When we last saw Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole, they had just restored peace to the rough-and-tumble town of Resolution. Virgil, however, has only one thing on his mind these days: Allie French, the woman who stole his heart in Appaloosa. Even though Allie ran off with another man, Virgil is determined to find her-with Everett's help. Moving from town to town, the pair finally find Allie in a small-town brothel. Her spirit crushed, Allie joins Everett and Virgil as they relocate to the up-and-coming town of Brimstone, but things are not the same between Virgil and Allie. Vowing to change, Allie thinks she has found redemption through the town's church and its sanctimonious priest, 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, Virgil and Everett struggle to keep the peace.

Professional reviews

"With wayward Allie French along, Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole head to Brimstone, a town where trouble's brewing between a preacher and a saloon owner. The tough edge in Titus Welliver's voice serves him well, giving believability to his first-person narrative as Everett. Parker's sparse writing is deceptive, turning out more dense and modern than listeners would expect, but it seems real coming from Welliver. The situation Everett and Virgil face is an old-fashioned Western showdown, but talk of sexual assaults and bordellos plays a major part in the novel. Fans of Parker's writing and of Westerns will be pleased by his latest expedition into the fictional West. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
