The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt

In 1851, the mysterious Commodore orders his hired guns, Charlie and Eli Sisters, to track down and kill a prospector named Herman Kermit Warm. The brothers travel from Oregon to the Sierra foothills in search of Warm, along the way running into a witch, a dead Indian, a group of drunken floozies and a gang of fur trappers. Charlie is addicted to brandy and to women, but Eli is starting to wonder whether they should abandon the murder-for-hire business and settle down. Patrick DeWitt's homage to the classic western was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
