This was an excellent book. Great character development, lots of action. The book grabbed me from the first page and held my interest all the way through. I've read and enjoyed a lot of Elmore Leonard's books, but this is the first western of his I've read, and I've never been a fan of westerns but this book has created a desire in me to read some more from that genre. The motivations of the book's characters were believable and I found myself caring about what happened to them. That's something that's hard to find with most books. For anyone else who enjoys this type of book (adventure, one man against overwhelming odds), I would recommend Last of the Breed by Louis L'Amour, and Winter of Frankie Machine by Don Winslow.… (mais)
