Elmore Leonard's Western novels stand as some of the most vivid writing of his career. With all of his trademark sharp dialogue and set against a beautifully evoked landscape, this is a classic work that captures the wild and glorious spirit of the American West.Hide synopsis

Valdez is a part-time constable and a full time shotgun rider on the stage. He wears a suit, starched collar, and tie. People know him to be mild mannered, and they call him Bob. However, ten years ago he was chief scout for the army chasing Apaches all over the southwest, and was called Roberto. An innocent man is killed by mistake by Valdez, and leaves behind a very pregnant indian wife. Valdez goes to the man responsible for the killing, Mr. Tanner, and asks for $500 for the woman. He not only is turned down, he is beat up and tied to a couple of tree limbs, like a cross, and tries to hobble 10 miles to a friends house for help dragging the one limb, with the other limb tied to his extended arms. When he recovers from his ordeal, he goes after Tanner (who turns out to be a murderer among other things.) Tanner has over 25 fighting men working for him, and Valdez goes up against the whole crew. Valdez sends Tanner a message. "Valdez is coming." There are several twists , turns, and surprises. A great story.
