Spencer plunges into a world of grand illusion, peopled by cardboard cutouts, including a distinguished public servant with plenty to hide, a wealthy executive whose checks bounce, a sleepy southern town seething with scandal and the ambiguous Olivia herself, who may or may not really be dead.
Crack another case with Spenser.

This story was great because it just kept taking turns, and the plot kept getting thicker and thicker. It is a very dark story with multiple tragic situations. Definitely kept me listening to see what would happen. I agree with many readers who have commented that this narrator isn't the best, but I have to say, he really did shine here. All of the characters on the Boston police force really came alive in a new way. The scene where Martin Quirk breaks bad is fantastic.
