Publisher's Summary

They laughed at Roberto Valdez and then ignored him. But when a dark-skinned man was holed up in a shack with a gun, they sent the part-time town constable to deal with the problem, and made sure he had no choice but to gun the fugitive down. Trouble was, Valdez killed an innocent man. And when he asked for justice, and some money for the dead man's woman, they beat Valdez and tied him to a cross. They were still laughing when Valdez came back. And then they began to die.

A TWO HOUR BOOK for ONE CREDIT???

What would have made Valdez is Coming better?

5 more hours of content. When I bought the book I missed the fact that it was only 2 hours loing. It is not a book, its a short story.

Valdez is Coming

Fun recording! A little like watching the story on a vintage TV show but having your imagination fill in the blanks which is way better. I look forward to more stories to blank out the hassles of rush hour traffic.

Elmore Leonard at his best

Only thing wrong with this reading is that it's too short .., but that's the story, short, intense, exciting.
