    Good.

    The book was not for me - so I cannot review it.

    A bit of a downer

    In first three books you expected competence and good judgement from at least some of the characters. None here.

    Still, it was an adventure...

    20 years after the death of his partner, Augustus McCrae, Captain Woodrow Call is hired to track down a ruthless Mexican train robber, but now he is pushing 70 and it is showing. Along for the journey was an accountant from New York who had no idea about the ways of the West, Pea Eye from the Hat Creek outfit (who is now married to Lorena), and a deputy Call hired along the way. The Mexican bandit they are trying catch was no ordinary thief, though. He¿s had a hard life, and is as ruthless as they come. His mother, Maria, does everything she can to keep him out of harm¿s way¿even venturing into the infamous Crow Town to find him. An old man, a family man, and two men that don¿t have a clue what they¿re doing¿ think they have a chance at this ruthless killer? I couldn¿t put it down! If you¿ve read Lonesome Dove, you¿ll adore Streets of Laredo. It¿s not like your ¿typical¿ western novel¿it taps into all of your emotions. You empathize with all of the characters, and at times forget whose side you¿re really on. One moment, McMurtry makes you laugh, he makes you bawl your eyes out. I definitely recommend this and all of Larry McMurtry¿s novels.

    A Bit Disappointed

    Even though fans of Larry McMurtry naturally have high expectations for the sequel, Streets of Laredo, after having read Pulitzer Prize winner, Lonesome Dove, they are left somewhat dissatisfied. It has now been almost twenty years since the Hat Creek Outfit drove cattle to Montana. Captain Call has been hired to stop a young Mexican bandit, Joey Garza. The young bandit is notorious for his ability to stalk his quarry with his rifle¿s telescopic sight at a distance of hundreds of yards. Call, who is growing older, must outsmart this young swift outlaw despite hardships and setbacks. Call and his posse which includes two inexperienced deputies and Pea Eye Parker, an original Hat Creek member, go after Garza on a long drawn out chase. Two prominent female individuals also help shape the plot. Lorena, from Lonesome Dove, now married to Pea, and Maria, Joey Garza¿s strong Mexican mother, accompany and help conclude the fate of both Call and the infamous Joey Garza. Although McMurtry admirers are a bit letdown, this skillfully written sequel leaves readers amazed by the unexpected outcome.

    Good, but doesn't live up to its predecessor

    Streets of Laredo is a good book; however, Larry McMurty spends too much time developing characters who do not affect the plot. Even so, the book moves quickly has a strong story and is very unpredictable. In true McMurty fashion the end is a suprise.

    Larry Mcmurtry, what do you expect?

    Another classic Lonesome Dove novel. McMurtry is the absolute very best. I love all his books. This one was one of his very very best. He has a wonderful imagination. He combines action, with drama and romance. This is another five star novel.
