Publisher Description

Boston PI Spenser and right hand Hawk follow a con man’s trail of smoke and mirrors in this thrilling entry in Robert B. Parker’s long-running series.
Connie Kelly thought she’d found her perfect man on an online dating site. She fell so hard for handsome, mysterious M. Brooks Welles that she wrote him a check for almost three hundred thousand dollars, hoping for a big return on her investment. But within weeks, both Welles and her money are gone. Her therapist, Dr. Susan Silverman, hands her Spenser’s card...
A self-proclaimed military hotshot, Welles had been a frequent guest on national news shows speaking with authority about politics and world events. When he disappears, he leaves not only a jilted lover but a growing list of angry investors, duped cops, and a team of paramilitary contractors looking for revenge.

Enter Spenser, who quickly discovers that Welles’ name, résumé, and client list are nothing but an elaborate fraud. As he follows the mystery man’s trail from Boston to backroads Georgia, Spenser will need help from trusted allies Hawk and Teddy Sapp to make sure Welles’s next con is his last.

Little White Lies

Ace Atkins has really picked up his game. I was very disappointed with his last Spenser book but he has got more of Spenser and his crew. Different than Parker but still Spenser and this one was very entertaining. Keep writing them Ace and let your style make these little changes, it is not Parker but it is coming along. Richard

Finally - One as good or better

The Spenser books that have come our since Parker's passing have been uneven. For example, the one previous to this had a great new character and incorporated Parker's "voice", but the plot fell off a cliff. In Little White Lies, Atkins not only nails his voice and characters, he deepens both while giving us a plot that is worthy of Spenser, Hawk, Suze and Sapp. (Really nice to see Sapp again - and hear about his life today.) First one I read that I thought "Wow, Parker would be proud."

Little White Lies

It's hard to dislike the wisecracking and erudite Spenser. He is clever and resourceful. It was my first exposure to him, and I think that it is the beginning of a wonderful relationship.
