A richly imagined novel of the Old West, as spare and vivid as a high plains sunset, from one of the world's most talented performers. When it comes to writing, Robert B. Parker knows no boundaries. From the iconic Spenser detective series and the novels featuring Sunny Randall and Jess Stone, to the groundbreaking historical novel Double Play, Parker's imagination has taken readers from Boston to Brooklyn and back again. In Appaloosa, fans are taken on another trip to the untamed territories of the West during the 1800s. When Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch arrive in Appaloosa, they find a small, dusty town suffering at the hands of renegade rancher Randall Bragg, a man who has so little regard for the law that he has taken supplies, horses, and women for his own and left the city marshall and one of his deputies for dead. Cole and Hitch, itinerant lawmen, are used to cleaning up after opportunistic thieves.

I agree this is an imaginative western and Titus W. is a fantastic narrator. I just don't 'get' why writers find it so necessary to proliferate the entire book with B bombs. I have no problem with using the word, reading it, hearing it but in moderation for making a very strong point. Overuse it just lazy, ignorant, attention-seeking. I've not read this author previously, so the two books I've checked out & returned will be my last - not worth my time.
