Itinerant lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch return in the gritty new installment of the New York Times–bestselling series.
Appaloosa, the hometown of Territorial Marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but with prosperity comes a slew of new trouble: carpetbaggers, gamblers, migrants, peddlers, drifters, thieves, 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 owner of Appaloosa’s new casino—Boston Bill Black. 
Boston Bill is flashy and bigger than life. He’s a prankster 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 a series of murders, he quickly vanishes. Cole and Hitch locate and arrest him, but Boston Bill escapes once again. Another murder sets the duo on his trail, eventually taking them back to Appaloosa—where one woman in particular may, or may not, prove to be the apple of Boston Bill’s eye.

Fun listen if you are looking for a enthralling Wild west story.

I was able to listen to the entire book, so I gave it 2 stars, but I would not recommend this book. The characters were profoundly uninteresting. While few, if any, men can write good women, this was beyond all expectations. I didn't know who "Ali" was for a while, and I was thinking we would be getting an explanation of why Virgil was taking care of his mentally disabled sister. Then it was his wife! I was waiting for a story describing how she was shot in the head by some bad guy leaving her disabled. But no. It was never explained. I will not be listening to another book by this writer to find out, either.
