Lance Kilkenny’s gun is believed to be the fastest in the West, but once the gunfight is over, he disappears. Most folks don’t even know what he looks like. Some time back, Mort Davis saved Kilkenny’s life after he was shot up. Now Davis needs Kilkenny’s help. He has filed a claim on a water hole near Lost Creek in the live oak country. The district is dominated by two wealthy cattlemen, Webb Steele and Chet Lord, each one claiming for himself the water hole that Davis occupies. Beautiful Nita Riordan owns the local saloon, and between her charms and the feuding ranchers, Lance Kilkenny has his work cut out for him. If he doesn’t watch his step, he’ll pay the debt he owes with his own blood.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A strong case can be made that L’Amour was the most popular American writer of the 20th century…His books embody heroic virtues that seem to matter now more than ever.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “L’Amour is the kind of storyteller who makes the wolves come out of the woods to listen.”


  • “Dynamically narrated…The drama comes alive through Austin native Jim Gough’s engrossing presentation, and L’Amour’s painstaking attention to detail and realism shine through as always, creating a vivid glimpse of struggle and survival on the harsh frontier.”


  • “L’Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heatwave boiling up from a sunbaked paragraph. A master storyteller...for reading under the stars.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lexie | 7/30/2013

    " Yes, I'm a huge Louis L'Amour fan, I own just about every one of his westerns (in book form), and have read each one AT LEAST once, several books 2 or 3 times!! If you have the slightest interest in the wild west, a L'Amour novel will hook you into reading about it!! "

    " An engaging western involving a potential range war in south Texas. L'Amour introduces a "good" gun fighter, Kilkenny, who rides into the fray to help an old friend. Maybe not great literature, but fun nevertheless. This novel should be read before starting "A Man Called Trent", also by L'Amour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Charles | 11/23/2011

    " Kilkenny was one of L'Amour's recurring characters. This is a book about him, one of the fastest of the gunfighters. I'm not overly enamored of the Kilkenny character but still this is a pretty good book. "
