In The Sackett Brand, Louis L'Amour spins the story of a courageous man who must face overwhelming odds to track down a killer. Tell Sackett and his bride, Ange, came to Arizona to build a home and start a family. But on Black Mesa something goes terribly wrong. Tell is ambushed and badly injured. When he finally manages to drag himself back to where he left Ange, she is gone. Desperate, cold, hungry, and with no way to defend himself, Tell is stalked like a wounded animal. Hiding from his attackers, his rage and frustration mounting, he tries to figure out who the men are, why they are trying to kill him, and what has happened to his wife. Discovering the truth will be risky. And when he finally does, it will be their turn to run.

"William Tell Sackett is shot off the edge of a cliff without warning, and when he survives his long fall into a river, he discovers that his outfit and wife, Ange, have disappeared. For a L'Amour tale, this story of murderous treachery is surprisingly dark. David Strathairn's Tell is deeply restrained, with the smoldering emotions he speaks of very well-banked indeed; listeners must supply much of the emotional pain Tell describes as Strathairn's narration does little to portray it. Yet L'Amour's characters are not given to sentimentality. As the story progresses, Tell's level voice becomes more and more believable, especially when it's joined by other distinctive characters who help him seek justice. J.C.G.
