Old friends. Small favors. Bitter rivals. Stirred together, it all makes for one explosive cocktail. Spenser can feel the heat stretching from Boston to Vegas and people are about to get burned. 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. Atkins has managed to nudge this venerable series in a new direction while staying true to its core, seemingly channeling its creator at every turn. It s a magnificent accomplishment that is not to be missed. Bookreporter.com"

Some things should live their natural life and then die with grace and dignity. Spenser, Hawk and Susan are figments of Parker's imagination and should have been allowed the dignity to pass with him.
Ace Adkins just doesn't cut it. He simply isn't the intellectual equal of Parker and it shows in the story line and in the characterizations. Overwritten in most parts it hurts to read. Spencer and Hawk are doing things they would have never done and, oh, just take my word for it or don't,
But if you absolutely have to have your Spenser fix, look for a used copy. It will hurt less.
