Publisher's Summary

Macon Fallon had never needed more than a deck of cards, a fast horse, and a ready gun; he was counting on those things now as he led an unsuspecting group of settlers to an abandoned mining town. But while Fallon prepared to pass the ghost town off as a gold mine in the making, a funny thing happened: a real-life community started to take shape in the town he’d christened Red Horse. 

So when a band of vicious outlaws and a kid who fancied himself a gunslinger threatened to rip Red Horse apart, Fallon found himself caught in one predicament he’d never gambled on. He had come to Red Horse to make a quick fortune, but now he might have to pick up a gun and risk his life for a place he never wanted to call home.…

Certainly no cookie-cutter western

This is some inspired storytelling from beginning to end and, frankly, I didn’t want it to end. Given the entertaining trajectory of the main character, Macon Fallon, one more chapter would have been a real treat. Is Fallon a bad man masquerading as a good man or a good man masquerading as a bad one? The community that grows up around him will have a little something to say about that. Jason Culp narrated the story superbly, adopting an absolutely perfect tone to bring about just the right amount of humor and complexity for Fallon. I found myself grinning rather broadly at the end.

A little different, but still classic L’Amour.

It has all the earmarks of a L’Amour with a lengthy fistfight, western history, and a variety of tough personalities. This one has a delightful twist to the ending and Jason Culp presents it superbly.

enjoyable exciting somewhat predictable

Listened while on a. trip. the story had gold, riches, swindling, shooting, growing pains, and of course love. Some violence in the shooting but typical of L.L. and westerns. Enjoyed the authors choice of words and the narrator's voice. It kept the whole family interested.
