Robert B. Parker – Cheap Shot

Robert B. Parker’s Spenser is alive and well, although sadly, the late author is not. Ace Atkins has picked up the mantle for the third time with Cheap Shot, and the transition is virtually seamless. Ace captures Spenser’s unique voice and lovingly recreates Boston,  both the legitimate and the underbelly, through the detective’s eyes. This plot involves the kidnapping of a New England Patriots player’s son, and Atkins speaks about how the plot lines are constructed and reviewed to stay true to Parker’s legacy.
