Summary

In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his memory. All he knew for certain was that someone wanted him dead - and that he had better learn why. But everywhere he turned there seemed to be more questions - or people too willing to hide the truth behind a smoke screen of lies. He had only the name he had been told was his own, his mysterious skill with a gun, and a link to a half million dollars’ worth of buried gold as evidence of his past life. Was the treasure his? Was he a thief? A killer? He didn’t have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn’t know about himself, others did - and if he didn’t unlock the secret of his past, he wasn’t going to have much of a future.

Well paced yarn

What did you like most about The Man Called Noon?

Have read some Louis L'Amour books many years ago but not this one. I liked the mystery and almost detective like nature of the story. Only iritant was the same questions within the central characters mind repeated perhaps too often in the narrative. Otherwise an enjoyable story with some vivid detail of the characters, countryside and area.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Mendel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Well read, some narrators grate but I enjoyed this narrator's style and voice.

Any additional comments?

Would try another Louis L'Amor audio book from the same narrator.

Another Great Louis L'Amour Story


As a Louis L'Amour fan, I've seen the movie, read the book, and have now enjoyed "The Man Called Noon" in audiobook form. The audiobook being my preference.

Steven Mendel gave a great performance.

If you've never read Louis L'Amour, this would be a great first. If you're a fan, it's a must!

Solid read

This one is little different than the other Lamour books I have listened to, but in a good way. Suspenseful and exciting to the end, narrator does an excellent job.

One of His Best!

Each time I start reading one of Mr. L'Amour's book, I wonder how this book will top the last one that I read. I love the adventure and his characters even the bad ones, but I am, then enthralled again. out of his books, 1 is the highest rating and 10, the lowest. This one is a 2 because some of the story drags a little. I gave "Reilly's Luck" my favorite and a 1.
