This book starts with action and it just keeps coming. The writer's medical knowledge enhances the descriptions of the fight "scenes". Character development is excellent. The ending leaves an opening for a sequel - I hope one is on the way!
This is my first audio book in about a year and it was a great way to get back into listening. It will be a tough act to follow.
The unabridged version might have done a better job of helping me keep track of the numerous characters. Events and locations change quickly and I can't help but wonder what I missed. Still, it was good enough to want to find out how everything turns out.
The first Robert Parker book I read was "Poodle Springs". I was hooked and read every book he had written. I am disappointed with this one. Spenser has lost his intensity, Hawk is practically non-existent, and Susan is a snob. They used to be such robust and likeable characters. I hope Robert Parker chooses to retire Spenser and write more books like "All Our Yesterdays" and "Double Play". Those I recommend with five stars.
