    Story

    Spenser is forced by loyalty into an alien world where violence is a way of lie and outsiders enter at a lethal risk. When Spenser's cohort Hawk is hired by the tenants of a gang-plagued Boston housing project known as "Double Deuce," he enlists his friend's aid. A friend's girl and her infant daughter have been gunned down. Though the act at first appears to be an accidental drive-by shooting, it soon becomes clear that it was premeditated murder.

    Judy Stone says: "Good Story, Lousy reader"
    "Good story, terrible reading"
    Overall

    The Spenser series that include Hawk are usually the best, but the reading of this one is horrible. Susan is channelling Scarlet O'Hara and Hawk is read as Stephen Fetchit. Normally a good reader, but obviously unaware of the characters.

    Story

    On September 19, 1356, a heavily outnumbered English army faced off against the French in the historic Battle of Poitiers. In 1356, Cornwell resurrects this dramatic and bloody struggle - one that would turn out to be the most decisive and improbable victory of the Hundred Years' War, a clash where the underdog English not only the captured the strategic site of Poitiers, but the French King John II as well.

    A good story well told. If you like any of Bernard Cornwell's books or Ken Follett's stories you'll probably like this.
