Reviews

-Like the Spenser books, it's a study of Parker's enduring themes: buddy relationships, the weight that honor and responsibility put on a man, the consequences of violence, the way good can shade into bad and vice versa...a melancholy and sometimes moving tale of a lost but fascinating era.---The Seattle Times-Dryly amusing...a conclusion that had to make Parker smile as much as his readers will.---Los Angles Times-[Parker] takes total command of the genre, telling a galloping tale...[a] classic western... magnificent. As always, the writing is bone clean. One of Parker's finest.---Publishers Weekly (starred review)-For...readers with a hankering for the Wild West, including a high-noon shootout and all the accoutrements.---USA Today-Beneath the trappings of this gunfighter novel, Parker really has something to say about the nature of men and women in the Old West. Highly recommended.---Library Journal-As always, [Parker] is a master...his plot gallops to a perfect, almost mythical ending. Like a great gunfighter, Parker makes it look easy.---St. Petersburg Times-If Spenser and Hawk had been around when the West was wild, they'd have talked like Cole and Hitch. Wonderful stuff: notch 51 for Parker.---Kirkus Reviews "Like the Spenser books, it's a study of Parker's enduring themes: buddy relationships, the weight that honor and responsibility put on a man, the consequences of violence, the way good can shade into bad and vice versa...a melancholy and sometimes moving tale of a lost but fascinating era."--The Seattle Times"Dryly amusing...a conclusion that had to make Parker smile as much as his readers will."--Los Angles Times"[Parker] takes total command of the genre, telling a galloping tale...[a] classic western... magnificent.
