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.

    Fun Read

    I enjoyed this book but had a hard time overlooking some obvious things that could not happen in the real-world (not a problem in a supernatural tale, but this was meant to happen in this world with no premise about ghosts).

    It was good book, parts of it are very funny, it has drama, roma

    It was good book, parts of it are very funny, it has drama, romance & lots of laughs as you watch the 2 towns who are fighting over the body of Billy each hoping to cash in big!

    Spoiler: this is really funny with all the different players, each having thier own agendas in wanting the body & how they can make that body payoff for thier town.The characters are real! the plot is real! Hey this was based on a tre story. Checked it out & you will see that there maybe, yes maybe, some politicians that actually do CARE about thier town!

    Not Bad

    This was a fun story and had a lot of humor. I could've done without all the background info and "interviews" about Bayou Billy. The story of the battle over his remains could stand alone. However, I did enjoy this book and recommend it to anyone looking for a humorous and fun read.
