"Atkins gives Robert B. Parker's long-running series one of its best installments to date" (Bookreporter.com) as Spenser investigates the kidnapping of a football player's son.

Kinjo Heywood is one of the New England Patriots' marquee players--a hard-nosed linebacker who's earned his standing as one of the toughest guys in the league. He may be worth millions but his connection to a nightclub shooting two years before is still putting a dangerous spin on his life, and his career.

When Heywood's nine-year-old son, Akira, is kidnapped, and a winding trail through Boston's underworld begins, Spenser puts together his own all-star team of toughs. It will take both Hawk and Spenser's prot#65533;g#65533;, Zebulon Sixkill, to watch Spenser's back. Because Heywood's next unpredictable move puts everyone in jeopardy as the clock winds down on Akira's future.

He's got the dialog and a lot of Spenser's characterization right--but he doesn't quite have Spenser's soul. Susan would *not* love this Spenser. And the high volume of product placement is really annoying.

The characters are the same.
Ace Atkins does a real good job
with them.
The dialogue just is not that of
Robert B. Parker. May he rest in
peace. I miss him.

Funny and terse writing style, very much in line with Parker's own voice.
