Matt Braun turns the classic elements of tough men and rough land into westerns that ring with authenticity. A native of the West and author of 31 novels, he bases many of his book on historic records. Deadwood draws on accounts of the infamous Butch Cassidy and his gang. The mountains and canyons of Dakota Territory create the perfect hideout for lawless men-Hole-in-the-Wall. It is into this wilderness that Luke Starbuck must ride. A manhunter determined to catch his prey, he knows that he's riding into a trap. He just doesn't know who has set it. Deadwood takes listeners deep into a world of conspiracy and danger, where Luke Starbuck will have to rely on his wits as much as his guns. Richard Ferrone's muscular narration is the perfect fit for a hero who casts a long shadow across the paths of the most deadly outlaws.

"Sometimes you just have to root for the killer. In Matt Braun's tale of justice and revenge, that's exacly what listeners end up doing. An engaging yarn from beginning to end, DEADWOOD follows Luke Starbuck, a private detective and manhunter, on a journey through Wyoming and South Dakota to hunt down of one its more loathsome outlaws. On the way, Starbuck discovers that he is actually the main target of the contract and sets out on a mission of revenge. Narrator Richard Ferrone does a commendable job holding the listener's attention and uses an impressive variety of accents to simulate dialogue, while Braun's descriptions of life in the West capture the imagination. In typical Western style, this story is just simple fun. J.B.B. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
