After the first “easy” assignment they find themselves in the presence of two beautiful women accompanied by there Father who is a successful politician. Things heat up when twenty armed gunmen take the train by storm. Hitch and Cole are now faced with the unexpected challenge of keeping the Governor and his family safe, as well as the $50,000 in cash the Governor is carrying safe. This turns out to be a true test of the duo’s skills, with a very polished ending.

I was excited when I first received “Ironhorese”, I had herd that the “Hitch/Cole” series by Robert B. Parker was amazing. Ironhorse had a decent story line, and was overall amusing. However I found that the story lacked creativity, and was a typical western involving two good guys that get to save the two beautiful damsels in distress, and of course there was a lot of money involved. I would have to say that I was disappointed after the amazing reviews I had seen on the Hitch/Cole series. But it was well written, and I am sure that the plot and character development would have made more sense had I read the series before starting this book. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

The book was not horrible but it was not exactly a Louis Lamour classic either.
