Blue-eyed Devil is the shortest of Parker's Westerns. It goes over familiar territory, people with shady pasts, witty dialogue, etc. I've read or listened to all Parker's westerns-- and I don't like westerns.

This is the final book of the Series. I have listened to them all twice. I Love, let me be clear, LOVE Titus Welliver's performance. I am a light weight when it comes to graphic violence and exploited misery. I think that is one thing I like so much about this series. It seems so realistic without a sense of tragedy or more importantly judgements. The story revolves around "higher Morality", integrity, and being true to ones self and times. It is not about all the shooting. I like this aspect of Robert B Parker's book as a whole. It is a stretch to compare them to the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but the theme that hooks me is the same. A hero, heroine, who have their personal sense of integrity and truth based on a sense of intrinsic justice. I find it to be heroic to be able to adhere to their true nature regardless of social or religious standards. I might ad sociopaths and psychopaths probably are adhering to their inner truth, but his characters are not "sick".
I love the stories, direct, simple and rewarding. These are my favorite books to listen to when I am going to sleep. precisely because of Titus Welliver's voice and the lack of assaults on my emotional/nervous system. IF you like long drawn out complicated multi-plots with a lot of characters and suspense this might not be your cup of tea.
Truthfully, I wish this series could have gone on as long the Spencer series. I am sad that Robert Parker is no longer with us.
