Publisher's Summary

In the latest thriller featuring the legendary Boston PI, Spenser heads to the City of Angels to meet old friends and new enemies in a baffling missing person case that might shake Tinseltown to its core.

Gabby Leggett left her Boston family with big dreams of making it big as a model/actress in Hollywood. Two years later, she disappears from her apartment. Her family, former boyfriend, friends - and the police - have no idea where she is and no leads. Leggett's mother hires Spenser to find her, with help of his former apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, now an LA private eye.

Spenser barely has time to unpack before the trail leads to a powerful movie studio boss, the Armenian mob, and a shadowy empowerment group some say might be a dangerous cult.

It's soon clear that Spenser and Sixkill may be outgunned this time, and series favorites Chollo and Bobby Horse ride to the rescue to provide backup. From the mansions of Beverly Hills to the lawless streets of a small California town, Spenser will need to watch his step. In Hollywood, all that glitters isn't gold. And not all those who wander are lost.

Mantegna

Always like Mantegna, but this is not Robert Parker’s Spenser. It lacks his spirit and humor.

Spenser is back!

This is by far the best effort by Ace Atkins to keep Spenser alive. It was real and it was great!

Didn't feel quite right

I've really enjoyed Ace Atkins' Spenser books, but this felt off. Not sure why he decided to make Susan a little courser with the liberal use of f-bombs and decidedly un-Susan-like behaviour. The cleverly written interactions between her and Spenser were conspicuously absent. The lightheartedness was missing. I hope this is a one-off. I did like, however, the subtle nod to Robert Crais. I wonder how many people will catch it!

Spenser must be 80 plus years old but it doesn’t matter.

Ace Atkins continues to hold up the tradition of Robert B Parker with another excellent Spenser story. I especially liked the appearance of Joe Pike of Elvis Cole fame by Robert Crais. Robert B Parker created well loved characters who live on! Thank you, Mr. Parker.

not up to his standard

The author seems to have run out of plot lines and extended the length of the book with gratuitous swearing. tedious

Spenser is still Spenser

Ace is doing a great job of keeping Spenser alive and vibrant. Joe, as usual, does an awesome job. Keep them coming, Ace, Spenser is one of my inspirations in my own writing.

Is Michael Hitchens dead?

Because none of these clowns should be narrating these books. I like Joe, but he makes our hero into an overly snide smirking gas bag. You can all thank me (send me money) as it was me who had David Dukes taken out back and shot. The wheels of the Spenser series are unfortunately falling off. Lots of watered down PC approved jabs at friends and foes alike, Susan max level annoying whilst furthering the storyline. Bad character voices only make these grueling. Ace is giving obvious effort, but you can tell he’d rather be writing his own stuff and this is just too juicy of a paycheck to pass up. Can’t wait for that moron Marky Mark to put the final nail in the coffin of my all time favorite sleuth.

just a bit of criticism

who ever wrote the details #1 didnt know how to cook. if you want write a recipe at least know what you are talking about. Ace Atkins learn what flavors go together. Spenser used to build a dish that at least sounds good. I missed the whole setting how Spenser met the client. in this one you pick up in like chapter 4. over all its OK.

Not the best Spenser novel

I generally like these Spenser novels but not a big fan of this one. Started off well and the chapters are punchy and fast paced but by the halfway point I had lost interest. Made it through to the end. I will be trying to get me credit back on this one though!!
