The Broken Gun | [Louis L'Amour]

The Broken Gun

Ninety years ago the Toomey brothers, along with twenty-five other men and four thousand head of cattle, vanished en route to Arizona. When writer and historian Dan Sheridan is invited to the missing brothers’ ranch by its current owner, he jumps at the chance. The visit fits right in with his plan to solve the century-old mystery - but it turns out that his host isn’t a fan of books, writers, or people who don’t mind their own business.

Publisher's Summary

Ninety years ago the Toomey brothers, along with twenty-five other men and four thousand head of cattle, vanished en route to Arizona. When writer and historian Dan Sheridan is invited to the missing brothers’ ranch by its current owner, he jumps at the chance. The visit fits right in with his plan to solve the century-old mystery - but it turns out that his host isn’t a fan of books, writers, or people who don’t mind their own business.

Soon Dan is living the dangers of the Old West firsthand - tracked through the savage wilderness by vicious killers straight out of the most violent pages of his stories. However, his enemies have made one serious mistake: Sheridan is no pencil-pushing greenhorn, and killing him won’t be as easy as they think.

Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, L’Amour has thrilled a nation by chronicling the adventures of the brave men and women who settled the American frontier. There are more than 300 million copies of his books in print around the world.

    "Very Good Book"

    I've always like Louie L'Amour. This book was quite different from the others. Too darn short but very different from many of his other books. Takes place in present day. I really liked it and usually will not buy a book this short but glad that I did. I will most likely listen to this one again and the narrator was very decent also. No complaints there. I would recommend it even though too short.

    I have had audible now for about 8 months and have enjoyed expanding my reading into books I would have not read before!

    "A story with a different time frame"
    What did you love best about The Broken Gun?

    It begins in a totally different time frame than most of L'Amour's books which I wasn't sure I would enjoy as much. But as I listened to the story develop it brought in the things I love about his writing. The history and details that go back into history of how the west was settled, and how it related to the area that he was writing about now. The story was not predictable of which I appreciated as well. It begans in a more modern day time set and then as the lead person investigates the story he finds himself in situations not unlike being in the old west working with other characters that also fit the western subject matter. A very good read or listen!


    What does Jason Culp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jason Culp is one of the best vocalists I have heard read from various books.
