Book #41–Wonderland

51Gvg1ILRhL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_Spenser is back. I was at the library and walked by Wonderland on a display. When Robert Parker died, I thought I’d never read another Spenser novel, but here one was. An estate approved author, Ace Atkins, wrote the book, his second. Apparently I have another book to read.

It’s Spenser, though a little different. It felt long, and some of the writing was slightly off, but it’s close. I really enjoyed it and the book pulled me in, thought I was disappointed there was no Hawk.

Spenser has a new apprentice, Z, which may be from the first book. Henry Cimoli asks for help, and Spenser gets involved. The plot has lots of twists and seems more intricate than some of the Parker novels. It’s based on the idea that gambling is coming to Boston.

Worth the read.
