Revue de presse

“The greatest crime writer of our time, perhaps ever!” (The New York Times Book Review)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Phil Sundeen thinks Deputy Sheriff Kirby Frye is just a green local kid with a tin badge. And when the wealthy cattle baron's men drag two prisoners from Frye's jail and hang them from a high tree, there's nothing the untried young lawman can do about it. But Kirby's got more grit than Sundeen and his hired muscles bargained for. They can beat the boy and humilate him, but they can't make him forget the jog he has sworn to do. The cattleman has money, fear, and guns on his side, but Kirby Frye's the law in this godforsaken corner of the Arizona Territories. And he'll drag Sundeen and his killers straight to hell himself to prove it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Leonard western. 22 septembre 2004
Par E. S Winskill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
In the course of the last month, I've become a big fan of Elmore Leonard's Westerns. I'm new to the Western, late in the game. After a few L'Amour's, a friend put me on to Leonard. He's the very top of the genre, in my view. The dialogue and the action tell the story and make the points about toughness and character, not the sentimental interior thought process of the hero, so common in this genre; at least what I've seen thus far.

Kirby Frye is young and green (as a deputy), but he stands up to the townsmen and Phil Sundeen, the bad cattle baron, much to their surprise. He reminds me a lot of the implacable Roberto Valdez in "Valdez is Coming" (I think Leonard's greatest Western), and there are similar qualities to the story. But this is early Leonard (1954), and he only gets better as time goes on.

We again meet the scoundrel Sundeen and see his fate in Gunsights, a much later book (1979).

It's going to be hard to go back to other Western authors having been introduced to Elmore Leonard this early on!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic Leonard Western 26 juillet 2012
Par now what - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Elmore Leonard is a very good writer who happens to have chosen crime fiction and westerns as his chosen area.

In this book everything comes together. The plot is good, with enough twists and suprises to keep it interesting. The characters are well-conceived and well-drawn, all three-dimensional and believable.

The main character is a real study--a young man with courage and wisdom beyond his years, but still conscious of his own short-comings and still able to feel intimidated by older men in certain situations. The plot keeps moving forward, but the book is as much character-driven as plot-driven, and at key points the plot serves to illuminate some aspect of character.

The dialog is perfect, and so are the descriptions: you can hear the conversations, see the scenes and the places, and almost feel the dust of the trail or the cold night wind. You watch the main character grow, mature and develop before your eyes, in the midst of continuous action. It's a great read.

Amazingly, this novel was written when Leonard was still a young man himself--in his twenties--but it feels like the product of a mature writer.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's time to discover Elmore Leonard's western past 26 juin 2009
Par Benjamin Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I enjoy taking a break from my more usual Louis L'Amour westerns because, let's face it, they do tend to be somewhat formula driven. In this book, Mr Leonard includes some of those classic western features: a green lawman, an evil cattle barron and his henchmen, and ultimately the showdown between the two. But other than that this book, like the other 3 Elmore Leonard westerns I've read, doesn't follow traditional formulas all that much.

The premise is that the town of Randado has decided it doesn't need to wait for the formal legal system of the larger town many miles away so they take action on their own. They appoint their own judge and jury and proceed to drag two Mexicans from their jail cell and hang them. When the deputy sheriff returns, he must confront those that behaved illegally. Most of the novel is the resulting chase, trying to bring the bad guys to justice. I know that sounds pretty much like a formula western novel but it is Mr Leonard's style that makes the difference. His characters are not all black or white but rather colorful, filled with doubts of what course of action to take. In short, they are more "real" than one often finds in the western genre. The plot isn't exactly straight-forward and therefore is not so predictable.

I'll continue to recommend Elmore Leonard's western novels to those who like westerns or those that just like a good story that won't take hours and hours to complete.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GREAT CHARACTER WINS AGAIN!!! 26 août 2002
Par Mac Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Kirby Frye is a young Deputy Sheriff but he has a lot of guts. Men are dragged from his jail and hanged while he is out of town. When he goes after the men who did it they humiliate him. The second time he goes after them they take off his shoes and make him walk out of town. THAT WAS A MISTAKE!!! Phil Sundeen has all the men, power and money and he thinks Frye will keep on going. Sundeen has always done what ever he wanted to do, but that is about to come to an end. He uses his own tough men plus a hired gun but to no avail. The story is about Fryes tracking the men responsible and has a lot of action in it. It shows that Frye is human and can make mistakes. I liked the character of Dandy Jim. A quick read, very good western that will hold your attention.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An experience in early Elmore Leonard 2 octobre 2013
Par Geoffrey Hild - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Back when E. L. wrote this, maybe these weren't stock characters, and maybe this wasn't considered a thin plot. What brought it up to 4 stars were his insights on the roughly thirty year period we think of as the "Old West." With a few brush strokes he depicts the interrelationships of Anglos, Hispanics, and Native Americans. And he shows what kind of men it took to enforce law and order thinly spread over vast stretches of semi-settled land.
