In what I found to be a surprising move, the Spencer series is continuing through a new writer, Ace Atkins. While I was definitely skeptical, he won me over! The best part of the Spencer series has always been the dialogue and the relationships between both friends and foes. The wit continues in the same, well-loved vein. This time out Spencer takes a case for a 14-year-old girl trying to find the "real" murderer of her mother four years ago. Spencer has a weakness for lost youth and takes the case for a fee of a bag of donuts and a large coffee. The investigation takes him back into the lives of the Broz crime family and necessitates the services of Hawk, Spencer's fearless right hand man. Of course the forces of good overcome those of evil (for the most part). I look forward to the next installment of this excellent series. ( )

It might not be Shakespeare but Atkins really mastered Robert B Parker's style. ( )

Sometimes I think he's trying to out-Parker Parker, but this one's a keeper, right up to the white-knuckle ending. It's definitely a blessing that Spenser still breathes, even though Parker is gone. Sweet dreams, Robert B. ( )

God...I really miss Bob Parker. I don't like this trend using deceased author's star power to enrich the greedy publishers and the various family estates. Of course today money/profit is EVERYTHING.
Atkins is better than most but the Hawk-Spenser dynamic is flawed in this story. ( )
