In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his memory. All he knew for certain was that someone wanted him dead - and that he had better learn why. But everywhere he turned there seemed to be more questions - or people too willing to hide the truth behind a smoke screen of lies. He had only the name he had been told was his own, his mysterious skill with a gun, and a link to a half million dollars’ worth of buried gold as evidence of his past life. Was the treasure his? Was he a thief? A killer? He didn’t have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn’t know about himself, others did - and if he didn’t unlock the secret of his past, he wasn’t going to have much of a future.

As a Louis L'Amour fan, I've seen the movie, read the book, and have now enjoyed "The Man Called Noon" in audiobook form. The audiobook being my preference.
Steven Mendel gave a great performance.
If you've never read Louis L'Amour, this would be a great first. If you're a fan, it's a must!
"Well paced yarn"
Have read some Louis L'Amour books many years ago but not this one. I liked the mystery and almost detective like nature of the story. Only iritant was the same questions within the central characters mind repeated perhaps too often in the narrative. Otherwise an enjoyable story with some vivid detail of the characters, countryside and area.
Well read, some narrators grate but I enjoyed this narrator's style and voice.
Would try another Louis L'Amor audio book from the same narrator.
