Description
Itinerant lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch return in the gritty new installment of the New York Times–bestselling series.
 
Appaloosa, the hometown of Territorial Marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but with prosperity comes a slew of new trouble: carpetbaggers, gamblers, migrants, peddlers, drifters, thieves, and whores, all boiling in a cauldron of excess and greed. And there’s a new menace in town: a wealthy, handsome easterner—and the owner of Appaloosa’s new casino—Boston Bill Black. 
           
Boston Bill is flashy and bigger than life. He’s a prankster and a notorious womanizer, and with eight notches on the handle of his Colt, he’s rumored quick on the draw. When he finds himself wanted for a series of murders, he quickly vanishes. Cole and Hitch locate and arrest him, but Boston Bill escapes once again. Another murder sets the duo on his trail, eventually taking them back to Appaloosa—where one woman in particular may, or may not, prove to be the apple of Boston Bill’s eye.

        May 30, 2016
        Chosen by Robert B. Parker’s estate to carry on the author’s work featuring Appaloosa’s police team of Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, Knott creates new plots for Parker’s people and places in his own series. Those who love Wild West outlaw/lawmen books can run right through the pages of Blackjack to the surprise ending. For listeners, however, it’s a slower, more irksome story. Reader Linn voices all the characters in the same low voice with a slight Southwestern twang. But it doesn’t matter—the listener always knows who’s speaking because every line of dialogue is followed by “I said,” “Aly said,” “he said,” “Virgil said,” etc. As these folks generally converse in very short sentences, the repetition in this dialogue-heavy plot might drive listeners insane. A Putnam hardcover.
