For years, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch have ridden roughshod over rabble-rousers and gun hands in troubled towns like Appaloosa, Resolution, and Brimstone.  Now, newly appointed as Territorial Marshalls, they find themselves traveling by train through the Indian Territories.  Their first marshaling duty starts out as a simple mission to escort Mexican prisoners to the border, but when the Governor of Texas, his wife and daughters climb aboard with their bodyguards and $500,000 in tow, their journey suddenly becomes a lot more complicated.

The problem is Bloody Bob Brandice.  He and Virgil have had it out before, an encounter that left Brandice face-down in the street with two .44 slugs lodged in him.  Now, twelve years later on a night train struggling uphill in a thunderstorm, Brandice is back -- and he's not alone.  Cole and Hitch find themselves in the midst of a heist with a horde of very bad men, two beautiful young hostages, and a man with a vendetta he's determined to carry out.

Not even Titus Welliver can save this.

This offering from Robert Knott in the continuing story of Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch was good but it felt different, of course. Titus still rocks it.

(The 1ST book in the Cole and Hitch series)
A novel by Robert Knott. HE TOOK OVER THIS SERIES WHEN PARKER PASSED AWAY. THIS IS BOOK 1 OF HIS NEW SERIES AND BOOK 5 OVERALL.

Another case of very false advertising. For some reason Parkers heirs continue to allow use of his name by other authors who are in no way Parker's equal in their writing skills. Junk!

Not a bad job.

However, on page 226 of Ironhorse, the term "500K" was used to describe five hundred thousand dollars referenced in a telegram. Since this is a Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch novel that took place in the 1800's I doubt Americans of that era would have been able to comprehend the meaning of "K" when used in that context.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: Not the best, kind of tedious, too much description about trains. Definitely not the best n the series, however worth the read. Love the characters.

A strong tip of the cowboy hat to the author for carrying on Parker's western series in fine fashion. Knott weaves an exciting story with sharpshooting lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, with plenty of 19th century railroad details that make it all the more interesting.
