Part of the series with Wes Stone.
From the cover: Nathan Stone was a legendary gunfighter who did everythinghe could to be a father - while still following his own violent trail or honor. Now Wes Stone, barely eighteen, but full of the hard wisdom of the West, is being drawn into the kind of fight that cost his father his life.
RALPH COMPTON HAS AGAIN WRITTEN A STORY THAT I COULD NOT PUT DOWN. THE WES STONE CHARACTER HAS PICKED UP WHERE HIS FATHER NATHAN STONE LEFT OFF . I HATED TO END THIS BOOK YET HATED TO PUT IT DOWN. I CANT WAIT TO GET THE NEXT IN THE SERIES.

The plot was engrossing enough, but there were so many grammar mistakes and story mistakes (like one line says it's day, then 2 paragraphs later it's night) it looked like it had never been edited, even by the author. This guy is compared to Louis L'Amour on the cover but he doesn't come close. You'll have to overlook the mistakes but, like I said, the plot was engrossing enough. It's just annoying to have so many English mistakes.
