If only he hadn't found the hat. Or the dead guy. Or the steamer trunk. Or the rag doll. If only he hadn't found any of these things, everything might have been okay. But he had found them. All of them.
Now Carson Halliday is on the run, trying his damnedest to keep one step ahead of a dangerous gang of outlaws and mad men. A run leading him from town to town in the dry wasteland of the southern New Mexico desert, over dark hills and dangerous plains, through shantytowns and city streets, and, most frightening of all, into the mysterious depths of the human heart.
This is one of those gritty stories that suck you in until you just need to know what the heck is happening. The narrator's voice has a great drawl that adds something to a story like this. The story itself is very, very good. I'll be looking for more of Mr Zelazny's audiobooks.
