"George Guidall flawlessly delivers accurate and consistent characterizations of lawmen and outlaws in Lancer's post-Civil War drama, which is part of the Golden Spike Trilogy. Black Creek, Kansas, attracts tinhorn gamblers, prospectors, whores, thieves, and other assorted human vultures. Bounty hunter Dane Bowman is lightning fast with a gun and tough as nails, as is murderous train robber Harvey Kidd. Guidall helps build the tension and allows listeners to feel the deadly personal danger that Bowman and others live with. Like a quick-change artist, Guidall switches from one voice to another, capturing both male and female characters equally well. Little-used words like "palaver" don't mar his smooth narration. Listeners will enjoy this outstanding presentation. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
