Summary

Orphaned as a child, Mike Bastian was taken in by the legendary outlaw Ben Curry, and raised and trained to take over his empire of crime. Today, Mike is the quickest draw and the stealthiest tracker around, and Ben Curry is getting ready to retire. To test Mike's wings, he has set him a task: the planning and execution of a gold-train robbery.

Now, as he prepares for his first criminal job, Mike must decide whether to follow the path that has been set before him or to carve out a destiny of his own. If he assumes the position of gang leader, he will face deadly competition from within Curry's band, but if he refuses, he may not be allowed to leave the pack alive. The dilemma is further complicated when he falls for Drusilla, Ben Curry's real daughter, who knows nothing of her father's career. Either way Mike chooses, a showdown is in store.

Round 'em up, cowboy! Don't miss more from Louis L'Amour.

Narrator

The narrator was absolutely terrible. He cleared his throat, coughed and re-read lines too numerous to count. Ruined a possibly good story.

Performance problems

The reader sounds good, but keeps repeating sentences or words--quite distracting. The story of course is classic Lamour, a great yarn.

Story Good... Bad Edit

This had to be the worst edit of anything I have heard on Audible. I am glad it was a "Plus" book. Otherwise I would want my money back. Come on Audible, even a child could do better.

Good book, but needs audio editing.

Love the story and the narrator is wonderful, but none of the reading errors were edited out (including several instances of throat clearing). I would hope that this oversight would be fixed for future listeners.

Bad Performance/ Editing

The narrator repeats lines many times. He even talks to someone else at the recording studio several times.

Good L’Amour classic, but poor audio quality

The narrator sounded just like an old cowhand. I enjoyed his voice.
But, like others had noted, the audio quality was very poor.
1) clearly no editing had been done
2) the audio “tone” changed several times as if different equipment had been switched out and back again.
3) His occasional stumbles (natural enough) and coughs/clearing voice were left in.
At first, it was easy to overlook, but towards the past couple of chapters it became disruptive.
Audible should pull this book and do some editing before rereleasing it.

Excellent story

Although the story was excellent the reading was full of repeat sentence reading, misreads then followed by corrected reading. These disruptions diminished the quality of listening to this book. It almost seemed as if this was his first time recording an audiobook.

Okay story, poor audio editing.

Rather a simplistic L'Amore story. The narrator has a great gravelly "old-timer" kind of voice that goes well with the story.

The "BAD" part of the story is the audio editing, or rather the lack of it. Many times during the narration, you hear the narrator clear his throat, repeat words, pause in the wrong place or repeat sentences. Also, there are a few places where he restarts reading and the volume level is off.

I have listened to several L'Amore titles, owned by Blackstone Audio, on Audible the past several weeks and this one doesn't show Blackstone in a good light.

Great story, bad editing

I loved this story and the narrator was good but there was either no editing or just bad editing because there were a lot of mistakes in it.

Great story, terrible editing

it's a great story, read by normally great narrator. but the editing on this one leaves much to be desired, from repeated lines and unnecessary throat clearing to misread words corrected in haste and personal thoughts interjected in the reading. Much of that could and should have been edited out making this a better version . Still worth the time .
