Brimstone | [Robert B. Parker]

Brimstone

When we last saw Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, they had just put things to right in the rough-and-tumble Old West town of Resolution. It's now a year later, and Virgil has only one thing on his mind: Allie French, the woman who stole his heart from their days in Appaloosa. Even though Allie ran off with another man, Virgil is determined to find her, his deputy and partner Everett Hitch at his side.

Publisher's Summary

When we last saw Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, they had just put things to right in the rough-and-tumble Old West town of Resolution. It's now a year later, and Virgil has only one thing on his mind: Allie French, the woman who stole his heart from their days in Appaloosa. Even though Allie ran off with another man, Virgil is determined to find her, his deputy and partner Everett Hitch at his side.

Making their way across New Mexico and Texas, the pair finally discover Allie in a small-town brothel. Her spirit crushed, Allie joins Everett and Virgil as they head north to start over in Brimstone. But things are not the same between Virgil and Allie; too much has happened, and Virgil can't face what Allie did to survive the year they were apart.

Vowing to change, Allie thinks she has found redemption through the local church and its sanctimonious leader, Brother Percival. Given their reputations as guns for hire, Everett and Virgil are able to secure positions as the town's deputies. But Brother Percival stirs up trouble at the local saloons, and as the violence escalates into murder, the two struggle to keep the peace.

    "Brimstone"

    Just a fantastic listen..particularly if you have read either or both of the two previous books of the trilogy (Appaloosa and/or Redemption)..I saw the movie starring Ed Harris which was great ..the narration here and plot are the best of the series..I just wish Parker would write more about these compelling characters..if you like action and very believable westerns you won't be disappointed

    "Perfect Story; Perfect Narration: You Will Love It"

    This is third book in the Virgil Cole/ Everette Hitch series. Robert Party only wrote one more of these before he died. Strongly encourage listening to the series of 4 in order AND encourage listening to them rather than reading them. Titus Welliver narrates all four - his narration is letter perfect which is critical because the dialogue is the awesome. The stories and characters are fascinating, but the dialogue is what grips you. That is lost in the novels written after Parker died. Also, Welliver is not the narrator of any other books in the Virgil & Hitch series
