Richard McGonagle narrates this Western by the author of THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY. Its entertaining cast of characters includes Winchell Dear, a longtime professional gambler; Sonia, his Native American housekeeper; Pablo, a Mexican drug mule; Peter Long Grass, a Native American squatting on Winchell's ranch; and Luther, a seven-foot rattlesnake. Waller's writing style is often uneven--the dialogue is sometimes clunky, and no transitions lead the reader from one character to another. Nevertheless, McGonagle moves the story along, capturing the essence of the characters and building the suspense. His warm voice adds richness to the listening experience in a top-notch performance.
