Publisher's Summary

The tough-skinned novels of famed Western writer Ralph Cotton regularly appear on the USA Today best-seller list.

Arizona Ranger Sam Burrack thought he’d seen every despicable act of cruelty and murder any man could exact on another. He thought wrong. When he stumbles upon the butchered remains of a scalp-taking massacre, he’s choked with disgust. So Burrack teams up with veteran Sheriff Boyd Tackett, who’s more than willing to help bring these vile rats to justice.

Great story.

My first Ralph Cotton book and I'm hooked. George Guidall is probably the best narrators out there and he did another amazing job on this great story.

Superb narration cannot save a mediocre story

No one narrates westerns (or mysteries or just about anything else) better than George Guidall, and his matchless performance makes this book a pleasant listening experience. But the story is disappointing. Cotton's version of the wild west reminds me of a 1950s movie. Anyone who enjoyed the verisimilitude of HBO's extraordinary series Deadwood will likely find this novel unsatisfying. The storyline is predictable and contrived, the characters are cardboard stereotypes, and the dialog is weak. If I had been reading this book on paper, I would have abandoned it after the first couple of chapters. It was only Guidall's performance that kept me engaged to the end.
