    Henry Cimoli and Spenser have been friends for years, yet the old boxing trainer has never asked the private eye for a favor. Until now. A heavy-handed developer is trying to buy up Henry's condo on Revere Beach and sends thugs to move the process along. Soon Spenser and his apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, find a trail leading to a mysterious and beautiful woman, a megalomaniacal Las Vegas kingpin, and plans to turn a chunk of land north of Boston into a sprawling casino. Bitter rivals emerge, alliances turn, and the uglier pieces of the Boston political machine look to put an end to Spenser's investigation.

    Lewis says: "Really enjoyable performance."
    "Spenser continues!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Atkins has the style and the fever to continue the Spenser series. While Mantegna is an outstanding actor playing Spenser, bring back Prichard as the reader. Michael Prichard could make the reading of a phone book exciting. Great job overall. If you liked Parker's Spenser then the new version by Atkins will not disappoint you.

  • Bad Monkey

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    James says: "Disappointed"
    "Another Hiaasen Winner"

    The vivid descriptions of the where we were, the weather, and the development of the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bad Monkey?

    Knowing that Hiaasen had written another Florida adventure.
