Robert B. Parker gives his fans the book he always longed to write - a brilliant and evocative novel set against the hard scrabble frontier life of the West, featuring Wyatt Earp.

It is the winter of 1879, and Dodge city has lost its snap. Thirty-one-year-old Wyatt Earp, assistant city marshal, loads his wife and all they own into a wagon, and goes with two of his brothers and their women to Tombstone, Arizona, land of the silver mines. There Earp becomes deputy sheriff, meeting up with the likes of Doc Holliday, Clay Allison and Bat Masterson as well as finding the love of his life, showgirl Josie Marcus. While navigating the constantly shifting alliances of a largely lawless territory, Earp finds himself embroiled in a simmering feud with Johnny Behan, which ultimately erupts in deadly gunfire on a dusty street corner.

    " Strays from his usual path here, both in style and subject matter-- a good read, though! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cliff | 8/2/2010

    " Not worth the time to read. About as exciting as a dime novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 7/25/2010

    " Wyatt I need to see you.

    " The Tombstone epic saga seen from Mr. Parker's perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 5/25/2010

    " Good cowboy story - the Earp brothers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/20/2010

    " Western, more historically-based than the Appaloosa series (but I liked those better). I thought the ending on this one was weak. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 2/9/2010

    " A Western by Parker. Interesting. I like his other stuff better I think but this was still ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart | 6/25/2009

    " Parker's take on the Gunfight at the OK Corral. From what I gather he pretty much nails the historical details but it's not as much fun as some of his other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/28/2009

    " An interesting departure from his detective books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 2/10/2009

    " After reading Appoloosa, looked for another western by Parker. Good telling of the backstory leading up to the gunfight at the OK corral such that the actual gunfight in the book is limited to only a couple of sentences. Good portrayal of the Earp brothers and their loyalty for each other. "
