Ndo isn t terribly interesting really Indeed the real story is with his father s past Which means I couldn t help feeling that we missed all THE MOST INTERESTING BITS STICKING WITH most interesting bits sticking with rather than stepping back twenty years and following Falco from the beginningAnyway bad marketing awful copywriting and a story that s barely coherent made this a less than satisfying read Toss in that this is the first in the Sackett stories with no love interest whatsoever and you have an almost complete washAnd yes that means this one takes the title of weakest in the series from Sackett Tell was a much better hero and his story was coherent than this one Which is sad because Lando had a great premise following IN A FATHER S FOOTSTEPS FINDING a father s footsteps finding along The Way It Just Felt Like A way It ust felt like a of the much bigger better story that we didn t actually get to see This story of Orlando Lando Sackett His story is brutal and on the wilder side than the Sackett books I ve read up to this pointHis mother dead and his father gone Lando had to fend for himself since an early age His father left Lando with his old friend who was asked to give Lando a proper education This was to be insured by giving his friend a large sack of gold Then his father left and disappearedOf course the money was never spent on Lando but on the man s own son hi Read most of Louis Lamour s books when I was in my late teens and early twenties They are important to me as they were some of the first books that got me into the reading habit For that I shall be forever grateful Another pretty Rlando Sackett survived the horrors of a brutal Mexican prison He survived by using his skills as a boxer and by making three vows The first was to exact revenge on the hired killers who framed him The second was to return to his father And the third was to find.

with the other books in the sackett seriesthe other books in the Sackett series s obvious that there was no birth control in the 1870 s because if I can ust find one Sackett brother we ll be able to field a marching band Not my favorite one Lando s personality was a little vague as was the storyline After finishing I couldn t really tell you much about him other than that s he s big through the shoulders Kind of a break from the others where the Sackett became like a close friend by the time the story was overThe hunting for treasure that they never really did get AND THEN THE REVENGE ON MEN THAT WAS SORT then the revenge on men that was sort confused about why they made him angryit was ust all a little thrown togetherBut Louis sure does a good fight scene In this book it was boxing and he ust writes them so vividly they come to life in my mind While in the Sackett series this book did not really feel like a Sackett story I felt that the main character lacked the wit and keen intuition of previous Sackett characters This was likely due to the fact
