In unabridged audio, this sequel has the feel of a cliff-hanger. Michael Russotto brings bartender and unlikely Western hero Jack Crabb to life with a touch of a Western twang and more than a little bragging, even though Crabb admits to being unsure of himself, cynical and timid. Although reading mainly in Crabb's first-person voice, Russotto does credible voices for such legendary characters as Bat Masterson and Wild Bill Hickok, giving them tones of authority matching their characters. But today's listeners will also notice that Crabb's character, while wise and decent, is not politically correct. J.A.S.
