Robert knott has captured the dialogue and pace of Parker perfectly.He keeps it simple in the plot but it keeps me interested and I just can't put it down. I am so happy that this series continues.Keep it coming!
Great read. With the loss of Parker we lost a gem. Yes he was an advisor on this book but what an advisor. When I see a book "co-written" I look for the other writers books that he / she has done without the advisor position (see Cussler). Very often the books are not as well written. Ironhorse is an excellent read. Have fun !!
The story line was good, the characters of Cole and Hitch, together with several others, including Berkeley, and Jimmy John, were good characters. The dialogue between Cole and Hitch was different, more voluble because Robert Knott does not write in the same fashion, no matter how hard he may try, as Robert B. Parker. The days of yore, in the west of Texas this time, were well drawn with some less than adequate discussion of the trips into the "mountains" on the trains. The trains of the time were not so well described either. All in all, because it is Cole and Hitch, five stars.
