[an error occurred while processing this directive] I'm still in the process of reading this book.
Fourth in this western series. Pretty much like the other two I've read.
Virgil Cole is one of the best gunfighters around (but there are lots of people he hasn't fought also still around). His friend Everett Hitch is, too. They're back in Apaloosa, with a new set of people fighting over controlling the town, and following their own standards. And they're left standing at the end of the book (though this is the last of them that Parker wrote I believe; there are continuations by other people).
The short chapters (and starting each chapter on a new page) inflate the apparent size of the book a bit. And the short choppy dialog, though that fits the characters.
