THE NEW COLE AND HITCH NOVEL

Newly appointed as Territorial Marshals, Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch are traveling by train on a mission to escort Mexican prisoners to the border. But when the Governor of Texas climbs aboard with his wife, daughters, and $500,000 in tow, the journey becomes a lot more complicated. An old enemy—still carrying plenty of scars from the last time he saw Virgil—has hitched a ride. He’s not alone. And he’s got vengeance on his mind.

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.
