Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Although it boasts a tighter plot than its prequel (Flint's Gift, 1997), the second volume in Wheeler's trilogy about frontier newspaperman Sam Flint suffers, like the first, from a weak, unbelievable ending. Flint's curiosity, integrity and stubbornness are rarely appreciated by local politicos, and in his life he's often had to bug out of town in a hurry before the tar-and-feather boys showed up. In this tale, set in 1870, Flint sets up shop editing The Nugget in Oro Blanco, N.Mex., a gold-mining boomtown divided between greedy Yankees and poor, struggling Mexicans. Poking around for stories, honest Flint smells a rata conspiracy involving everyone from the mine owners to the saloonkeepers and the town marshall. Meanwhile, the villainous gringos who first welcomed The Nugget get worried as Flint begins to report the illegal activities of some unsavory town officials, and soon the baddies decide Flint has to go. A violent and unexpected murder lights the fuse for the final showdown, but the conclusion fizzles out with nary a sputter. (May)
Kirkus Reviews
Middle entry in a welcome Western trilogy begun with Flint's Gift (1997), to be followed by Flint's Honor, about frontier journalist Sam Flint, who in Gift was seduced into starting up The Payday Pioneer in Payday, Arizona. Flynn has now moved on to the rich gold fields of Oro Blanco, New Mexico, where he opens the—what else?þOro Blanco Nugget. But how can a weekly paper stay in business when uprooting corruption and injustice means going against the big mining bosses who can run him out of town after they wreck his case boxes of type? Wheeler (see above) is a master both of frontier detail and the fine points of newspapering, while his storytelling is not likely to upset parents nervous about jalape¤o in the guacamole.

    When you get to p.155 it goes back to p.148. So you can't read the last 90 pages.
