"Clever detective work and considerable shooting. It reads lightning fast...Suspenseful."
-- Booklist

Itinerant lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch are back in the saddle with guns blazing in this gritty, intense addition to the New York Times--bestselling series.

After hunting down the notorious desperado Alejandro Vasquez, Territorial Marshal Virgil Cole and Deputy Everett Hitch return him to San Cristóbal to stand trial. No sooner do they remand him into custody than a major bank robbery occurs and the lawmen find themselves tasked with another job: investigating the robbery of the Comstock Bank, recovering the loot, and bringing the criminals to justice.

But when their primary suspect is found severely beaten outside a high-class brothel and turns out to be using a false identity to escape a torrid past, it is Alejandro who becomes the key to their investigation. Cole and Hitch are soon on the trail of the money, two calculating brothers, and the daughter of St. Louis's most prominent millionaire in a Cain and Abel story that brings revenge to a whole new level.

Another fake Parker! The family and agents are squeezing money from a ghost!

This was the most boring western. I have read all the Cole and Hitch novels, but this was not worth my time.

If you are in the mood for a good western, this fits the bill. Once again, the author has done a great job of carrying on Parker's western series featuring glib-talking, fast-shooting lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch. This time they travel to Mexico to rescue a young lady held hostage by a bad guy. Suspenseful and a quick read.
