Not up to par compared to previous books i';ve read by him. Was disappointed in it. ( )

Not great, and not what I'd expect from a western. This book is very centered around the temperance movement (banning alcoholic drinks) and the mens' reactions to this. Their reactions are not realistic, and most of the characters are completely flat and forgettable. ( )

This is an odd book. William Johnstone has been dead for quite some time. This is not your normal Western, no matter what the cover looks like. Instead it reads more like a satire of modern day life, though the writing is of dubious quality and the characters are interchangeable and basically non-entities.

If you want a more traditional, and enjoyable, Western read something else not this. ( )

William Johnstone never fails to deliver an entertaining story. Wyoming Slaughter is a fun book, and for the Western fan, one of this years essential reads. ( )

Cotten Picken , the sheriff of Doubtful,Wyoming has a problem. The once quiet town has him caught in the middle of the saloon owners, the ladies houses and Doubtfuls political higharchy. The problem starts when the movers and shakers and the members of the womens temperance society decide to clean up Doubtful. First the saloons go, then the red light district and poor Cotten and his deputy Rusty have to handle this on their own. I enjoyed every minute of this book it was hard to put down. I couldn't wait to see how Cotten was going to get out of the next problem. And the next and the next. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078602805X, Mass Market Paperback)

It was a law Cotton Pickens never asked for and never wanted to enforce. But due to the vigilance of the Women's Temperance Society, and the timidity of their businessmen husbands, the town of Doubtful, Wyoming, is going dry. As of January 1st. No exceptions. No turning back. Doubtful's hell-raisers will not take this lying down, and Sheriff Pickens is fighting bootleggers and vigilantes when the next boot drops. The righteous women push through an even worse law bound to spark an outright insurrection. The world's oldest profession and Doubtful's favorite pastime - dallying with ladies of the evening - is the next vice to be outlawed. With all hell breaking loose, Sheriff Pickens has enemies everywhere he turns. And for a lawman under siege, survival means fast thinking, straight shooting - and breaking a law or two himself...
