    Story
    "Interesting"

    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.

    Story
    "Historic Outlaw You May Not Have Heard Of"
    Would you listen to The Debonair Bandit again? Why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marion Hedgepeth, the Debonair Bandit and his motivation for choosing to live the life he did.


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

    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.


    If you could rename The Debonair Bandit, what would you call it?

    I fought the Law and had an interesting time... ? lol


    Any additional comments?

    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".

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost.
