Shooter | [Dusty Rhodes]

Shooter

Johnny Shooter was sentenced to hang at noon. But Judge Isaac Parker, widely known as the "Hanging Judge", made Johnny an offer he couldn't refuse. The judge made him a Deputy United State Marshal, then sent his new deputy after the worst-of-the-worst outlaws the Indian territory had to offer, with the orders not to burden the court by bringing them back for trial. Now, rumor has it that whenever outlaws gather around a campfire, the word is: "The only thing worse than standing before the Hanging Judge is hearing that Johnny Shooter is on your trail!"

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

    Story
    "Enjoyable Listen"

    "....steaming hot cup of coffee.....folded his tired body into a chair....". I really enjoyed the narrator's voice and intonations. I feel like the narrator authentically knew the language of 1870's American West. Story was good with a satisfying ending. My favorite by this author and narrator is "Manhunter". I recommend "Shooter" but I highly recommend "Manhunter"

    "Good western and great reader"
    If you could sum up Shooter in three words, what would they be?

    It is a nice historical fiction western. Everything you need, guns, outlaws, adventure, horses, and a woman.


    What does Gene Engene bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I've have been a fan of Gene Engene since the 1980's. He has the ability to make a bad book great.

    Story
    "A good story"

    I have enjoyed Dusty Rhodes books because he has no foul languages and overt sex scenes, he just tells a good story. The story in this book is a common theme for westerns. Johnny Shooter's family is killed by outlaws, he goes after them and kills them. He then is arrested found guilty and sentence to hang. In steps Judge Isaac Parker and releases him and makes him a U.S. Deputy Marshall and sends him out to catch or kill the bad guys. If he last 6 month the Judge will pardon him. Seems simple but Rhodes weaves and action packed story with some humor and love interest. Makes an easy listening story to make a change of pace from heavier reading or a busy life. Gene Engene voice is perfect for the narration of a western.

    Story
    "Great western book."
    If you could sum up Shooter in three words, what would they be?

    Great, Action, and exciting.


    What other book might you compare Shooter to and why?

    Riders of the purple sage.
    Follows same characters all through the book,
    and keeps you rooting for them.


    If you could take any character from Shooter out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Judge Parker. To find out if it bothered him to hang all those men.


    Any additional comments?

    Gene engene is a great reader, and everyone should read all of Dusty Rhodes books.
    You will have hours of wonderful enjoyment.

    Story
    "More "Latte" than "Cowboy" Coffee."

    Characters rather 2-D, sterreotyped western. I couldn't find Clint Eastwood (Hang 'em High) anywhere in this book. As an 'Oater' it was 'good enough' and the Narrater was OK, too. I'll try some more Rhodes books, but not this winter. It seems more like a warm weather book to me.
