A lazy evening wind bends the sage as it passes. A lone coyote greets the dusk with a plaintive howl. Suddenly, the nearby canyon rings with the sound of echoing gunfire. There's been trouble for some time now, even before the stranger rode in. Cattle are disappearing. Good men have been killed.

Aroused by the distant thunder of rifles, the few riders that are loyal to the lady break for their horses. A stranger mounts his horse too, and becomes one of the riders heading toward the sound of the guns. Beliefs and passions become intertwined with betrayal and violence in this classic adventure tale.

    " I don't think I've ever read any "classic" western fiction, so this was an experiment. It was actually pretty enjoyable. I mean, there weren't a lot of surprises, and it wasn't exactly PC, but it was diverting. I can see the appeal, even though I probably won't be reading any more of Grey's work. "

    " I'm surprised at all the great reviews this book is getting. I had to stretch quite a bit to give it two stars. I gave it two stars only because some of the action was exciting, and Grey did get me to care about Lassiter and his quest for vengeance. However, I'm being generous. The story telling was pedestrian at best. The dialogue was so ridiculously melodramatic, it was all I could do to keep reading. The plot was filled with painfully obvious "mysteries" and fabulous coincidences that were painful to read. Simply not believable, nor well crafted enough to be called good literature. If all you want is a mindless western shoot-em-up (with a strange overwrought hatred of Mormons, by the way,) then this could be the book for you. That said, I'd suggest The Border Trilogy or The Oxbow Incident, if you want to read a western with some literary meat on its bones. "

    " My special topics lit class this semester is "representation of mormons in literature and film." This was the first book we read and is was definately anti-mormon. Having said that, it was really entertaining if not a little frustrating. "

    " This is a great book. I could almost smell the sage and see the place. I see why it has lasted. "
