Agreeing to help a street-smart teen who is convinced the wrong man was arrested for her mother's murder years earlier, Spenser investigates two possible suspects who prove more deadly than anticipated.

Random House Digital
When fourteen-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother's murder, he's not completely convinced by her claim that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her determination to make things right hit Spenser where he lives--they're the very characteristics he abides by. Mattie believes the man convicted of the crime is innocent, and points Spenser to the Southie toughs she saw carrying her mother away hours before her murder. Neither the Boston PD nor the neighborhood thugs are keen on his dredging up the past, but as Spenser becomes more involved in the case, he starts to realize that Mattie may be on to something. He will need Hawk's help to find peace for Mattie--a job that's more dangerous than Spenser ever thought.

I didn't read the Parker original, but I enjoyed this one. 7 of 10 for me.

This is a better version of the late Robert Parker with sensible story connections. 7 of 10 stars

I think that Atkins did a pretty good job of capturing Spenser's personality, language, approach to solving problems and so on; it felt like Spenser, and it was a joy to be in his presence again. And the situation Spenser found himself in, and his response to the 14 year old client felt classic. I wasn't so happy with Hawk; he felt "off" to me, without the depth of Parker's Hawk. But if you like Robert B. Parker, I think you'll like this. I'd listen to more.
