Publisher Description

“Atkins gives Robert B. Parker’s long-running series one of its best installments to date” (Bookreporter.com) as Spenser investigates the kidnapping of a football player’s son.

Kinjo Heywood is one of the New England Patriots’ marquee players—a hard-nosed linebacker who’s earned his standing as one of the toughest guys in the league. He may be worth millions but his connection to a nightclub shooting two years before is still putting a dangerous spin on his life, and his career.

When Heywood’s nine-year-old son, Akira, is kidnapped, and a winding trail through Boston’s underworld begins, Spenser puts together his own all-star team of toughs. It will take both Hawk and Spenser’s protégé, Zebulon Sixkill, to watch Spenser’s back. Because Heywood’s next unpredictable move puts everyone in jeopardy as the clock winds down on Akira’s future.

Not Parker

Good story. Nice to see the usual actors but the dialog is just off. It's like hearing different voices come out of familiar faces.

Not quite Parker, but very close. Good read.

It's almost as though Dr.Parker is still with us. Several other authors have aspired to the mantle that Ace Adkins wears as the worthy successor to Robert B Parker, but none comes close to style, flash and complexity of his work. It is doubly difficult to succeed the master as Dr Parker left us with characters we know and love but Ace Adkins breaths life into them in a way that few others can. Even the satisfaction that came at the end of each of Dr Parker's stories, comes again at the conclusion of this one. Thanks Ace, from a grateful fan of both Robert Parker, and now you.
