Gruff-voiced Richard Ferrone sounds wind-burned and crinkly-skinned, which is how one pictures the title gunslinger, a former marshal of Tombstone. Happier to kill a miscreant than to arrest one, he happens to be a mite smarter than the good--AND evil-doing--Old West citizens. His shrewdness serves him better than his gun when a town hires him to oversee the hanging of a jailed bandito, whose ruthless gang plots to free him. Ferrone makes expert use of the tense situation, sly humor, vivid characterization, and excellent dialogue of this suspenseful Western. He makes the listener look forward to the next volume in a promising series. Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
