Resolution | [Robert B. Parker]

Resolution

After the bloody confrontation in Appaloosa, Everett Hitch heads into the afternoon sun and ends up in Resolution, an Old West town so new the dust has yet to settle. It's the kind of town that doesn't have much in the way of commerce, except for a handful of saloons and some houses of ill repute.

Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author's richly imagined work of historical fiction: a powerful tale of the Old West from the acknowledged master of crime fiction.

"I had an eight-gauge shotgun that I'd taken with me when I left Wells Fargo. It didn't take too long for things to develop. I sat in the tall lookout chair in the back of the saloon with the shotgun in my lap for two peaceful nights. On my third night it was different. I could almost smell trouble beginning to cook."

After the bloody confrontation in Appaloosa, Everett Hitch heads into the afternoon sun and ends up in Resolution, an Old West town so new the dust has yet to settle. It's the kind of town that doesn't have much in the way of commerce, except for a handful of saloons and some houses of ill repute.

Hitch takes a job as a lookout at Amos Wolfson's Blackfoot Saloon and quickly establishes his position as protector of the ladies who work the back rooms - as well as a man unafraid to stand up to the enforcer sent down from the O'Malley copper mine.

Though Hitch makes short work of hired gun Koy Wickman, tensions continue to mount, so that even the self-assured Hitch is relieved by the arrival in town of his friend, Virgil Cole. When greedy mine owner Eamon O'Malley threatens the loose coalition of local ranchers and starts buying up Resolution's few businesses, Hitch and Cole find themselves in the middle of a makeshift war between O'Malley's men and the ranchers.

In a place where law and order don't exist, Hitch and Cole must make their own, guided by their sense of duty, honor, and friendship.

    "Rootin, Tootin, Shootin!"

    A real old time gunslinger story with plenty of goodies, baddies, saloon girls, whiskey and, above all, the dry quip. Uh huh! Yep! There were many "I said" followed by "He Said" statements which should have been edited out as they are obvious from the character voices but overall it is a good narration. Light and enjoyable.

    ""He said" too much"

    Within the first few minutes of this audio book the author said, "He said" so many times it took away from the story line - My gosh it was irritating... it got to a point where I was turned off from the rest of the book - what a waste of money....

    "It may be a good read, but it's a lousy listen"

    I downloaded this book for my husband who likes all things western. We couldn't get past the first chapter. The dialogue is short and the narrator, (rather than assuming we understand who's speaking) insists on letting us know who just said the last 2 words. In a long spate of dialogue, it's just plain annoying. Perhaps the book would be better served if it was dramatized. I will NOT be reading the next book in the trilogy.
