I am a Laymon fanatic who is on a mission to read all of his books. I eye balled this book for about a month. Not because I didn't want to read it but because I wanted to purchase other books of his at the time. But I kept coming back to this book and when I decided to give it a try, I was blown away. The first few chapters hook you right into the book. The way the book is written with the proper english grammar took me a while to get the hang of, then I couldn't stop talking like that for weeks LOL. But it is one of the most adventurous books I have ever read by Mr. Laymon. It goes from London to across the continent in the wild wild west of America. Seriously it does lack the usual demented killing and brutal deaths that Laymon loves, but he makes up for it at the end. Laymon has a way with his books where it says its about Jack the Ripper or about Vampires but its much more logical and real. He doesn't smother you with sci fi action and make you feel like your watching x-files. Please read and you will love!

I have always enjoyed most of Richard Laymon's books. Some are a little bizarre, but generally, they are at least entertaining and a fun read. However, this book went FAR BEYOND his other works in my mind and my wife's. I just surprised no one ever made a movie out of it. Absolutely superb, and I honestly believe one of the 10 best books I've ever read (that's saying a lot). It really didn't seem like him at all, until the very end. Terrific characters. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I rank this really close to the top of my Laymon book list. I enjoy his writing-although a tad bit far fetched at times. I wasn't sure how I'd like this 1800's book with a western theme. Well, I can't say enough good things about it. Trevor/Willy was a great character, who got himself in all kinds of trouble. I have to say if your a Laymon fan, get your hands on this book it is well worth the hunting for it!

After reading the first fifty pages or so of this novel I was hooked, but about halfway through I began to lose interest. I usually enjoy Laymon's novels all the way through, but this one was a little lengthy and repetitive at times. I certainly did enjoy the first half and the last few chapters. A good read, but not Laymon's best work.

I have to agree with the last person. The first few chapters were great. I couldn't put the book down but, once he got to America and met up with Sarah it came to a screeching halt. I had no problem putting the book down for days after that. From what I read on the back cover, I thought I was going to see a great chase from New York to the Wild West. But, no! We see more romance then thrill. It just dragged for me at that point till he decided to start his search for Jack again. I thought great! Here comes the chase! But, again I was slightly bored with another romance. Though I did like her more then Sarah. What I wanted to see was maybe a Chapter or two on how Jack was fairing in America instead of learning about it at the very end. I did enjoy the ending as well.
