Publisher's Summary

Spenser is investigating the Port City Theater Company, where the director claims he's being stalked. When an actor is shot dead during a performance, all clues lead to the local Chinese Mafia, whose roots run deep in this drab waterfront city. With Hawk and ex mobster Vinnie assisting, Spenser eventually triumphs in one of his most compelling adventures.


What the Critics Say

"In fine form here, Parker's sardonic Boston PI Spenser, last seen in Paper Dolls , encounters danger, venality and plenty of comic material in this brisk tale spanning the worlds of experimental theater and illegal immigration." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is a tough, cleverly plotted novel in which each character's essence is revealed as Spenser sorts through the tangle of apparent motives." (Booklist)
"An irresistible new crime novel that will captivate both longtime and soon-to-be-devoted Spenser lovers." (Kirkus Reviews)

Fun thriller

Any additional comments?

Solid thriller with entertaining twists and turns. I wanted to do a shout out for the narrator who does a fine job. Other reviewers not happy about how young his voice sounds, but he's a good narrator and tells the story well; one of the better narrators actually as others have no inflection or do too much over-the-top acting, or ridiculous/ high pitched women's voices and silly/ incomprehensible accents; solid performance for a solid story!

Story doesn't suit a younger voice

Daniel Parker may be Robert's son, but his voice is not suited to this. Although he does read well, there are no 'character's' created and it spoils it for me.
