Death Waits at Sundown: A Wild West Showdown Between the Good, the Bad, and the Deadly

Overview


Lynn Taylor and his kid brother Frank may not be angels, but they’re not devils, either.  They’re just a couple of men—two-fisted Texans who have landed on the wrong side of a corrupt lawman.  And like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, they’re up to their necks in trouble.

Young Frank’s been framed for robbery, rustling and murder, and if Lynn doesn’t think fast, his brother’s going to end up the guest of dishonor at a hanging ...

Overview


Lynn Taylor and his kid brother Frank may not be angels, but they’re not devils, either.  They’re just a couple of men—two-fisted Texans who have landed on the wrong side of a corrupt lawman.  And like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, they’re up to their necks in trouble.

Young Frank’s been framed for robbery, rustling and murder, and if Lynn doesn’t think fast, his brother’s going to end up the guest of dishonor at a hanging party.  Lynn cooks up a daring plan to clear his brother’s name and rope in the real outlaw.

But it means Lynn will have to turn outlaw himself, and if he’s caught, it’ll be his neck on the line—and in the noose.

Hailing from the western states of Nebraska, Oklahoma and Montana, Hubbard grew up surrounded by grizzled frontiersmen and leather-tough cowboys. When he chose to write stories of the Old West, Hubbard didn’t have to go far to do his research, drawing on his own memories of a youth steeped in the life and legends of the American frontier.

Also includes the Western adventures, Ride ’Em Cowboy, the story of a man and woman’s rodeo rivalry that leads to romance, and Boss of the Lazy B, in which a lady gets swindled—and the swindler ultimately gets justice.

 “A great bit of escapist fiction. . . . Lots of fun in a small package.” —DWD’s Reviews

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"So, do yourself a favor and punch some dogies or just get this super awesome audiobook." —Gil T Wilson

"When his brother, Frank, is thrown in jail for robbery and murder, Lynn Taylor pulls out all the stops to prove his innocence, including an ill-conceived plan to stage a robbery while Frank is behind bars, so the vigilantes getting ready to string Frank up would see they have the wrong guy. The title story of this trio of westerns (first published in 1938) is fast paced and clever, pitting a resourceful and determined hero against a ruthless and nasty villain. Much less successful is “Ride ’Em, Cowboy!,” an insubstantial love story revolving around a couple of rodeo riders, your standard plucky girl and square-shouldered boy. It’s mostly forgettable, but fortunately it’s followed by “Boss of the Lazy B,” which is definitely back to Hubbard’s pulp-writing A-game, with the beautiful Susan Price coming to the defense of an accused “murdering half-breed” cattle rustler, to the consternation of Susan’s would-be suitor, rancher Bill Bailey. It, too, is a romance at heart, but this time Hubbard works the love story into a nicely constructed western plot. Two hits and a miss, but, overall, worthwhile reading for genre fans." —David Pitt, Booklist

School Library Journal - Audio
Gr 7 Up—These three classic Western stories (Galaxy Press, 2012) by prolific writer L. Ron Hubbard were originally published in issues of the pulp magazine, Western Story, in 1938. "Death Waits at Sundown" tells of the Taylor brothers, Lynn and Lee. Framed for cattle rustling and murder, Lee is about to be hanged by a vigilante group. Aided by the former sheriff, Lynn turns the tables and saves his younger brother. "Ride 'Em, Cowboy!" is a light-hearted love story about rodeo stars, Long Tom and Vicky Stanton. In "Boss of the Lazy B," Spick Murphy kidnaps rancher Susan Price's kid brother after fooling her into having her lawyer father get him acquitted on charges of cattle rustling. When Susan comes to rancher Bill Bailey, begging him to rescue her brother, he exacts a stiff price—her hand in marriage. The full-cast narration, with full sound effects and a musical score, features Fred Tatasciore as the lead voice. These are well-done, entertaining tales, but because they were written more than 70 years ago, some terms used to describe minorities might be offensive to listeners.—John R. Clark, Hartland Public Library, ME
