One sometimes forgets how skilled how skilled a writer Grey was; this is a two-part story of a youth turned gunman turned Texas Ranger. Gene Engene has a choppy vocal style; he is given to unexpected pauses, stresses in odd places, and vocalizations that are not entirely full but inject character all the same. The general pace is slow, but his Western cadences fit this Zane Grey oat opera rather well. Engene is effective in delivering distinctive men's voices, often harsh and guttural; he is not so competent with the women, who all sound pretty much the same. Still, readers/listeners of Westerns will generally like this sharply recorded, quality presentation. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 92]
