Summary

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. Working through gang leaders and corrupt cops, Spenser learns about humanity and justice as he strives to achieve his goal.

Good Book Ruined By an Awful Narrator

I read this book about twenty years ago and found it well written and quite entertaining. I thought I had listened to this book before; I thought that the reader had been Joe Mantegna. I'm not sure if I was mistaken about listening to this one previously, or if there has been more than one production. I'm damn sure if I did listen to this one previously I wouldn't have purchased it. The narrator is awful for the voice of Spenser and much worse for everyone else; avoid this one like a social disease.

Good story, voice is very different

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.
