Publisher's Summary

In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his memory. All he knew for certain was that someone wanted him dead - and that he had better learn why. But everywhere he turned there seemed to be more questions - or people too willing to hide the truth behind a smoke screen of lies. He had only the name he had been told was his own, his mysterious skill with a gun, and a link to a half million dollars’ worth of buried gold as evidence of his past life. Was the treasure his? Was he a thief? A killer? He didn’t have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn’t know about himself, others did - and if he didn’t unlock the secret of his past, he wasn’t going to have much of a future.

Another Great Louis L'Amour Story


As a Louis L'Amour fan, I've seen the movie, read the book, and have now enjoyed "The Man Called Noon" in audiobook form. The audiobook being my preference.

Steven Mendel gave a great performance.

If you've never read Louis L'Amour, this would be a great first. If you're a fan, it's a must!

A favorite

I’ve read this book in several formats and I always enjoy it. It is definitely one of my favorite of Louis L’Amour’s books. A most highly recommended book.

Going to listen to Noon again with my Atlas.

Not only does Louis L'Amour deliver a book so complete on all counts, his practice of following every foot thru all the country depicted in his books revives that inherent "exploration" yen we all have. All of his creations are so full of life and authenticity, I want to roll up the Atlas and start the 4x4 SUV and follow the Man Called Noon's journey with 21st century tech. But first, I enjoy a western tale so full of action, skullduggery, bad 'uns, gun savvy heros, and surprising plots and endings, that my credit is well spent! If you don't care for Westerns, your education will be lacking.

Well paced yarn

What did you like most about The Man Called Noon?

Have read some Louis L'Amour books many years ago but not this one. I liked the mystery and almost detective like nature of the story. Only iritant was the same questions within the central characters mind repeated perhaps too often in the narrative. Otherwise an enjoyable story with some vivid detail of the characters, countryside and area.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Mendel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Well read, some narrators grate but I enjoyed this narrator's style and voice.

Any additional comments?

Would try another Louis L'Amor audio book from the same narrator.
