The fighter with no memory. ( )

Grading this on a L'Amour Curve, I can't give it more than three stars. This one is noticeably less polished than other titles I've read from the master storyteller. The prose feels like a first draft that never got a copyedit; the ending is abrupt even for L'Amour; nothing seems as fleshed out as it ought to be, including the amnesia element of the plot (which I was looking forward to; a Western Jason Bourne? what could be more entertaining?). And while I've learned to expect atrocious character names from this writer, Lyman Manly seems like a new low. I was left wondering if this was a long-lost draft discovered later in the author's career and never revised or edited.

I enjoyed the story because I have a hard time not enjoying a Western. But this is not one I'd start with if you're new to the genre or to the author. ( )

This remains one of my favorite L'Amour stories, about a man with amnesia, trying to find out who he is before those who do know his identity find him, and kill him. Not formula, good story. ( )

Product Description In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his memory. All he knew for certain was that someone wanted him deadand that he had better learn why. But everywhere he turned there seemed to be more questions—or people too willing to hide the truth behind a smoke screen of lies. He had only the name he had been told was his own, his mysterious skill with a gun, and a link to a half million dollars’ worth of buried gold as evidence of his past life. Was the treasure his? Was he a thief? A killer? He didn’t have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn’t know about himself, others did—and if he didn’t unlock the secret of his past, he wasn’t going to have much of a future. From the Inside Flap In one swift moment, a fall wiped away his past.  Now he was up and running for his life--into a tangle of lies and deceit.  His memory lost, the man had only a name and a few clues.  Where did his skill with a gun come from?  What was the link between his past life and half a million dollars' worth of buried gold?  He didn't have the answers, but he needed them soon.  Because what he still didn't know about himself, others did--including the men who wanted him dead.

A bit of a departure from many of Louis L'Amour's stories with the title character lying on the ground in some town after surviving a gunshot that skimmed his head causing amnesia. Soon in the story he figures he MAY be someone called Ruble Noon who is known as someone who should not be trifled with. Over time, the main character finds even though he can't consciously remember who he is, where he came from and other details of his life and mission, his muscle memory and instincts are with him. Through many incidents, the main character comes closer to discovering who he actually is and by his instincts, lightning quick reactions and cunning eludes many people who want to kill him. In fact he manages to turn the tables on them and even shows compassion when none was expected. My only trouble with the story is that close to the end there seems to be more written than necessary causing the story to slow down and drag out instead of the typical flow Louis L'Amour's stories normally have. It's a trouble but a very tiny trouble. Other than that, it's an engaging story with more twists and turns than the average L'Amour novel. ( )
