Review:

Ms. Monahan shows us the glitz and grits of old-time Tombstone. What a book! What a read! (True West Magazine) --True West Magazine

Literary voyeurs will love this one. It features everything from whiskey to whores, faro to fisticuffs, and hedonism to homicide. This was the Old West of the late 1800s, untouched and untamed, as told through memoirs and eyewitness recollections of the men and women who lived the era. Although the 176 pages of scandal, sex, sin and saloons discuss events that took place more than a century ago, The Wicked West: Boozers, Cruisers, Gamblers, and More offers enough detail to paint a vivid picture. You can almost hear your own spurs clank as you enter one of these rowdy saloons and become part of this history. --Tucson Weekly
