    When I started this book I figured I'd enjoy it as I had the few other Louis L'Amour books I have read I didn't expect to be trying to solve the murder myself and getting worried anytime a certain character came into the picture At first I wasn't sure who was the murderer as there were so many possibilities but it turned out that my first hunch was correctBorden Chantry was a great marshall and I wouldn't mind living in a town where he was the lawMy all time favorite part though was the judge's talk with the banker That young man is all that stands between us and savagery He's the thin line of protection and when he walks out there on the street his life is on the line every minute he wears that badge Laws are made to free people not to bind them–if they are the proper laws They tell each of us what he may do without transgressing on the eual liberty of any other manAs with the other books by this author that I've read there is swearing mostly using the d word

    A historical western murder mystery sounded really good and I wanted to snatch up Louis L'amour Audio stories so it was a win winBorden Chantry the young town sheriff comes back from bringing in a horse thief only to have a dead body on his hands Everyone thinks the guy is just one of the many drunken cowboy shootings that occur on any given night but Chantry isn't convinced when little details don't jiveI enjoyed following along as Chantry whom I connected with from the first sifted through the clues to learn who the dead guy was why he came to their town and why he was killed Borden is strong and capable but he's also vulnerable He feels the pressure of providing for his wife and son after losing his stock from bad luck and weather so that he had to take the town marshal position and knowing that his wife wants to move back east because she doesn't like this rough life while this is what he knows loves and is very good at He also feels the pressure of replacing a good man who was a top notch lawman and knowing that a few doubt he's the right man for the jobThere is an interesting philosophical discussion between the judge and the town banker about the necessity of a strong man who wears a gun like Chantry knowing when and when not to use it putting his life on the line so that others can live uietly safely and at peace that felt poignant to me in the face of our own day when its very tough to be a good lawmanwoman as wellThe murder mystery was a cunning one since the dead man is unknown around the area and there is little on him to give Chantry clues Many people he talks to know than they will say and he can tell The killer thinks Chantry is getting closer than he is so he has his own near death experiences including the hiring of a paid killer to hunt Chantry down He doesn't give up and I was rooting for him when things got pretty grittyThe blend of authentic western and the murder mystery were great This is definitely a western in flavor and I enjoyed feeling right there in the moment with Chantry the town and the surrounding western frontier areaThe narrator was a first time for me with Erik Singer I found parts really good and parts moderately good I liked how he told a story and found his sense of tone and pace were really good It was some of the western accents that felt overdone Sometimes it was just right or at least in my opinion while at others it sounded thick and ponderous so I was distracted I think I got used to his way of voicing the western accent after a time because the distractedness was gone by the end of the bookAll in all I enjoyed this book and am keen to listen to of Louis L'amour's westerns particularly if they include a mystery like Borden Chantry My thanks to Penguin Random House Audio for the opportunity to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review

    Louis Lamour adds 2 things to all his westerns on top of being a fine story teller who writes in an economic easily read script of courseHe likes to spend time with historic characters places and events from those times; andHe always like to make a suitably moral message which he drums in just enough to dig in under your sub consciousSo here we find little cameos for Billy the Kid Pat Garret Buffalo Bill and others from the East; the town of Durango in Colorado and a famous old hotel or two Along with the True Meaning and Value of the Law All of which adds just enough flavour and colour to put substance to what is a very nice little murder mystery and a very satisfyingly self effacing hero Good for an hour or two's feet up reading

    Second book in the Chantry series follows you guessed it the story of Borden ChantryHe used to be a rancher but a frost wiped out his herd and so he is now a Sherriff in a small townWith his wife and a young son they are making it work even though she doesn’t approve of his profession because she thinks it’s too dangerousOne morning he finds a dead man in front of a saloon and something doesn’t seem right As he investigates deeper he finds out that other seemingly unconnected killings start to add up to a pattern and he won’t let it go until he finds out who is behind it or gets himself killed in the processDefinitely worth your time The story was well nuanced and thought out It holds you until the very end

    Louis L'Amour is a ok book the book at first is hard to get into but once you read of it you understand it This book is filled with a western style noble This book is filled with adventure and a little bit of mystery The main characteris Chantry he is a cowboyheriff He is young lean rugged and he has buried a few men in his cow town Then one dark night a mysterious man was shot Then five murders later Chantry faced one of the hardest things in his life Characters I enjoyed reading this book as Chantry goes through his murder case I also enjoyed some of the other characters like a lot of of the characters their are ropers and good ol country boys in it It seems like a lot of the stuff in this book seems like a lot of of it the things in the books seems like it has a lot of real life things like some of the gun fights outside of bars and some of the little fights that they had out in the country Plot The summary of the book has a very western blot The marshals name was borden chantry Yung lean rugged and he has buried a few men in his two bit cowtown Every single one was killed in a fair fight Then one dark grim day a mysterious gunman was shot in cold blood I enjoyed the events in the book the only thing i would change is make another book that leads up to the end of this one ` Conflict The major conflict is one night when a man died from someone shooting him and it wasn't regular for someone to be shot in this small town Everyone is worried about getting hurt or shot because they didn't know what happened to this guy that is the main conflict in the book What I learned something that I learned in this book is it doesn't matter how hard it gets don't ever give up Especially when your hometown loves you and loves what you do Something else I learned is that dont blame someone for something that they didn't do

    Either you like traditional westerns or you don't They reflect their time racist patronizing at best towards Native Americans and women are almost always relegated to he kitchen They focus on so called tough manly adventures with horses and guns Totally non pc and I completely understand why people hate reading them But we all read stuff that is not pc and this is my vice If you DO like westerns and you don't already know L'Amour then you are doing it wrong and are in for a treat This is not a bad place to start It is only slightly related to L'Amour's Sackett saga many many books about a single extended frontier family and you don't have to know anything about those books to understand this one it does help to know that there IS a Sacket saga thoughBorden Chantry is a failed cattle rancher forced to become the town sheriff to earn enough money to feed his family It isn't a job he wanted but its one he is really good at But his uiet little town suddenly is plagued with multiple murders and Sheriff Chantry has no clue how to figure out who the culprit isSo he starts to investigate and the killer's attention appears to turn on Chantry So in the end what we have is a very fine murder mystery disguised as a western Well doneNote From the dates read info it looks like it took me a long time to read this Nope I read about 23 in a cabin in the Ozarksbut the book belong to the cabin So I read a couple of books and then got my hands on my own copy and finished it in an hour or so Its a uick read
