    "Could have been shorter, but still a good story"

    This would have rated "riveting", if it was maybe two downloads instead of three. Good characters; interesting to have "real" ones, such as Bowie and Santa Anna. Bogged down at times; some scenes were just longer than they needed to be. Still a good enough story to stick with it, and George Guidall's narration was great, as usual.
