Marion Hedgepeth was born in Prairie Home, Missouri on April 14, 1856. He ran away from home at age 15, worked as a cowboy, and was an outlaw by the time he was 20, having killed in Colorado and Wyoming, as well as having robbed trains.
This story is based on his life penned by a direct descendant of the Debonair Bandit.

This is an advanced reader copy of the book provided by audiobook boom. The entire story was based on the life of a real person. The narrator was very good and added to the story. I hated that the family was torn apart because people chose different sides in the Civil War but I also do not like parents who abuse their children because of their own failings. The story was well written and gave some insights into why he was an outlaw.
More events proving that he was actually a bandit rather than some sissy cowboy that was a good shot.
Yes, perhaps with a more suitable book. Non-fiction maybe
I was provided this book by the author or narrator for review. The intonation used by the narrator did not suit a fictional "western" type book. The story itself goes way too fast (skips years) and then way too slow with boredom ensuing. Not good for fans of fictional westerns.
I love listening to Psychological Thrillers , and Suspenseful or Action Novels..
This book was a good fast paced thriller that kept you wanting more. I enjoyed each of the characters and found it to be worth listening to.From the very first page until the final one...exciting! My first time reading B.W. Hedgepeth's writting but will not be the last. Looking forward to following exciting adventures...l love his character...in fact all the people involved are interesting. Just read and enjoy.

Yes, Marion Hedgepeth came to be one of the West's most ruthless bank robbers and killer. And yet he isn't well known today. Chased by the Pinkerton Agency. Paroled from prison where he had spent over half his life. Gave information on the infamous serial killer H.H. Holmes. His life is given a good send up by his descendant and author of the novel, B.W. Hedgepeth. And done in a visual manner of his life and the era. It's a Western, done well.
Marion Hedgepeth, the Debonair Bandit and his motivation for choosing to live the life he did.
Jim Sartor has the voice of the Old West suited to this story. I have listened to an audio book he did on John Wesley Hardin and was impressed with it too.
I fought the Law and had an interesting time... ? lol
This may have presented Marion in a better light than he actually deserved. It IS a novel written by his relative. An interesting time and individual as the focus of the story though. In the same vein of the fictionalized versions for Butch Cassidy and Sundance.
Thanks for the opportunity to review "The Debonair Bandit".
