Publisher's Summary

When Ruben Beeler joins Marshal Marion Daniels to investigate an incident of theft and murder, Rube is plunged into a world of dark deeds and black hearts. With the help of an abused and courageous young woman, Rube, Marion, and Marshal Addriss Tippideaux head south of the Missouri line into the hills and hollows of Northern Arkansas, and take on an entire clan to see that justice is done. Suspicion of outsiders and hate for the government abounds, and the marshals are much farther from home than the miles they've traveled. Revenge is the order of the day and life is cheap on The Payback Trail.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "David R. Lewis is now one of my favorites!"

    David Lewis is a gifted author who is equally gifted as a narrator. This is a thoroughly enjoyable "Western" with seamless masterful narration of many different voices. You have no idea that one person is narrating all the different characters. Action, comedy, exciting plot, theme: crystal clear of good over evil, all topped off with a "happy ending". I loved all 5 audiobooks in this series and am sad there is no more. I loved the stories, characters, plots and did not want them to end. Please write more Mr. Lewis!!!

    "The Best Westerns!"

    These Trail Series westerns are the best I've read/listened to in the last decade! They will run your emotional gamut from funny to gut wrenching.

    One of the most enjoyable westerns in a long time. I like the characters and feel as if I know them. The author reads the stories and brings them to life for me.

    The kllling of Tip. I wish he would become a regular.


    What does David R. Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice of Rubin and Marrion make the story for me

    "Characters with the kick of a six Gage!"
    What did you love best about Payback Trail?

    The trail takes Rube and Marion to a land of hillbilly's and dark deeds in strange land. Rube meets a different side of womanhood from a young abused women to an old bag who henpecks the pride out of her man. Colorful characters like targets at the country fair pop up catching your attention. This s a really fun book that manages to entertain while getting you involved with the folks along the trail. This is surly the most humorist book of the trail series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Payback Trail?

    meeting the young girl in jail.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    meeting the young girl and the hog man. Also the loud mouth old lady.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent story teller and really like the music in-between the chapters

    Story
    "Satisfying Set of Mythological Stories"

    I have not encountered anything quite like these reads. Almost all my listening is non fiction and many of those are epics such as the Durant series on civilization, Sheerers Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Toland, Keegan and many others. My collection includes a couple dozen of The Great Courses but there are some fiction pieces including most of Kings Dark Tower books and some others.

    These relatively short Westerns stand apart from anything else. They are almost like post modern scripts from a weekly 1930's radio series. The singing cowboys are replaced with an altogether different sort of idealized American Folk Hero. But I like this new mythical world of days gone by. And I recommend it to non-Americans to take a bit seriously. The Illiad and The Odessey they are not but its the same sort of cutural relationship imho.

    "Fun Book"
    If you could sum up Payback Trail in three words, what would they be?

    Fun to read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Payback Trail?

    The entire book was memorable.


    Have you listened to any of David R. Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Payback Trail was my first experience with this author. I searched for more titles as soon as I had completed this book. Having found several more books written by Mr. Lewis I look forward to many more hours of listening pleasure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No
