Gritty recounting of the blood-spattered career of the legendary outlaw. Hansen's emphasis is on James' extended family, his relatively placid domestic life, and his ultimate betrayal by one of the few people he trusted. The book then traces the lives of the people who planned, promoted, and executed the murder. Involving and flavorful. The author obviously spent a great deal of time researching both the man and the violent times in which he lived. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
