Critic Reviews

 “Robert Dunn unloads both barrels - Dead Man's Badge is a fast, furious shootout from beginning to end. This tale of corrupt cops, cartel killers, and one bad guy just trying to make good, lingers like gun smoke. Bloody, dark, and pistol-whip smart, it's Border noir at its best.” (J. Todd Scott, author of The Far Empty

“Fans of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns will find a lot to like.” (Publishers Weekly)

"In Dunn's capable hands, readers will jump onboard for the ride. Dunn is a gifted writer and he opens Dead Man's Badge with one of the most gripping scenes I've ever read. Fans of grit will love this fast-paced book." (Mystery Scene Magazine)

a good book

the book was very interesting the development of the scenario was very good everything was written with a big amount of thought behind it and as a listener and a reader you can see it the narrator did a good enough job I think it could have done a tiny bit better but overall the book was so good that I enjoyed it very much

Great story, bad narrator!

As we enter the immense desert of the Southwest we find our protagonist Longview Moody digging his own grave. Longview’s luck did not improve all that much throughout the book. Longview’s twin brother, former Ranger and now police chief gets himself killed in Longview’s trailer. Longview decides to take his brother’s place and heads for the small Texas town to find out whether it was he or his brother that was targeted. What Longview walks into is a huge conspiracy of crime and corruption between the Mexican Cartel, DEA enforcement, and the local police. Throughout the story Longview struggles with who he is and who his brother would have been. The intricate story between players is exceptional to say the least. What would have made it five star is a better narrator than the dead pan voice we are given. I put up with the voice because the story was so good.
