Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best work of its kind. Throbs with life upon a hostile frontier…doubly thrilling as Mr. Edmonds sets it down, touched with local color, lively with dialogue, bright with suspense.” New York Times

Surprisingly engaging

I hesitated with this novel. It seemed like the type of story that I would find dull, but honestly it gripped me from the start and never let up. For an older novel it came across much more exciting than I expected. Mark Bramhall narrated this splendidly...Well done Blackstone!!!
