Humourless and cliched

This story is bit like a fifties/sixties comic strip. The hero is a Texas Ranger, righteous and square jawed. He’s like a Boy Scout. The baddies are also stereotypical. A small town drug baron and his ex military psychopathic son. The love interests are of course,flawless, beautiful goddesses who remain chaste throughout. The plot glosses over all sorts of improbabilities. In the end the Texas Ranger overcomes adversity and the baddies. The only mild surprise is that he doesn’t get either girl. They were lucky to escape! Apart from this it’s predictable. There is no humour (except occasional unintentional amusement)

Gripping

Excellent story and performance that has you hooked from start to finish. Strong characters brought to life so vividly you can picture them in your minds eye. I've never been to Texas, or even America come to that, but after listening to that story I feel that I have, so rich were the descriptions in the narrative.

Most Enjoyable Book for Ages

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, listening in one go. Great characters, twists and turns, just a romping, stomping good book.
