One of the major voices in science fiction, Mike Resnick presents the first volume in a bold new trilogy.
Jefferson Nighthawk--known and feared by many as the Widowmaker, the consummate bounty hunter--has been frozen for a century in order to defeat a deadly disease. Only now the cost of his care has risen, so the Widowmaker is called out of retirement for one special commission, and a very large chunk of cash. A notorious assassin has been wrecking havoc on the Frontier; who better but the Widowmaker to defeat him?

Been a fan of Mike Resnick for a long time. Always happy to revisit the frontier and go along for the ride. This book was OK but nothing stellar. I will continue to buy, read and listen to his work, I just think he has more in him to give.
BTW whoever read this book did a great job. Thank you.
I really like the fact that the author deals with some of the issues involved in cloning a human being! Also, the story is well narrated. The one thing that disappointed me was the fact that there's too much similarity between this story and his Santiago stories.
Widowmaker is made for audio consumption: nothing competes with the skill of a good narrator
There is something of King's Gunslinger series to this work: it smacks of spaghetti Western which in no way diminishes its delivery
Stephan is arguably the greatest narrator of our generation besides George Guidall
Definitely: this book builds its narrative in a very engaging manner
I wish Resnick was as prolific as Larry Niven
