First book by Parker that I've read. I think that the plight of Mattie made it especially interesting. Too bad that the "f" word offends some readers; however this style of communication fits in with the characters' lives. Walk past any high school and you'll hear it more often than not!

I do wish writers did not feel the need to use the "f" word and other similar 4-letter-type words every other sentence. Do they not have any other vocabulary?

I was impressed, thought Atkins did a pretty good job. I'm not a huge Parker fan but I've read a number of his books and I thought this was pretty close to his style and attitude. Though the Boston local colour sometimes seemed laid on a little thick.

I'm declaring up front that I'm a big fan of both authors. Atkins does a creditable job here as an hommage to Parker, but this book fell strangely flat for me. Something unquantifiable missing. In any case, I much prefer Atkins writing in his own voice and I miss Parker.

As usual, I couldn't put it down. Read it in a day! Ace Atkins is keeping Parker's style!

Happy that Spencer is back!!! Enjoyed the book but thought that Spencer's banter was a little over the top.

They're back. Spenser and Hawk remain stalwart and invincible. Enjoy!

I was very sad when Robert B. Parker left us. Along with Robert, his characters left us. Now Robert's characters live on through other authors. I really like the way Ace Atkins writes. I have missed Spencer and now he is back.

Good to have a chance to catch up with Spenser & Hawk & a bunch of the gang we have come to know & love. It must be a daunting task to take over such a beloved series with a huge fan base. Most of it rings true although the quips between the two main characters seem a little forced at times. Parker's gift was saying much with few words & wry humour & is a tough act to follow.
