Robert Knott s IRONHORSE is not as good as Robert B Parker s first two Virgil Cole novels, but it s better than his last one, which was truly awful on just about every level Knott doesn t have Parker s characters down at all Cole makes many uncharacteristic, dull expository speeches in this book , and there s quite a bit of repetition, with the characters telling one another what we already know a rookie mistake for newbie authors , and he doesn t capture Parker s lean style But taken on it Robert Knott s IRONHORSE is not as good as Robert B Parker s first two Virgil Cole novels, but it s b
Do NOT read this book Please Ask any Hemingway imitator, just cause the sentences are basic doesn t mean they are easy to write Sometimes another writer can pick up the torch, Ace Atkins did very well by another Parker series, Mr Parker himself with Raymond Chandler but that is not the case here Since the author was involved with making the movie of the first book of the series, I assume he loves the series as much as I do but he can t do Parker patter justice As Everitt Hitch is one of my Do NOT read this book Please Ask any Hemingway imitator, just cause the sentences are basic doesn t mean they are easy to write Sometimes another writer can pick up the torch, Ace Atkins did very well by another Parker series, Mr Parker himself with Raymond Chandler but that is not the case here Since the author was involved with making the movie of the first book of t
While it was really nice to revisit two of my favorite gunslinging lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch the writing, while passable, was just not the same as when the late Robert B Parker wrote the pair Although this was, in fairness, completely to be expected, it was still mildly disappointing.Robert Knott, the author that continues the series with this entry, is actually familiar to the characters, having written the screenplay to the film adaptation of Appaloosa, the first book in Pa
Hummmseems I should have read the fine print earlier I ve stated that I was disappointed because Mr Parker only wrote 6 of these Turns out he4 only wrote 4 This and the next are written by Robert Knott the man who wrote the screen play for Appaloosa.So like other writers Robert B Parker has become a franchise I suppose.That s the sulfur now for the molasses Mr Knott does a very creditable job of following up the adventures of Virgil and Everett I enjoyed the b
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book as a gift I was a fan of Robert Parker and am now a fan of Robert Knott Knott gives Parker s characters a real sense of place and mission while keeping the dialogue very much in Parker s style For those readers who are fans of Western genre, tales of trains, or late 19th century turn of the last century history, you ll love this book And, Knott is like Larry McMurtry in that he enlivens Parker s character with such a sense of place, that ev I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book as a gift I was a fan of Robert Parker and am now a fan of Robert Knott Knott gives Parker s characters a real sense of place and mission while keeping the dialogue very much in Parker s style For those readers who are fans of Western genre, tales of trains, or late 19th century turn of the last century history, you ll love this book And, Knott is like Larry McMurtry in that he en
Excellent story and reproduction of Virgil and Hitch Caught the pace and tone perfectly Of the 3 authors who have tried to capture Parkers characters Mr Knott has done the best work Mr Knott is to be commended Looking forward toVirgil and Hitch stories.

I love this book and series I was very worried when I heard Parker s various series were being taken over, and so far every replacement has been worthy.This continues the adventures of Cole and Hitch, very clearly in Parker s voice for the characters Memorabl
Robert Knott is not Robert B Parker, but he did put in some effort It s a very long book, close to 400 pages, but there s a lot of padding to tell what really turns out to be a very simple story Cole and Hitch come across as 2 dimensional gunslingers, so I was a bit disappointed.
