Summary

Here are two exciting stories featuring Lance Kilkenny by beloved Western writer Louis L'Amour.

In "A Man Called Trent", nester Dick Moffitt lies dead, killed by King Bill Hale's riders. His son Jack and adopted daughter Sally, who witnessed the murder, go for safety to a cabin owned by a man called "Trent" - an alias for Kilkenny, who is seeking to escape his reputation as a gunfighter.

In "The Rider of Lost Creek," Lance Kilkenny is the fastest gun in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny's life. Now Davis needs Kilkenny's help with a pair of feuding ranchers taking over his property.

fine story and good performance

haven't read a Louis L'Amour story for years and have now finished 2 in one book. only regret that the 21deg of the 2 stories is not reversed. My suggestion is you listen to the 2nd one first.

Standard L'Amour but beware....

Two enjoyable stories. As with many L'Amour titles, the plots are essentially similar - fast draw good guy takes on the baddies, with a little help and a beautiful girl in the background. Be honest though, that's why we love L'Amour. BE AWARE though that whether it's Audible or the publisher, for some reason the story that is second on the recording is actually the first chronologically, which is slightly annoying.

Listen to the second book first. chapter 21.

The books will be in chronological order if you listen to the second one first at chapter 21. I did not know that but enjoyed them anyway.

the narration was horrible. The story is slow

the narration was horrible. The story is slow which is uncommon for a Louis L'Amour adventure. I think the narration is what made it the most unbearable. unfortunately I've waited too long to exchange it.

Stupidly put the stories out of order.

Instead of putting the stories in chronological order, they start with the later book, then go back in time to an earlier story. Such a ridiculous mistake.

Louis L'Amour - A hard act to follow

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes due to the fact that from the very first, the characters are introduced and as the story progresses each feeling is described.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Man Called Trent?

When Trent discovered he was a man of the west with specific values that he would fight for.

Who was the most memorable character of A Man Called Trent and why?

Trent, because he had enough forsight to realize that just being a fast gun wasn't enough. He knew the true gun fighter should stay in the background.

Not much here

I only read the first story in the book, it was not interesting enough to entice me to read the second. I did not like the protagonist, he was arrogant and too good at everything. I did not like the narrator either. Also the protagonists unwillingness to kill the bad guys seemed strange. This was my first book by L’Amour so i may try one more but i would not recommend this.

Read the second book first.

I really wish someone had taken into consideration that the Trent story really needs to be after the main character is introduced.

cowboy up

excellent narration and story, I'll be looking for more Louis stories. Trent is a great story, I'm sure the rest will be just as good.

why did they put part 2 in chapter 1?

they had the 2md half of the stroy 1st. you listen at, I think, chapter 21 and all of those chapter after occurred before chapter 1.

not sure how louis was so great. very average book,
