Well, how about this? What if Robert Parker wrote Westerns? Whoa!! That one's over-the-top, huh? The famous author of the Spenser detective series (remember the TV show "Spenser for Hire"?) has written a Western trilogy (That would be three.), and Sharon King, library assistant, offers this review:
Most recently I have read Robert Parker's Western series Appaloosa, Resolution, and my current read, Brimstone. I don’t normally read Westerns, but since I like this author so much I thought that these had to be good too, and I haven’t been disappointed. The series features two gunmen named Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, who travel to different towns to restore law and order where it has gone awry. In each town, Virgil Cole is hired as the Marshall for that town and Everett Hitch is his deputy. They set out to establish some semblance of law and order and shoot and kill anyone who begs to differ. Virgil and Everett are after the main bad guy in each town, who is the one who is terrorizing all of the residents and trying to take over the town. This series has lots of gunfights, but the real story is one of friendship and unconditional love. In the first book, a woman enters the picture and becomes the love interest for Virgil Cole. Virgil loves Allie unconditionally, but Allie is not faithful to him. She runs away and Virgil and Everett catch up with her in the third book.
