Devil’s Manhunt by L Ron Hubbard Review & Trailer

International Book Awards Winner and AudioFile Best Voice Award Winner

In the Arizona territory, every mountain hides a fortune—and every man fends for himself. Tim Beckdolt is as American as the frontier itself, as rangy and self-reliant as a young Jimmy Stewart. But after spending eight treacherous months digging $175,000 in gold out of Desperation Peak—all he has left is desperation. Two sadistic strangers have taken his gold, and now they want to take his life. He’s on the run—the target of a Devil’s Manhunt. In a time and a place where the only law is the law of survival, Beckdolt will have to live by his wits…or die by the bullet.
In 1932, Hubbard led a mining crew on a six-month West Indies Mineralogical Expedition in Puerto Rico—the first complete survey of the island since it had become an American territory. It was an experience that informs this title with remarkable realism.
Also includes two additional Western tales: Johnny, the Town Tamer, the story of a local swindler who meets his match, and Stranger in Town, in which a drifter confronts a corrupt sheriff hellip and his own dark past.

My review:
These are great audio books. There are more than 175,000 sounds that are available to use. They are unabridged and the voices are from Hollywood actors. I could close my eyes and feel like I was in a movie theater. The story itself is rich with history and I thought that the author did a great job. One example is The Gold Rocker Box that was in the story that was really used. I really liked the action and this is one of the best westerns I have read/ heard in a long time. My favorite part of the book was the glossary at the end. Being in the west with no food and no weapon is not a good thing. The other two stories included Johnny, the Town Tamer and Stranger in Town were also great reads. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
