Summary

In the days of the frontier West, it was not unusual for desperadoes and fugitives from justice to seemingly disappear from the face of the earth. Shadow on the Trail by Zane Grey, one of the best-selling authors of all time, is the story of one such man who returned to reestablish himself in a law-abiding society.

In Texas, young bank robber Wade Holden, once the toughest, fastest trigger man in the notorious Simm Bell gang, makes a promise to his dying mentor that he will go straight. He is tired of shooting, riding, and fighting. All he wants now is to settle down on the ranch for a nice peaceful life. But with the Rangers on his tail, he struggles to find sanctuary. With the help of a young woman and her family, he attempts to turn his life around in Arizona.

A classic western but narrator disappointing

I waited years for this book to be narrated, having been one of my favourites, and was very pleased when it became available, especially as I'm almost blind and can no longerread the print version. but what a disappointment! Bentley's narration is peculiar: He's fine with dialogue (which saved him from a one star rating) but the connecting narrative passages are delivered in a sing-song style with a downward pitch at the end of sentences and pauses are mostly in the wrong places. It was irritating and rendered some passages emotionally flat. I so like the story, I persisted to the end but please Audible, don't let Bentley loose on any more titles!
