Cole and Hitch are back in a new Western classic… The guns-for-hire introduced in Robert B. Parker’s Appaloosa are back… When Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch track down the woman who stole Virgil’s heart, they find a dispirited prostitute rather than the innocent beauty she once was. Now they must save her, even if murder is the price of redemption.
When we last saw Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole, they had just restored peace to the rough-and-tumble town of Resolution. Virgil, however, has only one thing on his mind these days: Allie French, the woman who stole his heart in Appaloosa. Even though Allie ran off with another man, Virgil is determined to find her–with Everett’s help. Moving from town to town, the pair finally find Allie in a small-town brothel. Her spirit crushed, Allie joins Everett and Virgil as they relocate to the up-and-coming town of Brimstone, but things are not the same between Virgil and Allie. Vowing to change, Allie thinks she has found redemption through the town’s church and its sanctimonious priest, Brother Percival. Given their reputations as guns for hire, Everett and Virgil are able to secure positions as the town’s deputies. But Brother Percival stirs up trouble at the local saloons, and as the violence escalates into murder, Virgil and Everett struggle to keep the peace.
Robert B. Parker was the author of seventy books, including the legendary Spenser detective series, the novels featuring Police Chief Jesse Stone, and the acclaimed Virgil Cole–Everett Hitch westerns, as well as the Sunny Randall novels. Winner of the Mystery Writers… More about Robert B. Parker
