If You Like Robert Knott Books, You’ll Love…

The first book in Robert Knott’s continuation of the Cole and Hitch series is Robert B. Parker’s Ironhorse. This one sees Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole appointed as Territorial Marshals. They are given a job to transport some Mexican prisoners on a train back to the border. When the governor boards the train with his family and $500,000 in cash, things get a lot more interesting. One of Virgil’s old enemies has also hitched a ride on this train with a posse in tow and he’s got vengeance on his mind. The two men definitely have their work cut out for them in this novel.

Knott returned in 2014 with Robert B. Parker’s Bull River. Cole and Hitch have just captured the dangerous Alejandro Vasquez, who was accused of two murders, but just as they do that, the bank is robbed. Making away with the money is the bank president who did it because his wife is being held hostage by the robbers. The journey will take them to Mexico where they’ll need the help of Alejandro Vasquez to catch the men responsible for this crime. Lots of mystery and shooting will go down as Cole and Hitch solve the crime.
