I mistakenly did not listen to the sample narration before downloading, and I was bitterly disappointed. I love Robert B. Parker, and Spenser novels. This narrator is lispy and effeminate, and if you know Spenser and Hawk, it just doesn't work. It's a joke. If you love Spenser novels, you will be very upset. If this is your first, you will be cheated. Joe Mantegna is a good reader of Spenser novels-he has that tough guy voice. Choose one of those.

I would. The narrator is every bit as bad as everyone else claims. Lispy, and he sounds like he might be 11 or 12 years old.
He's not Spenser, not Hawk and not even particularly good. Do yourself a favor and buy the book, then pray they put Joe Mantegna back to work on the next one!

Solid thriller with entertaining twists and turns. I wanted to do a shout out for the narrator who does a fine job. Other reviewers not happy about how young his voice sounds, but he's a good narrator and tells the story well; one of the better narrators actually as others have no inflection or do too much over-the-top acting, or ridiculous/ high pitched women's voices and silly/ incomprehensible accents; solid performance for a solid story!
Daniel Parker may be Robert's son, but his voice is not suited to this. Although he does read well, there are no 'character's' created and it spoils it for me.
