Look, if you don't like strong language this book probably isn't for you. But, if you have a ribald sense of humor, you will have a wonderful time reading about the antics of those trying to make money out of the death of a notorious outlaw. The book is well plotted and never slows down. With all the complicated double dealing by all parties involved, it still comes down to a satisfying ending. So what if just about every nasty word in the English language is used in the book? For me that's part of the charm of the story. It should be noted that nowhere is there a derogatory word describing someone's race or ethnicity. You know, the real obscene words. If you like having fun, you can't do better than this book.

it was an interesting read.

I am glad this book was free. The story would have been a lot better had the author not used so much bad language. Over all I enjoyed the plot.

    Bore

    I'm on page 152 and I'm bored. Wondering if I even want to bother finishing... I have liked her other books, but this one has not impressed me.

    Not for me!!!

    Found this book to be a total waste of my time. Cannot justify the raw and obscene language. After having read three of Bevil's other novels I was bitterly disappointed.

    Horrendous

    TRIED to read this after the fantastic Bubba & The Dead Woman. Sickening TRASH! Deleted all of the rest of her books, unread. Too many good books out there to waste my time with smut.

    Dull

    I have read other books by this author and really liked them, but for some reason, this one just didn't do it for me. I really didn't like the premise, and I didn't like skipping from one town back to the other.

    Boring

    This book was very hard to read. The material was uninteresting, and the character development was poor. I have read other books by this author and was surprised at how poorly written this was. I am glad it was free.

    Don't bother

    I only read about three chapters. I don't know if it gets better further on, but not worth it to me to keep reading.

    more from this reviewer

    Highly Recommended!!

    I had my doubts when I downloaded this book, but having read many other CL Bevill books, I decided to give it a try! I wasn't sorry, that's for sure. It was one of those books I hated to put down! (until i finished it anyway) :)
    It will definitely keep your interest!!!
