Publisher's Summary

Val Darrant was just four years old the snowy night his mother abandoned him. But instead of meeting a lonely death, he met Will Reilly - a gentleman, a gambler, and a worldly, self-taught scholar. For 10 years they each were all the family the other had, traveling from dusty American boomtowns to the cities of Europe - until the day Reilly’s luck ran out in a roar of gunfire.

But it wasn’t a gambling brawl or a pack of thieves that sealed Will’s fate. It was a far more complex story that Val would soon uncover, one that touched upon Val’s nearly forgotten childhood, the woman who was Will Reilly’s lost love, and the violent future of a growing country.

    "Another Great Read By Louis L'Amour"

    This is a touching story about a man alone who raises a boy nobody wants, and taught him to be a man. An honest gambler, he and the boy travel in many countries, but it's the west they love.

    The narrator gave a good performance.

    A must read for L'Amour fans, or great as a first read for those unfamiliar with his stories.

    Story
    "LaMour at his best"
    Would you listen to Reilly's Luck again? Why?

    Yes, this book has surprizes in each turn and you see it clearer there you hear it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Reilly's life becomes devoted to teaching the boy and nothing gets in the way of that devotion.


    What does Beau Bridges bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A rough and brisc voice of believability.

    "Glad this book is finally here!"

    I grew up reading books of Louis L'Amour. I have read this book 20 plus times. So when I saw it was available on audible, I jumped on it. Then to have Bridges narrate it, it was perfect. I just hope they keep making more of his books available, next I am waiting on is Flint!

    "Can't beat Louis L'amour"

    Thourghly enjoyed this tale. The scope of this adventure takes you from the wilds of the American west to the Alps on the Swiss border. So come and ride along with Valentine Durant on this riviting tale.

    "Louis L'amour at his best"

    Outstanding story and a decent performance. Bridges does a good job but doesn't have the voice for all of the characters.

    Story
    "A story can be no better than the teller."

    Found it difficult to follow with the poor narration. Almost as bad as Jim Gough, who is my least favorite.
