Great story, great MCs, great writing. It bugs me to admit that. I think I’ll put this one on the “re-read maybe” shelf and someday, possibly, read rather than listen to see if my opinion on the tale improves. Can you believe that? The characters are written in such a way that the reader thinks they know these guys and that would be true, but there are layers. Flynn was a smart ass but was loyal and true!

May 04, Trish rated it liked it Shelves: The audio was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The review must be at least 50 characters long. The richness and complexity of the plotting works as a kind of extended magic trick, seducing the reader into a balls-out showdown that kept me reading far into the wee hours. All they do is panic and faint and think of themselves and be stupid. By the close ofthe inhabitants of the American West had earned their reputation as untamed and dangerous.

I liked the plot and characterizations, but there was too little romance and sex in this one.
