Publisher Description

Old friends. Small favors. Bitter rivals. Stirred together, it all makes for one explosive cocktail in this New York Times bestselling thriller that has Spenser feeling the heat...

Henry Cimoli and Spenser have been friends for years, yet the old boxing trainer has never asked the private eye for a favor. Until now. A developer is trying to buy up Henry's condo on Revere Beach—with a push from local thugs. Soon Spenser and his apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, are on the trail of a mysterious woman, a megalomaniacal Las Vegas kingpin, and a shady plan to turn a chunk of land north of Boston into a sprawling casino. As alliances shift and twisted dreams surface, the Boston political machine looks to end Spenser's investigation one way or another—and once and for all.

Customer Reviews

Aim high. ,

Ace hits it.

Ace got the voice right this time. Better than lullaby, hyena first one he did.

Over priced

Author seems to write the absolute minimum, but charge the maximum for an e-book.

A worthy apprentice

Atkins is better with his second Spenser effort. He is growing into the role well and this volume splendidly mixes Atkins southern prowess narrative with Parker's style and flare. Atkins is not trying to be Parker or replace Parker, and recognizes Spenser belongs to the reader more so than the present author. In making the story more his own he offers us all a worthy homage to the creator of this world. I truly enjoyed the use of Z in this novel as the troubled sometimes insecure trainee of our beloved detective-perhaps this is the new author in guise relating to each of us the challenges of the able working in the shadows of their predecessors?
