    Rochelle Baxter was an artist recently arrived from Washington State, cruelly cut down in the early stages of a promising career. Now all that remains of her lies on a cold slab in the Cochise County morgue, and Sheriff Joanna Brady knows that murder has once again infected her small desert community. But there is more to this homicide than initially meets the eye: the victim died while under government protection.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the narrators. For 16 books Gene Engene has been the narrator and has developed the character of JP exceptionally. His skills make him one of my favorite narrators.

    I'm sure Debra and Cotter are fine narrators but it was very difficult to listen to them read this book - especially Cotter since his voice is 180 degrees different from Gene's


    How could the performance have been better?

    Only one narrator. I'm not a fan of multiple narrators. This sounds like old time radio acting out a story.


    Did Partner in Crime inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    In an effort to be redundant - note to publishers - stick with what is great.

    Story

    Ten years ago, Paul Giacomin's corrupt father and loose mother used the boys as a pawn in their violent race: Only Spenser could call them off and straighten out the misled teen - almost getting killed in the process. Paul is now 24 and reconciled to his mother's wanton ways. But when Patty Giacomin vanishes, Paul begs Spenser to help him rescue her from the clutches of her boyfriend, a shady character he's sure coerced his mother into running.

    What would have made Pastime better?

    A more energetic narrator


    What could Robert B. Parker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It's probably a good book but Mr. Dukes reads it in such a monotone and so slowly that Spenser doesn't even resemble the character he was in previous books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Go back to the previous narrator


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Spenser series but this was just really bizarre. I wasn't able to get into the storyline very easily - I finished it but it was tough
