I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is my first experience with the author, Douglas Hirt and the narrator Rusty Nelson. The theme of the book is a common one for a western; of course, I am always curious to see what the author will do with the old storyline.
Thomas Langley is a retired gunfighter. He moves to the New Mexico Territory and disguises himself as a tenderfoot shopkeeper. He discovers a plot to steal a widow’s ranch so he has to help her. The author provides lots of description so I felt as if I could visualize everything with ease.
The book is short and well written. The plot twists and turns with some humor tossed in. The pace is fast. Rusty Nelson does a good job narrating the book. Nelson has a good voice for the western genre.
