together again.
He lay sprawled upon the concrete pavement of the alley in the darkening stain of his own blood, a man I had never seen before, a man with the face of an Apache warrior, struck down from behind and stabbed repeatedly in the back as he lay there.

I'll say one thing for John Toomey: when he loaded that Bisley Colt for the last time, it was really loaded.

THE BROKEN GUN


Begin with the massacre of 27 innocent men.  Follow it with two brutal murders almost 90 years later.  Add two curious, hard-bitten verterans of guerrilla fighting, and a beautiful, terror-stricken girl.

Mix with a pack of vicious killers, who would have been more than a match for the most notorious gunmen of the old West, and you have Louis L'Amour blistering novel of action and adventure in the new West.

LOUIS L'AMOUR
Our foremost storyteller of the authentic West, L'Amour has thrilled a nation by bringing to vivid life the brave men and women who settled the American frontier.  There are now over 140 million of his books in print around the world.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
