Summary
Appaloosa, the hometown of territorial marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but with prosperity comes a slew of trouble: gun hands, gamblers, drifters, and whores, all boiling in a cauldron of excess and greed. And there's a new menace in town: a wealthy, handsome easterner-and the operator of Appaloosa's new casino-Boston Bill Black. Boston Bill is enigmatic, flashy, and bigger-than-life. He's a high-stakes gambler and a notorious womanizer, and with eight notches on the handle of his Colt, he's rumored quick on the draw. when he finds himself wanted for the brutal murder of a Denver woman, the man of mystery quickly vanishes. Cole and Hitch set out on an extensive manhunt, and are confronted with a contingent of Denver lawmen, a legendary bounty hunter and longtime nemesis of Cole's, an escaped convict, and a refined woman of substance who just might prove to be the perfect match for Hitch.--Page 2 cover
