One of the best-selling Western writers of all time, William W. Johnstone established three of the genre’s most enduring characters in Matt and Smoke Jensen and their stalwart friend Preacher. In Helltown Massacre, the family Jensen lands squarely in the crosshairs of a railroad tycoon trying to run the iron horse through Paiute territory. To protect the land, three honest men will face half a hundred hired guns—impossible odds, unless you’re a Jensen.
This is everything an enthusiastic western reader could want. The description of the fighting, shooting, and knifing conflicts leap right off the pages into your consciousness creating a flourish of images producing an action movie in your mind.
The continuing story of Smokes family. Always a pleasant time reading and catching up on the family history.
Has plenty of action it's another good book. Wish his books were a little longer for the price but his characters are great.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Make the advertized book the one that was downloaded, not the same story with a different title which I had already downloaded.
Has The Family Jensen turned you off from other books in this genre?
Only the sense that I'm being deceived in the purchase of audiobooks.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jack Garrett?
I don't think this problem is the narrator's fault.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
This is not a problem with the book or the author. It is a problem with marketing or data base cross-over.
