When we last saw Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, they had just put things to right in the rough-and-tumble Old West town of Resolution. It's now a year later, and Virgil has only one thing on his mind: Allie French, the woman who stole his heart from their days in Appaloosa. Even though Allie ran off with another man, Virgil is determined to find her, his deputy and partner Everett Hitch at his side.

Making their way across New Mexico and Texas, the pair finally discover Allie in a small-town brothel. Her spirit crushed, Allie joins Everett and Virgil as they head north to start over in Brimstone. But things are not the same between Virgil and Allie; too much has happened, and Virgil can't face what Allie did to survive the year they were apart.

Vowing to change, Allie thinks she has found redemption through the local church and its sanctimonious leader, 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, the two struggle to keep the peace.

    " I found myself most intrigued with the life and struggles of Allie French "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 2/19/2014

    " Quick read - typical Virgil and Everett dialogue. Dry humor. Gun fights. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruce Snell | 2/16/2014

    " typically Robert B. Parker, a tale of male bonding, duty, honor and love. Not quite as good as Resolution, but still a worthy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 2/16/2014

    " Big fan of Spenser novels. Didn't read the first 2 but did enjoy this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 2/13/2014

    " Robert B. Parker does Spencer and Hawk in the old west. Only he calls them Virgil and Everett. Doesn't get any better. I"ll miss Mr. Parker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/11/2014

    " Another one to love. On to the next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 2/6/2014

    " wonderful weekend read. I love those western tales of life in those "Deadwood" or post-Deadwood days - perfect escape. I just loved Virgil and Everett, Allie, Laurel, and Pony. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 1/18/2014

    " Another good Virgil Cole, Everett Hitch book, the 3rd in a 4 volume series. Parker is sparse with his words but gets maximum mileage out of his short sentences and chapters. He was my favorite author. I have switched to James Lee Burke. Hope he feels okay! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maurynne | 1/13/2014

    " This series about the "Old West" really highlights Parker's ongoing exploration of romantic love vs. obsession. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caia | 1/3/2014

    " I love Robert Parker. I just love the tough-guy talk and the sarcasm. This was a great addition to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 12/29/2013

    " How can you not like Virgil and Hitch? Impossible. Half way through the book I watched Appaloosa..liked Viggo and Ed. Can't wait for the next adventure in the wild wild west. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy | 12/7/2013

    " Not as good as the first two in the series, but... still enjoyable. Hitch and Cole are just two macho cowboys... good mindless reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ludwig | 11/20/2013

    " I like Robert Parker's way of writing western. Really like this series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikesawin Sawin | 9/4/2013

    " This is a great book. I guess the theme is like that song, "Sometimes love just aint enough." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debdanz | 1/25/2013

    " The 1st 2 were better than the subsequent 2. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dr. Michael Galvin | 8/14/2012

    " Great interaction between Cole & Hitch but a weaker story line than Resolution and not up to par with Appaloosa. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Westfall | 8/3/2012

    " Another great Virgil Cole, Everett Hitch book. The town-tamers do it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walter Straus | 7/13/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 2/17/2012

    " If you like crime/murder mystery this was a really good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Ashley | 2/5/2012

    " I liked it, but not as well as resolution. It left me wanting to read the next adventure of Virgil and Everett. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ckat22 w. | 12/5/2011

    " Liking this but somewhat saddened that this is the last one with Mr. Parker not being with us anymore and all.

    Having finished it, I enjoyed it. Not the best Cole and Hitch book. Maybe the worst really. Thing is even a bad Parker book still rocks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debdanz | 3/7/2011

    " The 1st 2 were better than the subsequent 2. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 3/3/2011

    " I guess I don't care about these people any more. I don't plan to listen to book #4 in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Sue | 12/2/2010

    " I love Robert B Parker and this western cowboy series is fantastic and funny. Dry wit and not a serious bone in this book. Read them - all four (?) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korynn | 8/7/2010

    " Our protagonist duo go in search of a woman and then settle in a new town as gunhands. The dialogue continues to be sparse and simple and the motivations and politics fairly black and white. Our heroes mete out their brand of violent justice in the end. "
