Parker shows his western prowess once again as we continue our time in the lives of Cole and Hitch. It's another trying tale, in another dusty coming of age town. An old character returns, and while you expect more of the same, that's not the case. This new town has new characters, with new goals and ambitions, presenting new issues for Cole and Hitch in the old west. It moves quick, with many climatic points, although the ending is fairly predictable. Never the less, it's a great read, but do yourself a favor and read Appaloosa and Resolution before you open Brimstone.

The first in this western series by Robert Parker was Appalosa. This was made into a movie with excelletn casting. The second book, Resolution,, continued the plot in another town. This book is a further continuation, and somewhat of a resolution of the relationship betwen Virgil Cole and his loved one. I hope they make movies of the latest two. These are westerns in the "Gunsmoke" genre. A good read.

    Brimstone - more of the same

    Brimstone, like several of Robert Parker's other books - regardless of which series - was rather disappointing. While consistent in terms of the characters presented, the interaction between those characters have become repetitious. Yes, the themes of honor, friendship, the relationship between the sexes, faithfulness, and dealing with infidelity are the makings of a great story. But as repeated story lines in Brimstone or the Jesse Stone novels or for Spenser, they are beocming quite boring. So for those who want more of the same, almost exactly the same, then this will be a satisfying book. But for others, it may be time to give up on this author.
