Book Review

P.I. Spenser, knight-errant of the Back Bay, returns in this stellar addition to the iconic New York Times–bestselling series from author Ace Atkins.

What started out as a joke landed seventeen-year-old Dillon Yates in a lockdown juvenile facility in Boston Harbor. When he set up a prank Twitter account for his vice principal, he never dreamed he could be brought up on criminal charges, but that’s exactly what happened.

This is Blackburn, Massachusetts, where zero tolerance for minors is a way of life.

Leading the movement is tough-as-nails Judge Joe Scali, who gives speeches about getting tough on today’s wild youth. But Dillon’s mother, who knows other Blackburn kids who are doing hard time for minor infractions, isn’t buying Scali’s line. She hires Spenser to find the truth behind the draconian sentencing.

From the Harbor Islands to a gated Florida community, Spenser and trusted ally Hawk follow a trail through the Boston underworld with links to a shadowy corporation that runs New England’s private prisons. They eventually uncover a culture of corruption and cover-ups in the old mill town, where hundreds of kids are sent off to for-profit juvie jails.

  • Does not check facts

    By Madiluc
    Atkins is getting better but his books are not seamless with how Parker wrote and I do not expect they ever will be. To much product placement in his books. Also does not check facts, F. Lee Bailey is NOT dead and Tampa Bay Rays haven't been the Devil Rays since 2008, those are just 2 examples. "Spenser" loves sports and would know that. I'm confused about why we didn't find out who the "kid" was.
  • Excellent

    By RonUse
    I'm fiercely loyal, but this is as good or better than RP himself.
  • Kickback

    By Wizard inner
    A poor substitute for the original. Not even a valiant effort to capture (or copy) the witty exchanges between characters. Almost a waste of time.
  • Almost like Robert Parker

    By CentralCALady
    He's come a long way. Not perfect, but much better than his past tries.
  • Kickback

    By Schroe4
    Atkins apparently does not really get Spenser and his Relationships. This was not a Spenser book and hopefully they will figure that out and make a change. I could go on and I am a hardcore fan but that was approaching awful!
  • Spenser & "Kickback"

    By bobdino k.
    I miss Robert B. Parker but Ace Atkins does a fine job of keeping Spenser & Hawk maintaining "Truth, Justice & The Spenserian Way"!

    The transition since Mr Parkers death has been seamless, and I've read all of his books .....I will continue with this quality.
