Bad copy editing

Bill Crider posted two excerpts of a new Western novel by Robert B. Parker in his blog:

From Appaloosa, p. 266: "The room was quiet and noisy."

p. 238: "Bragg took a tan leather case out of his inside coat pocket. He offered a cigar to Bragg and me."

Quite nice! (I'm no big fan of Parker and this is pretty satisfying to me!)
