Callahan's Legacy Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Callahan's Legacy

Perhaps one too many as the characters from Callahan's Crosstime Saloon meet again to down a few, trade puns and save the world. When alien Mickey Finn and Mary Callahan return from being thrashed by a 3 legged alien bent on destroying the world, Callahan's team kicks in to save the world with a few drinks and some horrible puns. Entertaining but predictable. Not as good as the first.
