    When 14-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.

    Where does Robert B. Parker's Lullaby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have just started to listen to audiobooks while I walk, but would like to listen to ALL of the books narrated by Joe Mantegna!


    What does Joe Mantegna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joe Mantegna's voice seems to fit perfectly the droll humor of Parker, and the type of voice I would imagine from Spenser ... in the Sam Spade detective type of story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes! I put it on in my car every time I ran an errand ... even to catch a few more minutes whenever I got the chance.

    When Spenser's closest ally, Hawk, is brutally injured and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie, Spenser embarks on an epic journey to rehabilitate his friend in body and soul. Hawk, always proud, has never been dependent on anyone. Now he is forced to make connections: to the medical technology that will ensure his physical recovery, and to reinforce the tenuous emotional ties he has to those around him.

    What did you love best about Cold Service?

    I always love the interplay between all the characters, Spenser and Susan, Spenser and Hawk, Hawk and Susan. There is lots of Hawk in this book, and he is one my favorite characters. There is a lot of discussion between the actors about the morality of Spenser and Hawk's actions, which I liked a lot.


    What about Joe Mantegna’s performance did you like?

    I like everything about Joe Mantegna's performance, especially the subtle way he changes his voice for each character without overdoing it. I want to hear all the books he reads!
