Harris and Mortenson play peacemakers – sort of like itinerant lawmen for hire – who are interesting characters but not believable. (I suppose if they’d been true-to-life peacemakers they wouldn’t have been half as interesting.) I didn’t know this was from a Robert B. Parker novel until I saw the credits; looking back I shouldn’t have been surprised. These are Parker’s branded real-men-who-get-each-other characters. I was engaged.
