Publisher's Summary

He had led the posse for miles through the desert, but now Matt Keelock was growing desperate. He was worried about Kristina. His trip to the town of Freedom for supplies had ended in a shootout. If caught he would hang. Even though Kris could handle a horse and rifle as well as most men, the possibility of Oskar Neerland's finding her made Matt's blood run cold. He knew the violent and obsessive Neerland, publicly embarrassed when Matt had stepped in and stolen Kris away, would try to kill them both if given half a chance.

Matt tried to convince himself that Neerland had returned to the East. But Matt was wrong. Miles away in the town of Freedom, Oskar Neerland was accepting a new job. In his first duty as marshal, he would lead the posse that was tracking down Matt Keelock.

One of My Favorites

This is one of my favorite the Westerner gets the Girl in the end L'Amour books. I really can't much more with out spoiling it for you. The Audible read is as you would expect first rate.

Hooked from the start.

If you could sum up The Key-Lock Man in three words, what would they be?

Captivating Good Read

What did you like best about this story?

Although the plot was very familiar it had a few twists to it that kept you interested...

Which character – as performed by Jason Culp – was your favorite?

The hero - Matt Keelock was my favorite -

Who was the most memorable character of The Key-Lock Man and why?

It is difficult in Louis L'Amour's books to side with anyone but the main character - in this case Matt Keelock.

Any additional comments?

Like all of his writings Louis L'Amour does a great job of describing the wild west - I'm a horse rancher in Canada's desert country and enjoy the realism of his characters and their surroundings.
