REVIEWS

An exercise in pure, old-fashioned storytelling... fresh, fast and sure... The work of a master craftsman
Washington Post

The plot of Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven, with the numbers whittled down and a few twists added... a conclusion that had to make Parker smile as much as his readers will
Los Angeles Times

Beneath the trappings of this gunfighter novel, Parker really has something to say about . . . men and women in the Old West
Library Journal

Parker fans will expect the action and the smart-ass banter, but it's the sense of melancholy and irrevocable sacrifice that will separate this fine novel from most of the author's recent work
Booklist

Stunning... This is one of Parker's finest

Where better than the Old West for [Parker's] terse, punchy dialogue; buddy-bond themes; and propulsive, rock-steady storytelling?
