Great book series
« on: April 30, 2022, 02:45:37 PM »
Been listening (for the third time in 5 years) to Robert Parker's Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch books on audio.  The first was Appaloosa, which the movie was based on.  There are a total of ten, though only the first four were actually written by Parker. The rest were written under agreement with the Parker estate by Robert Knott.  He does a good job of consistency in style and content.  I read somewhere that much of Knott's books in the series were based on notes and outlines left by Parker.

 Parker was a prolific novelist, and authored the Jesse Stone police series made popular by Tom Selleck.

Yup. Good reads all.

I very much enjoyed the RBP's Jesse Stone saga but the Appaloosa track always keeps me thrilled.
