I know I've said it before, but the Spenser books are what got me back into reading mysteries years back, so a visit with him & Hawk is always time well spent for me. Ace Atkins has written 2 Spenser books since Parker's passing and they've been good enough reads, but no one gets it just like Parker. It's quite easy to tell, at least for me, where Parker left off and Brann took up with this tale, but that's okay. The voice changes a bit, but it's still a good read. Sure do miss you, RBP, hope you're spinning some good tales for the angels! RECOMMEND!
