The men have to watch for and contend with Bloody Bob Brandice, who was left with two .44 slugs in his chest during his last meeting with Virgil"--

Another case of very false advertising. For some reason Parkers heirs continue to allow use of his name by other authors who are in no way Parker's equal in their writing skills. Junk!

Not a bad job.

However, on page 226 of Ironhorse, the term "500K" was used to describe five hundred thousand dollars referenced in a telegram. Since this is a Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch novel that took place in the 1800's I doubt Americans of that era would have been able to comprehend the meaning of "K" when used in that context.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: Not the best, kind of tedious, too much description about trains. Definitely not the best n the series, however worth the read. Love the characters.
