Like all Louis L¿amor books, A Man Called Noon is very intriguing and enjoyable story. Although it is fiction, it is a very realistic story. It is filled with action and mystery, and if you are a fan of westerns, I would recommend that you read this book.The story is set in the late 1800¿s around the desert regions of Texas, New Mexico, and Old Mexico. Ben Janish, a hired gunman was paid to kill the main character of the story. The main character managed to get away, but a head wound from a bullet and a fall out of a window caused him to develop amnesia. He then met a man named Remes who took care of his wounds and got him a job on a ranch that also served as a hideout for the local outlaws. Among these outlaws was Janish who was away at the time. While on this ranch the protagonist is trying to find out who he is, what his past was, and why Ben Janish is trying to kill him. During this time our main character decides to call himself Jonas. He also discovers that though he has lost a majority of his memory, he still has his instincts, which help him in finding out who he really is. Although he has many clues, they are not easy to piece together. All that he has to work with is a letter addressed to a man named Ruble Noon, an outlaw mustang that seems to know him, a tongue-less Mexican, and a cabin in the mountains. While trying to find out who he is, he falls in love and has many action packed duels and brawls with various characters. So if you enjoy good westerns filled with gunfights, barroom brawls, romance and mystery this is a book you should read

This is one of the best westerns I have ever read. Half mystery, half adventure, this book is classic L'Amour storytelling

Louis carefully creates a puzzle that keeps you on your toes! I could not put this book down, it was the first of his books that I read.
