Summary

Meet Hunter Buchanon, a towering mountain of a man who learned how to track prey in Georgia, kill in the Civil War, and prospect in the Black Hills of Dakota. Now he's trying to live a peaceful gun-free life - but fate has other plans for him....

When Hunter Buchanon rescued a wounded coyote pup - and named him Bobby Lee - he had no idea the cute little varmint would grow up to be such a loyal companion. Coyotes aren't known to be man's best friend. Most of them are as fierce and wild as the Black Hills they roam. But Bobby Lee is different. When Hunter is ambushed on the road, Bobby Lee leaps to his defense. And when the attacker tries to shoot Bobby Lee, Hunter returns the favor by hitting the man with a rock.

By the time the smoke clears, the coyote-loving ex-Confederate is covered in blood - and the other guy's got a knife in his chest. Now Hunter has to explain it all to the local sheriff. Which is going to be tough. Because the man he just killed is the sheriff's deputy....

couldn't finish it

I don't know what it is about this book that is different from most Johnstone books but it just doesn't make the grade.

Ending

It leaves you yearning for the next book. I can't hardly wait for the second book.

So much killing

If you like killing this is your book. Yes he gets the girl. But not much of a plot. Just killing and more killing.

Sophomoric at best

While the story is passable, somewhat entertaining, it lacks the detail and story to make it gripping. It also is inaccurate in details that are placed to make it seem more accurate. A bridle set has bridle chain s whereas the book asserts the “bridle chain”, there is no such thing. The reading is terrible. The voices of characters are made out like whiny third graders rather than gritty men of the west. A cross between Bullwinkle and Gomer Pile. A disappointment. I will not listen to another book read by this guy.

Very bad narration.

This is the absolutely worst narrator I heve ever heard. He puts commas in his speech at the most incorrect places. It was so annoying that I will consciously avoid any books he narrates. The story and the Johnstones deserve better.
