Praise for Robert B. Parker's Bull River "A twisting, turning ride...and a welcome second edition to the return of these delightful western characters."--The Oklahoman "Straddles that boundary between the whodunit and the gunslingers. The result is one that should be particularly satisfying to fans of both genres."--Bookreporter.com "Clever detective work and considerable shooting. It reads lightning fast...Suspenseful." --Booklist "Provides fans exactly what they're looking for."--Kirkus Reviews And for the Cole and Hitch Novels "Hits with the intensity of an eight-gauge shotgun blast."--Tulsa World "Robert Knott...has penned the next great saga. Parker fans are going to love it!"--Ed Harris, Academy Award-nominated actor "Hitch and Cole, reminiscent of the steely eyed, soft-spoken lawmen Randolph Scott played in the movies, speak volumes to one another with a few words and a nod of the head."--The Associated Press "Add Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch to all the great characters that Robert B. Parker created over the decades to give us enjoyment and entertainment."--BookReporter.com "A page-turner of the first order, and updated western that feels as fresh as anything out there....Virgil Cole never misses, not when it matters. Parker didn't either."--The Boston Globe
