Publisher's Summary

Phil Sundeen thinks Deputy Sheriff Kirby Frye is just a green local kid with a tin badge. And when the wealthy cattle baron's men drag two prisoners from Frye's jail and hang them from a high tree, there's nothing the young lawman can do about it. But Kirby's got more grit than Sundeen and his hired muscle bargained for. They can beat the boy and humiliate him, but they can't make him forget the oath he has sworn to uphold. The cattleman has money, power, and guns on his side, but Kirby Frye is the law in this corner of the Arizona Territories, and he'll drive a rich man to his knees to prove it.

A Really Good Early Western Novel of Elmore Leonard

This is a very good, somewhat traditional, American Western, novel by Elmore Leonard. It is one of his early novels. The narration by Richard Poe is excellent. The story itself is good and moves along at a fairly brisk pace. I liked the novel and plan on reading more novels by Elmore Leonard. As far as an audiobook performance, I definitely will look for more narrations by Richard Poe. Thank You...

Classic Leonard, Amazing Narrator

It is hard to beat an Elmore Leonard western, but when you combine it with the exceptional narration of Richard Poe, it's like watching a movie in your mind.

Leonard's scene/perspective-based style, complex characters, and Poe's distinct voicing for each, allows the dialog attributions other literary distractions to disappear and the story to flow without any effort to keep up.

I will definitely be looking for more books with this combination.

not his best

plot was rambling with little suspense nor meaningfulness. this was not up to normally, excellently constructed Elmore Leonard stories.
