Publisher's Summary

The marshal's name was Borden Chantry. Young, lean, rugged, he's buried a few men in this two-bit cow town - every single one killed in a fair fight. Then, one dark, grim day a mysterious gunman shot a man in cold blood. Five grisly murders later, Chantey was faced with the roughest assignment of his life - find that savage, trigger-happy hard case before he blasts apart every man in town...one by bloody one.

'Borden Chantry' vs. 'Iron Marshal'

"Iron Marshal" engaged me, whereas "Borden Chantry" felt phoned in and formulaic. Among LL's westerns, I place the "Iron Marshal" audiobook in top 25%, and "Borden Chantry" in bottom third.

First "Iron Marshal": Do not be off-put by the derby hat on the cover, nor by the strong Irish accent of the protagonist - "Iron Marshal" is a classic Western. It has its share of good action sequences, but it also contains a clear cast of characters, an elegant whodunnit, and a character's ostracism reminiscent of the movie "High Noon." We find ourselves really liking our guy. I have read practically every L'Amour, and "Iron Marshal" will go down as a favorite.

"Borden Chantry" seems to be primarily a whodunnit. But the mystery in "Marshal" is better drawn, and so are the other facets. And Marshal's narrator is better than Chantry's.

Great Western!

I thought I'd read/listened to all of Louis L'Amour's books, but I'm happy to see there are some I haven't. I enjoyed the tie-in with the Sackett family, too.

I think this is the first book narrated by Erik Singer that I've heard, and I felt he did a great job! All the voices he used for the characters were enjoyable and well-modulated. I would be quite happy to listen to him on another book!
