Assisted by Luv Lass a young newlywed named Darcey Teller seeks to identify and to bring to justice her murdered husband's killers. Using Darcey's expertise as a photographer, the two unlikely heroines devise a machination they refer to as "The Kill Shot" as a means of accomplishing this deadly task. But first they must do battle with each other, with their own social differences and with Darcey's desire for vengeance over justice, before ultimately battling it out with the bad men. Just who is saving whom and from what? That is a question that you will ponder frequently as the story unfolds.

The plot, plus short-ish chapters.
Darcy. Emotions constantly torn, intelligent, talented, probably beautiful.
American accents, authencicity to the commentary.
I was moved by some of the events and although the plot and characters were predictable at times, the ending was excellent.
An original and exciting story, a great cowboy story.
Having read Tony Gavin's first book, Wooden Star, I was looking forward to reading this. His style has improved immensely from last time, the characters seemed a lot more real. I got completely lost in this book it was so enjoyable.
I know shouldn't like them, but both Rick and Jake get my vote. Nasty pieces of work from the start. They both come across as being totally ruthless and uncompromising and not having an emotional or remorseful bone in their body. I've always harboured a slight desire to play the really bad guy in a film and both these fit the bill.
Not listened to any others yet but I intend to
No, I just enjoyed the whole book from start to finish.
Second superb book from this up and coming author. The Kill Shot is a good step up from his last book, Wooden Star, much grittier and totally gripping. I look forward to (hopefully) more books from Mr Gavin. I'm not normally a fan of Western fiction, but hats off to him, I'm totally converted after reading this.
This was the first western I've ever listened to and a break from my usual reading and listening material.
The story moved quickly and there's a great twist at the end of the book, I can't say more about the end without ruining it.
He had a good range of voices and he brought the characters personalities through.
The book was a bit to long to listen to in one sitting for me, but it did help make 2 gym sessions and a 10k run fun.
I'd definitely give another one of the authors books a listen to if anymore become available on Audible.
