Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before he brilliantly traversed the gritty landscapes of underworld Detroit and Miami, the incomparable Elmore Leonard wrote breathtaking adventures set in America's nineteenth-century western frontier — elevating a popular genre with his now-trademark twisting plots, rich characterizations, and scalpel-sharp dialogue.

There is a moment when obsession, rage, and destiny come together at the end of a shotgun barrel — when wrongs, actual or perceived, are addressed with violence, and the awesome power of life or death rests in a trigger finger. In seven magnificent stories of sins, crimes, conscience, and savage retribution, the New York Times-bestselling master carries us back to an untamed time and place where a simple transgression most often proved fatal...and the only true justice lived in the hands of the gunman.

Synopsis:

America's premier storyteller presents seven classic tales of the Old West in this entry of his four-book collection.

Synopsis:

Staring down the barrel of a shotgun isn't easy. But being the man with his finger on the trigger can be just as hard. In a land of outlaws, doing what's right gets harder and harder. MOMENT OF VENGEANCE is comprised of seven powerful stories of men doing just that - choosing to do the right thing no matter what the cost might be. From the author who has influenced more writers than any other, these are the stories that launched his phenomenal career. In these early western stories, Leonard demonstrates the superb talent for language and gripping narrative that have made him one of the most acclaimed and influential writers of our time.
