A quick, enjoyable read. It's mostly light banter vs. description or narrative, which is both good and bad. Interesting characters, revealed primarily through what they say.

This is the first Robert B. Parker book I've read; I started with the last in a series instead of at the beginning, which may affect my viewpoint.

P.S. If you're interested in art (this involves a stolen painting), don't expect much art-related and you won't be disappointed.

Dysfunctional families, art theft, art stolen during the Holocaust, people getting killed and the usual Spenser and friends repartee. ( )

Robert Parker may be dead, but his beloved Boston PI, Spenser, will live pretty much forever.
This was one of the last Spenser novels. I'm still trying to come to grips with that fact. ( )

One of Robert B's last novels before he popped off. We listened to it on a trip to the mountains. Fun Spenser. There were some slightly different tones in this one, and a new champagne for us to explore: Iron Horse. ( )
