“Law enforcement in Appaloosa had once been Virgil Cole and me. Now there was a chief of police and twelve policemen. Our third day back in town, the chief invited us to the office for a talk.”

The new chief is Amos Callico, a tall, fat man in a derby hat, wearing a star on his vest and a big pearl-handled Colt inside his coat. An ambitious man with his eye on the governorship—and perhaps the presidency—he wants Cole and Hitch on his side. But they can’t be bought, which upsets him mightily.

When Callico begins shaking down local merchants for protection money, those who don’t want to play along seek the help of Cole and Hitch. When Cole is forced to fire on the trigger-happy son of politically connected landowner General Horatio Laird, Callico sees his dream begin to crumble. The guns for hire are thorns in the side of the power-hungry chief, and he’ll use any excuse to take them out. There will be a showdown—but who’ll be left standing?

    " So sad this book is the last Cole and Hitch book Parker wrote before his untimely death. Another great read. "

    " I hate to speak ill of the dead, but this posthumous western from Robert Parker is greatly tiresome. Like others in the last few years, each paragraph in this is one sentence. These guys don't seem to be able to speak more than four or five words at a time. Consequently, I finished this in nearly record time. The story revisits gun-slinging saddle pals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch as they try to once again bring justice to the frontier town of Appaloosa. And you really don't care if they do or not . . . "

    " As always, Robert B. Parker does dialogue like no one else. "

    " A low-grade Parker. Too many "we are pretty good." "Yep, we are pretty good" conversations. "
