Best-selling authors William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone capture the gritty side of the Old West with their Jensen novels. Luke Jensen, Bounty Hunter is the first in an exciting new series starring Smoke's long-lost brother. During the Civil War, Confederate soldier Luke Jensen is ordered to smuggle gold out of the city - but he ends up robbed and shot. Taken in by a Georgia farmer, Luke slowly recovers. Though he plans to rejoin Smoke, a budding romance with the farmer's daughter delays his departure - until a tragic event changes everything.

Fast draw avenger
Luke, because of his protective nature towards those he cares about and his sense of honor to bring the raiders who harmed his family and killed his mom to justice.
The man too tough to die!
I really liked all he characters: the girl and her grandfather who pulled Luke from the torrent waters of the river, rising from the pouring rain, his friend who was unjustly jailed and scheduled to hang, his dad and his sister Janie, his brother Smoke and his wife, Preacher, etc. All expertly portrayed by Jack Garrett.

I am a grown man but I love Westerns.
This is a fine example of the best of Westerns. Expect great Western entertainment. You will not be disappointed.
Great story told in a compelling and spellbinding way.
This book is good enough to stand on it's own and the rest be damned.
His masculinity fit the story and he brought the story to life.
Why would I?? It's a great title.
An unlikely hero that doesn't always save the day, but comes out with his integrity intact. A little more violent than Lamour, but not over the top.
Yes, like the voices associated with the reading but do like to read and listen at same time.
don't have one.
Just a little more drama I guess.
Maybe use multiple readers, especially a woman's voice for a woman's line.
yes but am looking for the next book
this book was like the other smoke jensen books
nice easy performance that left you involved with the story and forgetting the voice
good first book not much happened but you did get a sens
e that the next book could be special
This is the first book of a series of I believe 4 books on Luke Jensen. I was reading Ralph Compton, Ralph Cotton, and W.R. Benton Western books. A friend of mine told me about W.W. and J.A. Johnstone Westerns and how much he enjoyed them, so I purchased this one and was not surprised.
Just about all characters were portrayed by Jack Garrett just fine.
I was totally immerged in the story and hated to stop with out finishing each.
I will continue to read all the Jensen character series books. I am now on book 3. If you enjoy excellent westerns you can not past up this writers collection. Jack Garrett does a fine of narration. It is suitable for the younger generation that would like to understand how it was in the Old West.
