The Rider of Lost Creek

Lance Kilkenny's gun is believed to be the fastest in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Most folks don't even know what he looks like. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny's life after he was shot up. Now Davis needs Kilkenny's help. He has filed a claim on a water hole near Lost Creek in the live oak country.

Publisher's Summary

Lance Kilkenny's gun is believed to be the fastest in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Most folks don't even know what he looks like. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny's life after he was shot up. Now Davis needs Kilkenny's help. He has filed a claim on a water hole near Lost Creek in the live oak country. The district is dominated by two wealthy cattlemen, Webb Steele and Chet Lord, each one desiring for himself the water hole that Davis claims. Beautiful Nita Riordan owns the local saloon, and between her charms and the feuding ranchers, Lance Kilkenny has his work cut out for him.

What the Critics Say

"L'Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heat wave boiling up from a sun-baked paragraph. A master storyteller." (Kirkus Reviews)

    Story
    "I was very very upset with this book."

    It was to be a unabridged version of the book. I could not believe what I was hearing. Loius L'Amour in my a opinion is one of the greatest writers there is. Jim Gough also did a good job of reading the story. But Audible needs to change this for a UNABRIDGED version to a ABRIDGED version.

    "Average L'Amour, bad Narrator"

    3-4 star story, but the narration brought it to two. The story was your typical L’Amour, maybe too typical. I thought it wasn’t one of his better. I felt like sometimes he was trying too hard to establish something. In my head I was saying, “Okay, I get it already!”
    The narrator was just poor. Good voice, but the pronunciation of sentences was awful. He totally emphases the wrong words! Very annoying and sometimes bad enough to where you can’t understand what’s going on.
    Okay overall. Worth it if you have a few credits lying around, but there are better narrators and better Louis L’Amour stories out there.

    "5 star story..."

    Lousy narrator. Jim Gough tries to act, but doesn't have a clue about how people actually talk. He emphasizes words that shouldn't be in sentences that should not be emphasized in any way - or wouldn't be in normal conversation or narration.

    When I see Jim Gough as narrator, I pass the book by. He ain't David Strathairn or Jason Culp.
