Publisher's Summary

The 1870s: As opposed to the myths of popular culture, not everybody was swaggering around with six-irons strapped down and leading lives of mayhem. But there were the exceptions - every bit as evil, bloody, and deadly as legends portray. And so too was the law that handled these outlaws. In the mold of men like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp, MD Shorty Thompson is just that kind of lawman: Short on stature but tall on guts. Hand-picked by President Rutherford B. Hayes, he is one of best. And since United States Marshals of the 1870s handle desperados, this means just about everybody does seem to be using those strapped-down dragoons and wreaking havoc. For Marshal MD Thompson, it's the life of a lawman.

    "Good solid Western"

    Book 7 of Paul L. Thompson's western saga was engaging, and at times put me in the saddle with a six shooter in my hand and lead a-flying. But a good editor would have made all the difference. While Kevin Iggens's narration was passable there were issues with pronunciations, syntax and pacing that a good editor would have picked up. Each time the spell was broken, the realization that it is just an audio book was evident. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Love a good western"

    I got this via audiobook boom. This was a good western. Shorty Thompson and his Deputy Buffalo did some strange things and worked some magic as they chased an outlaw gang who was stealing and selling women and girls. In the end the two girls that were actually sold to the Chinese merchants were the two women who were leading the gang. They only told one person who they were and therefore were sold just like any other of the girls. Shorty got there in time to save the others. A little Native American magic was thrown into the mix and it enhanced the story. The narrator was perfect for the book.
