Publisher's Summary

When Ruben Beeler joins Marshal Marion Daniels to investigate an incident of theft and murder, Rube is plunged into a world of dark deeds and black hearts. With the help of an abused and courageous young woman, Rube, Marion, and Marshal Addriss Tippideaux head south of the Missouri line into the hills and hollows of Northern Arkansas, and take on an entire clan to see that justice is done. Suspicion of outsiders and hate for the government abounds, and the marshals are much farther from home than the miles they've traveled. Revenge is the order of the day and life is cheap on The Payback Trail.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "David R. Lewis is now one of my favorites!"

    David Lewis is a gifted author who is equally gifted as a narrator. This is a thoroughly enjoyable "Western" with seamless masterful narration of many different voices. You have no idea that one person is narrating all the different characters. Action, comedy, exciting plot, theme: crystal clear of good over evil, all topped off with a "happy ending". I loved all 5 audiobooks in this series and am sad there is no more. I loved the stories, characters, plots and did not want them to end. Please write more Mr. Lewis!!!

    "Satisfying Set of Mythological Stories"

    I have not encountered anything quite like these reads. Almost all my listening is non fiction and many of those are epics such as the Durant series on civilization, Sheerers Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Toland, Keegan and many others. My collection includes a couple dozen of The Great Courses but there are some fiction pieces including most of Kings Dark Tower books and some others.

    These relatively short Westerns stand apart from anything else. They are almost like post modern scripts from a weekly 1930's radio series. The singing cowboys are replaced with an altogether different sort of idealized American Folk Hero. But I like this new mythical world of days gone by. And I recommend it to non-Americans to take a bit seriously. The Illiad and The Odessey they are not but its the same sort of cutural relationship imho.

    "Fun Book"
    If you could sum up Payback Trail in three words, what would they be?

    Fun to read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Payback Trail?

    The entire book was memorable.


    Have you listened to any of David R. Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Payback Trail was my first experience with this author. I searched for more titles as soon as I had completed this book. Having found several more books written by Mr. Lewis I look forward to many more hours of listening pleasure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    Story
    "Lawman lives up to the glorious westerns of old."

    One of the better written westerns. Has all the aspects of a great western and an unusual story. Not cowboys and Indians at all but more like I want to think the west really was. It's hard to find a good western now days and this one is worth reading. The narrator was great too. Added to the story with his deep voice and accent.

    Story
    "Best Western Author Writing Today!"
    Where does Payback Trail rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    i have enjoyed the Trail series by David Lewis more than any audiobooks I have ever listened to and I have listened to many hundreds over the past 25 years. This is an exceptional author and a great narrator.


    What does David R. Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lewis has a unique vocal quality that is both pleasant and interesting. The dialect is s a great enhancement to the story and an entertainment in itself--uniquely strong it is a genuine throw back to another time. I know of no one who has a more pleasantly unique style.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like westerns you should not miss this author--he is the best there is out there writing today. Just look at all of his reviews and ratings. Everyone who tries these books comes back for more. All the friends I have referred have become committed fans of Lewis.

    "Absolutely Terrific !"
    If you could sum up Payback Trail in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, entertaining, terrific


    What does David R. Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is just the best reader I have heard in a very long time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh out loud! The author not only writes great stories, he reads them equally terrific!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope he continues with the series. Can't wait to see what Ruben, Marion and the rest of the gang get themselves into!
