Alan Zimmerman reads this masculine sporting tale in an expository manner. In the late 1800s, 55-year old Leo Guild, a hired gun and bounty hunter who dislikes boxing, needs money, so he accepts a job locating a missing prizefighter and guarding the promoter's cash receipts from the big fight. Guild meets Clarice Watson, a mulatto woman whose brother died in the ring and who's seeking revenge. Listeners will learn a great deal about prizefighting and race in the Old West. The combination of Gorman's gritty prose and Zimmerman's stoic but dramatic narration proves to be unique. This is recommended especially for men and boys.
