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.

    Mr. Parkers Great western series

    I and manyyyyyyy others often talk about Mr Parkers lawmen , we anxiously await the new arrivals and admittedly re-read some, the stories flow, nice and easy, if I and friends want books or stories about rocket science we would buy them, the idea to us is to enjoy the story, with this series we relish the voyage, thank you and please keep them coming.I recently purchased the newest book, knowing I was going to have two procedures on my knee, what I looked forward to is the book which I had saved for my recovery.

    Ed Harris and Viggo Mortenson need to ride again!

    The third in Parker's series starring Cole and Hitch, the laconic old West town-taming duo, cries for Ed Harris, who turned the first in the series into an excellent oater, starring himself and Viggo Mortenson, to climb back on those horses and get the next two filmed!
    After reading the first book and seeing the movie, I could just picture Harris and Mortenson as I read the words and actions Parker put in their mouths!
    Parker pens worthy successors to Elmore Leonard's western genre!
    Fine reading!

    I Also Recommend:

    Parker rides again!

    Look, Parker writes a book in one style with gruff dialog, subtle humor and muscular description. I find his books emminently readable. If you like Parker's books, you love this one.
    If you've never read a Parker, or haven't read one recently, then get started on this author. He is a classic of American detective and adventure literature. His forty or so books will give you much pleasure and enjoyment.

    Excellent western with the usual RBP cast of characters

    Last summer, I had the good fortune to meet Robert B. Parker at a book signing in Dallas. He told us that Brimstone would be the last off-genre book in his western series featuring Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch. Preceeded by Appaloosa (excellently adapted to film) and Resolution, Brimstone continues the duos' gunslinging pursuits amongst the usual cast of characters that allows us to follow moral conflict in the wild west: corrupt preachers, helpful prostitutes, bad guy gunslingers who flip to defend the safety of violated women. One of the most consistent contemporary writers, Mr. Parker delivers as always with quick wit, sparse dialogue,and a driving narrative that is hard to put down. Excellent summer reading for a day at the beach.
