Publisher's Summary

Ever try to fill boots a size too large?

Ever keep pace with strides too long?

Ever try to cast a long shadow?

“Bad Bobby” Trent, star high school athlete, college scholarship holder, pro-rodeo circuit rider, lived an unencumbered life. He was a man, who, by his own definition, limited his concentration to no more than eight seconds at a time - the time required to ride a bull or saddlebronc and win. He’s tough, independent, shallow, and always looking for a good time. Then his father is murdered.

Sheriff Robert Trent, was the longtime chief law enforcement officer of Lodge Pole County Montana. He was stern, fair, honest, and dependable. He tried to see the best in people, and always ready to give them one more chance. He was ambushed, shot dead at the side of the road. Set up by someone he knew. Now, rumors claim the sheriff wasn’t all that he claimed. Rumors claim he was dirty; paid off by persons’ unknown.

Slapped by reality, Bobby is determined to investigate the killing. He’s set on finding the one who did this. Only one problem, he doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing.

Bad Boys

Cast A Long Shadow
: Kwen D Griffeth

I was surprised how quickly I was drawn into this novel. The characters were well defined and had interesting personalities. There was plenty of adventure, some very bad men, and plenty of historic native culture. Ï look forward to more of these books.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Paul J McSorley.

Couldn't put it down!

I started this book and I was hooked from the get go. I loved Bobby's personality, his bad boy attitude and the eventual understanding of who he was raised to be. Unfortunately, it took his dad being murdered for that to come to him. Made me sad when he felt that he disappointed his dad and couldn't make amends for it. The developing relationships within the characters was enjoyable to read.
I actually listened to the audio book version and enjoyed it very much with Paul McSorley at the helm. Paul McSorley is a master at storytelling and he makes this listener believe every word.
I highly enjoyed this book.

Intriguing mix of mystery and spirituality........

Cast A Long Shadow introduces Bobby Trent, a professional rodeo rider from Montana. Bobby has an irreverent attitude towards everything in his life, and his only commitment is to the 8 seconds he must stay on a bucking bronco. When not traveling on the rodeo circuit, he returns to his small hometown of Wapiti, Montana, where his father is the sheriff. Tired of what he sees as his son's unwillingness to grow up, the sheriff locks Bobby in the local jail for ten days, so he can think about his future. During this time, everything falls apart for his father, and he ends up not only ambushed and killed, but his reputation is being tarnished by rumors of collusion with drug runners. Bobby must grow up overnight as he vows to not only prove his father's good character but also to avenge his death. Thus begins an exciting and somewhat violent journey for Bobby. Along the way, he is joined by some amazing secondary characters, including his former fiance turned defense attorney, a kickass female deputy, and the chief of the local Native American police department. Griffeth skillfully weaves glimpses of the Montanan and Native American culture throughout this adventurous tale, and, as a Montana resident, I can attest that he does an accurate and intriguing job of this. I look forward to more books in this series available on Audible soon.

Paul J McSorley's narration is fantastic. He has a deep, sonorous voice, and his performance is flawless. He differentiates well between characters, and the story flowed so smoothly that I listened to the entirety of the book in one sitting.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

The Budding Genius of Kwen Griffith

Kwen Griffith captures my attention and artfully guides me throgh his stories. Over five years I have read and listened to Mr. Griffith's stories, usually narrated by Paul McSorley. Few writers have honed their story telling to such a degree. I am waiting for the transfer of these works into screen plays or scripts for a broadcast series so that more people can enjoy the gift of his writing. Heroes with real flaws and strong villains provide conflict and grip my attention leaving me hungry for more. Impatiently waiting for the Audible version of Book 2.

Awesome Mystery! Awesome Narration!

Cast a Long Shadow by Kwen D Griffeth pulled me in immediately. The imagery in this book is outstanding. With the narration by Paul J McSorley I could envision so much. His voice is perfect for this book. He gives the various characters their own distinguishable voice, so I can hear exactly who is speaking. I loved the twists in this book too! I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. This western thriller is the start of a new series and a standalone listen.
