Blood Valley
3 : Savage Guns

by William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone
Sep 1, 2012
6 Hours
Ages 13+
Cotton Pickens made it through fifth grade. That and a tin star were good enough to make him the sheriff in the boomtown of Doubtful, Wyoming. And Doubtful's name is no accident. The saying around town is, If you're a lawman, it's doubtful you'll last a day.

Spoiled, brash King Bragg is going to hang for the murder of three men in a barroom. But King's arrogant father -- and his beautiful sister -- use their powers of persuasion to convince Cotton to look into the shooting. And when Cotton does, he uncovers some disturbing secrets about one Crayfish Ruble, the second biggest rancher in Puma County. Soon, Cotton is surrounded by some people who want to hang King now, some who want to bust him free, and some too busy keeping their stories straight... In a town full of fools and sinners, of men bad and downright evil, a gallows is going up and time is running out. And a young, skinny, undereducated lawman named Cotton Pickens is standing up to a savage storm -- with only one gun on his side...

cotton pickens can't help but love him

I know there are some bad reviews on this one. But I don't really see this as a series but rather as individual stories about the same character. I really like Cotton. This one isn't as funny as the last one but it is still good.

Well done but if you have listened to the series I found myself confused at the storyline.
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Actually, I would've rated this bad if not for graphic audio's great projuction quality- making a bad story enjoyable by making it a not so bad drama.

Other than the down right off-the-beat timeline issue with this book- if you read the previous two, you'd notice this one doesn't fit in anywhere...it cannot be before book 1 since he is already sherif, and it can't be after book 1 since he was no longer sherif by the end of book 1.

That aside, this book's down right ridiculous at many part- with Cotton repeating and contridicting himself again and again- one example is just how long he's had his horse, at one point he said 10 years I believe, and another point later on he said half a dozen years.

I swear, Cotton's getting dummer and dummer every book- I hate to have to see this if it ever get to book 10.

One part in particular that was so bad that I almost quit reading...here the judge just got hung by Crayfish and Cotton's saying that Crayfish was going to go free because the witnesses to the King case were all dead...like...excuse me? You and many in the town just saw him hanging the darn judge in broad daylight, that earlier case is not even the issue anymore as far as this guy's concerned.

And Crayfish going off with Admiral like they were friends, and then got himself hung...that too was down right stupid- dude, you just tried to get his son killed, why would you assume that he's rescuing you?

We were told earlier on in the book that this two were no friend of each other's even before this King case, so that last part was completely out of character.

And hanging the judge...come on...really?!

I can just go on and on about how lousy this story is, but I guess you get the idea already.

It is not even particularly funny like the last book- which has been the saving grace for Cotton up till now.

Whoever played King, thumbs up, great job and probably best performance in this book in my opinion- really getting the emotions across.

i almost didn't download this one after reading the reviews but i was pleasantly surprised by this story. a wild plot and a bunch of interesting well acted characters. As far as the whole timeline issue goes there doesn't appear to be any true continuity between the stories and that's alright with me. I can enjoy them each on there own merits. Cotton seems to just be telling stories to his grandchildren and you know how old stories go with embellishments and all. I think thats why i like about these stories they remind me of being told stories by my grandfather. As long the story is great who cares if the timeline is a little off. Spoiler alert!!!!

The end was wild. I liked the way that Crayfish got his neck stretched by Admiral. He was scum.
