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.
Mr. Atkins writes in the voice of Robert B. Parker
I was dubious when the Parker estate authorized additional books in the Spenser series but they have been fantastic. I thank the estate and Mr. Atkins.
Nicely done Mr. Atkins!
I'd heard that the Parker estate had authorized additional books, but didn't rush to check them out. Figured I'd let Mr. Atkins write a few so I'd have a good comparison, having read more than 10 Spenser books from Mr. Parker. As I mentioned, nicely done. Definitely keeping with the style, if not a bit different. The choice of Joe Montegna to do the audiobooks was BRILLIANT! He does a great job.
Thanks for keeping the series alive! No doubt Mr. Parker AND Mr. Urich would approve.
