Publisher's Summary

It’s December in Boston, and Spenser is busy planning the menu for Christmas dinner when he’s confronted in his office by a young boy named Slide. Homeless and alone, Slide has found refuge with an organization named Street Business, which gives shelter and seeks job opportunities for the homeless and lost. Slide’s mentor, Jackie Alvarez, is being threatened, and Street Business is in danger of losing its tenuous foothold in the community, turning Slide and many others like him back on the street. But it’s not a simple case of intimidation - Spenser, aided by Hawk, finds a trail that leads to a dangerous drug kingpin, whose hold on the at-risk community Street Business serves threatens not just the boys’ safety and security, but their lives as well.
Unfinished at the time of his death, Silent Night was completed by Parker’s longtime agent, whose decades-long association with Parker’s work gives her unique insight and perspective to his voice and storytelling style. Her contribution also speaks volumes about their enduring friendship.

Don't Waste Your Money

This was nothing like a Spencer novel; it was a touchy-feely, warm and fuzzy story, completely unlike the Spencer novels of old. The author took the characters and tried to make them something they weren't. She tried to turn Spencer into Father Flanagan who carries a .44 and give Hawk a social conscious. There was hardly any action and no mystery whatsoever. 100% do not recommend this novel. Please bring back Ace Atkins.

Great Spencer in the Parker style

I have always loved Robert Parkers Spencer detective series. I listen to many of these as audiobooks narrated by Joe Mantegna in the 90s. This book follows in that wonderful tradition. It’s a good story, not too sentimental, and with all the hallmarks of a traditional Spencer story. Joe Mantegna is wonderful as narrator.
