so why would I read the sequal of a book I rated only one star? good question. The unbelievable journey of the heroine continues. I discovered the book is a trilogy, so I have also ordered the third in the series. If you are looking for a good western pick up Louis LaAmour or Elmer Kelton. Don't even't think about Ralph Compton. The last two books in this series were written by Ralph Cotton as Compton passed away.

As the continuation from the first book. It is still a good series. However, it kind of slips down, because the hard kept secret of Danny Duggin is making it obvious. Specially from one who is reckless, to me made no sense.

I read the 1st book and I'm the kinda person that if a sequel comes out I GOTTA read it :P
It was a good continuation of the plot but the longer the story goes on the more cliches you run into. I liked it!

A very interesting book. The first 20 pages did not interest me much, but then after that the book really caught me.

Of course this book was interesting to read as all of his works. I have found very few of his books which were not well written..
