Summary

Louis L’Amour takes William Tell Sackett on a treacherous passage from the Arizona goldfields to the booming town of Los Angeles.

Tell Sackett was no ladies’ man, but he could spot trouble easily enough. And Dorinda Robiseau was the kind of trouble he wanted to avoid at any time - even more so when he had 30 pounds of gold in his saddlebags and a long way to travel. But when she begged him for safe passage to Los Angeles, Sackett reluctantly agreed. Now he’s on a perilous journey through the most brutal desert on the continent, traveling with a companion he doesn’t trust...and headed for a confrontation with a deadly gunman who also bears the name of Sackett.

Oh! The Suspense!

Captivating to the very end. The reader knows how to fluctuate his voice for the different characters in the story, and his delivery is a masterpiece.

Book ends too soon!

I am a huge fan of these books but it seems like either got lazy while writing this book or was on a rushed production schedule and had to quickly end the book. The book lacks a real ending! Disappointing!

Wow! What a story

It kept me hocked until the end. You never quite know what the Sackets will do. They are quite a hard and strong lot

Excellent

This book was a much better recording than some of David Strathairn’s others. Even though we were listening while traveling by car, we could hear every word. We are in the process of listening to the Sackett series and enjoy them so very much. L’amour is my favorite writer.

Excellent

My only complaint with this story was unreasonable areas of nothing. Sometimes between chapters but also interspersed in the narrative. At times it seemed over a minute in length.

David Strathairn is the best narrator hands-down

he's very good at capturing the mood and flow of the story expressive yet soothing voice
