In a tasty combination, audio theater is combined with "he-man" action of the Old West. This installment in the adventures of mountain man Smoke Jensen will satisfy your audio cravings like a warm bowl of chili by the camp fire. Johnstone paints his story in the broad strokes of the adventure novel, and Doug Van Liew is man enough for every brawl, gunfight, and bullet dug out of the flesh with a red-hot bowie knife. This audiobook is a guilty pleasure; the noble savage Jensen is pursued by German sport hunters who hunger for his blood. Treat yourself to this well-produced bit of escapism. D.J.B.
