Parker, the author of more than 40 novels and an Edgar Awards Grand Master, returns with this richly imagined novel of the Old West. Interim lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch square off with Randall Bragg, an evil adversary, in the dusty town of Appaloosa.
From the Publisher:
The New York Times bestselling Western from Robert B. Parker || Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole are lawmen and friends who share the brutal hardships of an emerging West. But the courage that has defined them is challenged by a man without conscience or remorse. Now, Hitch and Cole have followed him to the small town of Appaloosa. || What follows is a dance of wills where villains are cast in shades of grey, where heroes hide in the blackest shadows, where women can betray with frightening ease, and where Hitch and Cole will discover the price of responsibility, honor, and loyalty in the Old West. ||
Annotation:
Taking a break from his popular Spenser series, Robert B. Parker exchanges the streets of present-day Boston for the dusty trails of a 19th-century mining town in this hard-bitten tale of the Wild West. Virgil Cole is the new marshal in Appaloosa, and he and his deputy, Everett Hitch, are tasked with dealing out justice to rancher Randall Bragg, a notorious thief of both supplies and women who is responsible for the shooting deaths of the town's previous lawmen.
Author Bio
Robert B. Parker
Robert B. Parker is best known for his mystery novels featuring Private Detective Spenser. While investigating homicides and tracking down serial killers, Detective Spenser travels throughout Boston and the surrounding areas in search of answers. Not surprisingly, Robert Parker spent most of his life in New England. In 1954, Parker graduated from Colby College in Maine. In 1957 he received his PhD degree in English from Boston University, studying detective fiction. In addition to writing mystery novels, Parker worked as an Army radioman, a technical and advertising writer, and a college English teacher. His Spenser character has been adopted for the big and small screens, and Parker himself started an independent film-production company with his wife. Critically and commercially successful, Parker was named a Grand Master by the Edgar Awards in 2002. He died in 2010 at the age of 77.
