This is Elmore Leonard's seminal western classic. If you read only one western, this should be it. It is written in a completely believable manner, with an eye to detail that is deceptively spare. His characters, both good and bad, are presented in a style that is uniquely Leonard, compelling without excess or extraneous detail. The plot is well developed and moves very fast to a trilling ending.

It takes Valdez a while to get moving. The character that is. He's too nice for most of the book but then he shows some spunk and sparkle.

If you enjoyed the movie starring Burt Lancaster , you will like this book. A fan of westerns, I was curiuos how several movie scenes are described in the book. The movie is an accurate portrayal of the book. Elmore Leonard kept me interested and wanting to know what would happen next to Bob Valdez. The book delves deeper into Valdez's military and romantic history. Valdez is a character to root for, while his opponents come off as bullies, philanderers and weaklings quite bored with their lot in life. I enjoyed Leonard's detailed descrptions of the scenery and locales. This is a good story of one man standing up against a strong community of men to gain a reward for a victim of violent crime.

Valdez is just a Mexican they use to solve their problems. When he kills the wrong man and believes the widow deserves compensation, he is beaten and left for dead. Valdez comes back to teach them a lesson.
