Doesn't evoke enough nostalgia to be worth the time. Just go reread Early Autumn.

Spenser does so little beyond the basic formula in this one. He bumbles around, brings in his backup, consults the bad guys, eats, loves Susan, doesn't quite cooperate with the good guys, wins a fight, loses a fight, gets shot (on a run, by the river, again). Does he figure anything out? Nope. Does he deliver devastating quips? Nope. Just a guy.

After penning two Sunny Randle books, Lupika was evidently tapped to try a Jesse Stone novel on for size. Mike Lupica brings with him a little more internal dialogue than previous authors of the series (including Robert B Parker himself) but doesn't dilute the characters or story in an unfavorable way. As a die hard fan of Parker's original works I have followed with interest the continuation of his beloved series. My one criticism involves an abundance of referencing and unnecessary elaboration on the relationships between the various characters that populate the Parker universe. Long time fans already know these relationships and I suspect new readers don't much care. Still I give his efforts a thumbs up and look forward to reading his take on a actual Spencer novel.… (altro)

Synopsis: 'PI Sunny Randall owes a favor. Her landlord and former client, famous novelist Melanie Joan Hall, is being threatened and blackmailed, and it is up to Sunny and her best friend Spike to ensure her protection. But as Sunny looks into the identity of Melanie Joan’s stalker, she learns that much of the author’s past is a product of her amazing imagination, and her loyalty to her old friend is challenged as she searches for the truth.

At the same time, Sunny springs into action when her aging ex-cop father, Phil, is threatened by a shady lawyer with a desire to settle an old score. Fighting crimes on two fronts, Sunny must use all of her savvy, and the help of her friends, in order to protect those she loves. And one thing is for sure with both of these cases: this time, it’s personal. ' From the author's website.… (altro)
