Hallettsville, Texas was overrun by Yankees and Northern corruption after the Civil War, and ex-Confederate officer Slate Creed lost everything when Yankees stole his home, named him an outlaw and condemned him to die as well... On the run since his home-coming after the Civil War, Slate Creed sees a chance to clear his name. To do so, he must find Quade, the man who helped frame him. The hard part will be getting him back to Texas to tell the tale...especially when a trumped-up charge of murder threatens to put both their necks in the noose.
The book was just fair but the reading by Maynard Villers was horrible. It sounded like Villers was late for dinner and was in a big hurry to finish the read so he could get paid and hurry home for a hot meal. When I first got the down load I checked to see if somehow the record speed was incorrect but no, Mr Villers simply reads to fast. The read showed no emotional commitment to the story. Just read it as fast as possible and get on with the next project. It sounded like he was reading it to himself. Boring.
