Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
