About this title:
Synopsis:
Law enforcement in Appaloosa had once been Virgil Cole and me. Now there was a chief of police and twelve policemen. Our third day back in town, the chief invited us to the office for a talk.
 
The new chief is Amos Callico, a tall, fat man in a derby hat, wearing a star on his vest and a big pearl-handled Colt inside his coat. An ambitious man with his eye on the governorship—and perhaps the presidency—he wants Cole and Hitch on his side. But they can’t be bought, which upsets him mightily.
           
When Callico begins shaking down local merchants for protection money, those who don’t want to play along seek the help of Cole and Hitch. When Cole is forced to fire on the trigger-happy son of politically connected landowner General Horatio Laird, Callico sees his dream begin to crumble. The guns for hire are thorns in the side of the power-hungry chief, and he’ll use any excuse to take them out. There will be a showdown—but who’ll be left standing?

From AudioFile:
Parker passed away earlier year, so this is likely the last ride with laid-back but deadly cowboys Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch. The novel is filled with Parker's vivid descriptions and entertaining characters. Multiple plotlines keep listeners intrigued with lusty and violent action. Titus Welliver's voice comes across as natural and appropriate for the Western genre. He excels in portraying the male characters and is successful at softening his voice and raising its pitch to portray credible females. The relationship between Virgil and Everett is filled with camaraderie. Listeners will enjoy their offhand jokes as well as Parker's descriptions of the Old West. S.C.A.
