    "Good read."

    I am a big Pronzini fan. I've read all of the "nameless detective" books and several of his stand-alone novels as well of a few short story compilations.Gallows Land was a treat, since I haven't read many of Pronzini's westerns. Good characters, good story, good imagery and dialog. Maybe just a little predictable, but most books usually are. I'd have rather given this book a 4.5, but since I was forced to choose, I went to the 5. I don't usually LISTEN to many Pronzini's books because so many of them are read by Nick Sullivan who ruins Pronzini (or anything else he reads) for me. But... "The Gallows Land" was read by Richard Ferrone who made it a delight. I think Ferrone is one of the best narrators of audio books in the business - especially when he does crime fiction (check out his reading of John Sandford's "Prey" series). He's a great match for Pronzini, so I hope he reads the upcoming "Hellbox", the next in the "nameless detective" series. If Sullivan reads it, I'll stick to the paper version.
