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 heavy-handed developer is trying to buy up Henry's condo on Revere Beach and sends thugs to move the process along. Soon Spenser and his apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, find a trail leading to a mysterious and beautiful woman, a megalomaniacal Las Vegas kingpin, and plans to turn a chunk of land north of Boston into a sprawling casino. Bitter rivals emerge, alliances turn, and the uglier pieces of the Boston political machine look to put an end to Spenser's investigation.
Aspiration, greed, and twisted dreams all focus on the old Wonderland dog track where the famous amusement park once fronted the ocean. For Spenser and Z, this simple favor to Henry will become the fight of their lives.

Robert B. Parker is proud
great, fantastic and enjoyable.
From the beginning to end I could not stop listening to the story. Ace Atskins did a great job with spenser by bringing his humor and tough character alive. The tradition continue without Robert B. Parker.
Joe does an exelent job with Spenser. He makes spenser live with his voice and does a great job bringing all the other character alive.
Everytime I read a Spenser novel I laugh. I listen to the story 3 times and do not get tire hearing it. Not only I laugh but Spenser makes me think.
This is a must read. If you love the spenser TV show you must read all his spenser novels.
