‘Nobody does it better’ Publishers Weekly

When Boston mobster Julius Ventura asks Spenser and his sidekick, Hawk, to find his missing son-in-law, it’s clear he’s not telling the whole truth. But something about the case appeals to Spenser and he agrees to take it, only to find himself at the centre of a gangland turf war.

‘When it comes to detective novels, 90 per cent of us admit he’s an influence, and the rest of us lie about it’ Harlan Coben

‘Reading a Spenser novel is like a family reunion – it makes one feel good’ Library Journal

Reviews

Spencer is the invincible knight, the timeless hero of American detective fiction
New York Times
Tougher, stronger, better educated, and far more amusing than Sam Spade, Phil Marlowe or Lewis Archer... Spenser gives the connoisseur of that rare combination of good detective fiction and good literature a chance to indulge himself
Boston Globe
