Appaloose, the hometown territorial marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but with prosperity comes a slew of trouble: gun hands, gamblers, drifters, and whores, all boiling in a cauldron of excess and greed. And then there's a new menace in town: a wealthy, handsome easterner - and the operator of Appaloosa's new casino - Boston Bill Black. Boston Bill is enigmatic, flashy, and bigger-than-life. He's a high-stakes gambler and a notorious womanizer, and with eight notches an on the handle of his Colt, he's rumored quick on the draw. When he finds himself wanted for the brutal murder of a Denver woman, the man of mystery quickly vanishes. Cole and Hitch set out on an extensive manhunt, and are confronted with a contingent of Denver lawmen, a legendary bounty hunter and longtime nemesis of Cole's, an escaped convict, and a refined woman of substance who just might prove to be the perfect match for Hitch.

Not very good at keeping with the period. Character call women "Ms." and the technology is all over the map for the times! Seems like the author got bored about half-way through and just wanted to get it finished. Definitely not worth the time!
