I buy audio books to listen to during my commute and for taking long walks.

    When the bride of a Boston police detective vanishes, he hires Spenser to find her. His path leads from a New England college campus to glamorous L.A. sports clubs. When the trail turns to a world of prostitution, drug abuse, and self-destruction, Spenser must enter ghetto tenements to continue his search. Ultimately, Spenser must hire a Chicago hitman to help him free the girl from a sociopathic ex lover.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Thin Air to be better than the print version?

    I have really enjoyed Michael Pritchard's reading - I think he captured the dry wit of Robert B. Parker's writing. This reading makes Spencer sound more like Philip Marlow and I was not comfortable with the change. The witty remarks did not come across as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story.


    Did David Dukes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but Spencer is not Philip Marlow. The reader lost the dry humor of many of Spencer's lines.
