It’s a white Christmas in Boston and Spenser and Susan are looking toward all the joys of the holiday. But the mood turns dark when a young boy named Slide contacts Spenser. Street-tough and world-weary, the eleven-year-old convinces Spenser to meet with Jackie Alvarez, who runs a shelter for homeless youth—one under inexplicable threats by persons unknown. Jackie and Slide need Spenser’s help to stop the intimidation before it escalates into something much worse.
But when the source of the threats is revealed to be even more sinister than first imagined, Spenser must find a way to protect Slide and the other lost boys for whom the shelter is the last chance for a better life.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
It must be hard for a woman to write dialog between Spencer and Hawk. A valiant effort but missed the mark mostly with Hawk. I am so glad the author tried and enjoyed the novel. The relationship between Spencer and Hawk is a complex male one and I think no woman could have done better. I have missed the banter of my two heroes and will forgive the lost nuances and suspend my disbelief and pretend the words came from Robert for my on sake.
It's not a RBP novel. It's a Helen Brann novel. It certainly wasn't Spenser or Hawk.
Thanks for trying Ms. Brann.
I believe I have read each of Robert Parker's books. This was not a disappointment. The hearts of each character remained true and yet... It's nice to know that Mr Parker was an original. My deepest sympathies to those who miss the man and those who miss the author.
