US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington – longtime friends and colleagues – are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there’s more than outlawry to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known as Cage. As the two prisoners form an unlikely partnership, the marshals can’t help but look closer at their own.

When forces beyond the marshals’ control converge on the paddle wheeler they’ve hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice.

Story Review:

Though slow at times, According to Hoyle was a good western, lawman novel. There was good detail in the setting and it provided a great atmosphere. I was a little confused at the start as to who the main characters were, but it worked out quickly.

The gun battles were engaging and the slowly built romances satisfying. Rose had a quick wit and Flynn was surly. Wash seemed easy going and Cage a bit of a mystery at first. Though there were a few inconsistencies I was able to gloss over them for the sake of the story.

The ending left it open for a sequel, but I don’t think that is happening. On the whole, I enjoyed According to Hoyle.

Narration Review:

I enjoyed the narrator’s tone of voice and his accents, while not impeccable, were decent enough to get the right feel for the story. It was a pleasant way to spend some time.
