Summary

Johnstone Country. Guns and money. And sometimes, lawyers.

The long-awaited return of Smoke Jensen's son ignites a powder keg of problems for the town of Big Rock, Colorado. This time, it's personal - and definitely fatal . . .

DARK NIGHT IN BIG ROCK

Smoke Jensen is mighty proud of his son Louis for finishing law school. But he can't help being a little disappointed that Louis isn't returning to the Sugarloaf Ranch. Instead, he's setting up his own law practice in nearby Big Rock - a career choice that turns out to be every bit as dangerous as fending off cattle rustlers. The boy's first case lands him smack in the middle of a heated dispute between two riled-up ranchers over water rights. If Louis can't settle them down, the whole thing could blow up into a bloody range war. Then a scheming con man shows up in town to stir up trouble - and ends up dead. Now Louis has to defend his sister's boyfriend on murder charges. What's worse, the real killer is still out there. And he's ready to slaughter again . . .

Smoke Jensen's son may be a lawyer now. But if there's one thing he learned from his daddy, it's that in places like Big Rock, men live and die by one law alone: the law of the gun . . .

A Dark Night In Big Rock, A sleepy for Smoke.

I liked this book a lot. It was nice to see Deni back on a horse again totting her six gun. The plots were several and it time to switch gears to which one was being covered from chapter to chapter. I felt sorry for poor Brad who always gets captured .

Long and repetitive

The story line was just ok. I love Johnstone books but this one is lacking excitement. It was not up to his usual books.

Narrator has unfortunate vocal skills

Liked the story and characters, have listened to all the books previous. What happened to that narrator, he was great! This narrator sounded like he'd just had larynx surgery. Please don't do that to us again.
