck Duane has lived the lone-wolf life of an outlaw. Every day is a struggle against desperate men anxious to prove themselves—and a bigger struggle to hold onto his basic human decency. So when the Texas Rangers offer to deputize him for a dangerous undercover mission, Buck grabs it as his final chance for redemption. The trouble is, the odds are good that the mission will kill him. In books like The Lone Star Ranger and To The Last Man, Zane Grey takes readers to a time and place where men lived by the speed of their draw and the strength of their convictions. Narrator Ed Sala gives compelling voice to the lonely longing of a Texas outlaw.

I have always been told that Zane Grey wrote the best westerns of this or anytime. I have read 3/4 of his books and listened to this one and am underwhelmed by the contrived and predicatble plots and story line. I have no problem with the telling of the story on this Audible book. In all honesty all westerns in this genre are predicatble- comboy rides into a hostile environment, always involving an attractive young woman, bad guys cause trouble for all the 'ggod guys' and the hero saves tha day, often single handedly.. I have read more than 20 of Louis La'More's books and most of them fall under the contrived and predictable comment.
The story detail was not great, but okay.
The telling of the story was good.
Comparing a book to the same presentation in a movie is tough! A well written script and acceptable 'stars' can elevate a mediocre book to a good movie and sometimes to a great movie.
