Lance Kilkenny has a debt to pay, and he isn’t about to let the friend who saved his life go down in a range war. But when Kilkenny tries to stop the fighting, he finds there’s more at stake than land or wire. Whoever is stirring up trouble has big ideas for the Live Oak country—and an army of hired guns to back them up. Nita Riordan, the beautiful and fiery owner of the Apple Canyon Saloon, warns Lance that the mysterious man orchestrating the conflict wants him dead. Lance realizes that if he doesn’t watch his step, he’ll pay the debt he owes with his own blood.
I read this book not all that long ago. Actually, this author is what got me into my current reading addiction. I do LOVE me some Louis L'Amour. I really LOVED this book. The action and suspense was at a high through the whole book. There are a couple of little twists and turns in it and you never would have guessed who the "bad guy" turns out to be.
If you've never read a Louis L'Amour book give this one a try. I was hooked and didn't put it down until I finished it. I give this one 5 out of 5.
