    This is my second Louis L Amour book that I ve read I didn t like it as much as the first book, but it was okay I liked the main character and the story line was intriguing My hesitation is with the other characters I wish there had beendepth It felt like they only had brief stage presence where they said their two lines and exited.

    L Amour jumps the shark in this book when he brings a supernatural element into what otherwise would have been a classic western tale I grabbed this book because the story plays out near where I live in southern California It s always fun to find the real life locations L Amour writes about, but as soon as the story took a turn toward the supernatural, I lost interest In the end, the book was OK.


  6. Fredrick Danysh Fredrick Danysh says:

    From a master of the Western genre, this novel the Mulkerin families attempt to forestall foreclosure of their Malibou ranch in the 1840s Includes the mandatory damsel in distress and crooks trying to rob and murder the family Also included is a rich ex fiancee who wants revenge Well written without the profanity and sex found in manymodern Westerns and other genres.


  7. Jeff Learned Jeff Learned says:

    The historical epilogue was my favorite part Even at two stars, Lamour is a fun read listen.


  8. Laura Laura says:

    Another good Louis L Amour This one was a little different since it was set almost completely in California I liked the superstition of it.


  9. Jeff Dickison Jeff Dickison says:

    A mystical western that works only if you can forgive L Amour for the supernatural elements Plot concerns a land grab and how the owners fight the bad dudes Recommended to L Amour fans, but other western fans might not appreciate the twilight zone approach.
