Ace has the Spenser act down and only Joe's voice can be Spenser. This is one of my favorite Spenser stories.

I like the Spencer series and have read most of them. Ace Atkins does a good job. I feel as if the glib Spencer is becoming of a parody of the original. too much glib, not enough strait line for me. I think it detracts from a good story. The humor benefits from being in balance and not the main event. The story was good, but so much "personality" detracts from creating some depth and drama. This will not keep me from continuing with the series. I enjoy the non horrific and entertaining nature of these mysteries. I listen alot at night and don't want to have bad dreams.

Its not the same anymore now that sadly Mr Parker has no input, its very sad as Spenser and Hawk are such great characters, the story is weaker, the foul language worse and I don't think Joe Mantegna can remember the voices he did last time.
Overall, very disappointing.
Joe Mantagne gets Spenser so right! Didn't like the story though! Ace Atkins usually does a good job - just didn't like this one!
