    It’s December in Boston, and Spenser is busy planning the menu for Christmas dinner when he’s confronted in his office by a young boy named Slide. Homeless and alone, Slide has found refuge with an organization named Street Business, which gives shelter and seeks job opportunities for the homeless and lost. Slide’s mentor, Jackie Alvarez, is being threatened, and Street Business is in danger of losing its tenuous foothold in the community, turning Slide and many others like him back on the street. But it’s not a simple case of intimidation....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Silent Night to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Joe Mantegna is the perfect voice for Spenser, Hawk and the rest of the gang.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Silent Night?

    I always love the banter between Spenser and Hawk.


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

    Joe Mantegna brings out the smart ass in Spenser. When I read Spenser novels, I read it with Joe's voice in my head.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't have any extreme reaction to Silent Night. It wasn't my favorite Spenser novel, but, like the others that I've read, I thoroughly enjoyed it and was sad to see the "time remaining" indicator on my audiobook tick down to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read or listened to every Spenser novel that there is and consider myself a big fan of Robert B. Parker and especially of the Spenser Novels. Silent Night is no exception. Like Ace Atkins, I think that Helen Brann has done a great job bringing us another Spenser story. I look forward to more in the future.
