    Hilarious

    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.

    Funniest. Author. EVER.

    I mean really. Her "thrillers" are great. Her funny stories are even better. I love this woman! And so many of her books are free. I'm going to quit being a cheapskate now and buy the rest. ;-)

    Giggled all the way through!

    I loved this book. This is one of my favorite authors and have read everything she has written. Laughed through this book so hard my husband thought I was crazy. Being from a small town I know people just like those in the book so I can see this happening. Well worth the read and read the Bubba books they are also very very good.

    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.

    An entertaining romp!

    Yes, the book contains foul language and all the swear words, including a whole bunch of new ones straight from the author's imagination. But - and it's a big but - they fit these wacky characters like well-tailored clothes. Accept that and you will find this book to be clever, funny, engaging, and wonderfully quirky. I loved her "Bubba" series, but I think this one is my favorite.

    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.

    Just can't get through this one

    I have loved every C.L. Bevill book until this one. I've gotten bored with the redundant analogies/colloquialisms and the insults too-often exchanged with Paacal's reflection. There are even oft-repeated phrases from her other books. I've grown tired of reading them and that is so disappointing because I loved the Bubba, Shadow People and Lake People series.

    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.

    I'M 60 YEARS OLD AND I THOUGHT I KNEW EVERY CUSS WORD IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE!

    Truly inventive cussing, and most of it without a dirty word in it. I laughed all the way through this book. If you can't get passed the f-word, then you'll miss out on aa lot of fun. The plot is fast and zany - the good guys sometimes act like bad guys, but the bad guys ALWAYS act like bad guys.

    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.
