    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.

    What disappointed you about Robert B. Parker's Lullaby?

    I didn't like Joe Mantegna's style of performance/reading. There seemed to be a lot of unnecessary cursing. Don't get me wrong, I can talk like a truck driver at times, but this just seemed excessive and contrived.


    Has Robert B. Parker's Lullaby turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not, sure, but I just didn't like his style of performance. I like Joe Mantegna as an actor, but he did not do well with this book in my opinion.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the character Mattie Sullivan.
