Actor/singer Jim Gough reads a Western tale about a gunfighter's son who is hired to round up some counterfeiters in the 1880s. Revenge and the Carson City mint figure into the plot, which Gough narrates with a native Texas accent. While Gough's voice comes across as natural and entertainingly appropriate for the genre, his character voices are neither distinguished nor three-dimensional. This is a small caveat for a book that is as fun to hear as a bacon double-cheeseburger is to eat. Occasional sound effects enhance the story, and guitar strumming creates transitions.
