Blue-Eyed Devil Robert Parker (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, $25.95)

Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch are back after their wild ride in Appaloosa in Robert Parker’s Blue-Eyed Devil.

This time they are on the wrong side of the law. Virgil makes his own rules, yet his courage is tested when he faces a gunslinger as good—or better—than he is. Everett narrates the story with unflappable calm. This is the fourth and last book in the Virgil Cole series by the recently-deceased Robert Parker, whose prose is tight as a cinch on a bronc and reads like the movie script it will probably become.
