The towering Last Gunfighter series continues with Slaughter. In the lawless West, Frank Morgan is the type of man you want on your side in a fight.

probably not

Any additional comments?

i was disappointed to see that george guidall was not the reader. jack garret's voice, in the beginning, sounded like it might work, but the reading was slow and lacked pazazz. action just wasn't conveyed.

William Johnstone has over a million copies of his popular Westerns in print. Rolling into the small town of San Remo, Frank Morgan and his faithful companion Dog bear witness to a violent range war. Frank gets drawn in deeper when he’s recruited by one side against the other. Weary from a life of settling scores with pistols, Morgan sides with the townsfolk and reluctantly accepts their marshal’s badge in the hopes of ending the bloodshed.

The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

i thanked my son for turning me on to Haruki Murakami with 'wind up' and 'kafka' and i was looking forward to '1q84' and my hour drive to and from work. WOW, what a disappointment. 1st time i arrived at work more brain dead than when i left. i queried what literary device is when characters constantly repeat each other, without the incremental advancing of the story. the only thing apparent is the targeted audience has add or adhd, 'in other words' has trouble following a weak story line. ho-ho!
any suspense was wondering when the suspense will begin. ho-ho!
