Several recent nonfiction works--which Richard Wheeler mentions in an afterword to 'Trouble In Tombstone'--help us better understand the events surrounding the legendary OK Corral gunfight in Tombstone, Ariz. In this novel, Wheeler helps us experience the human dimension of the famous shootout in a way nonfiction can't, and provides compelling entertainment in the process. He recreates the dramatic events before and after the shootout as Wyatt himself (who narrates the novel) may have viewed them. Many others have based novels on the OK Corral gunfight, some of them very good, but I doubt if anyone has done it better or more realistically than Wheeler. If you like western fiction grounded in reality, that illuminates as well as entertains (as Wheeler's novels always do), you'll enjoy this novel.
