This Billy Bob Holland story is one of Burke's best. His villan,
Wyatt Dixon is truly well-drawn. He is complicated. You hate him one moment and then you read a little more and you have doubts about just how "bad" he is. You keep turning the pages just to find out what he'll do next. Very entertaining.
I found this to be a very well written story. I have knowledge of the area it is placed in and loved how it intergated two separate cultures used some past characters to develop a really good story. I would recommend this book.
