Praise for SILENT NIGHT
“This is the perfect holiday treat for crime readers needing another Spenser fix”
“Brann does a seamless job…Diehard Parker fans will be delighted.”
Praise for Robert B. Parker
“Is there a more promising opening in contemporary crime fiction than Boston PI Spenser opening his office door to a new client? Instantly we get Spenser’s clear-eyed view of the client, what his or her dress and stature have to say, and the rat-a-tat-tat of Spenser’s wise-guy answers to the client’s queries…a series of unflagging excellence…Great plotting, clever dialogue, and Spenser’s mouthwatering cooking all make for a fantastic time.”
Parker’s dialogue, clever to a fault, moves his tales along at a natural, human pace as his characters square off, verbs and nouns used like switchblades.”
—The Chicago Sun Times
“A fast and fun outing…Parker was a true stylist. His strength was in his sparseness and Painted Ladies shows him in fine form.”
—The Boston Globe
“As with all of Parker’s 70 novels, the prose is tight and muscular and the dialogue is superb. A must read for faithful fans of the series.”
— Associated Press
“In Spenser’s end is his beginning....Spenser can still nail a person’s foibles on first meeting, still whip up a gourmet meal in a few minutes, still dispatch the thugs who haunt his office and his home, and do it all while maintaining a fierce love of Susan Silverman and English poetry....Long live Spenser.”
— Booklist--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

It’s Christmas time in Boston and Spenser has visions of a holiday dinner in his head when he receives a surprise visitor - Slide, an 11-year-old (“going on thirty”) street kid. The boy asks Spenser’s help for Jackie Alvarez, Slide’s mentor. Once homeless Slide found refuge at Street Business where Jackie is the director. This is an unlicensed shelter that takes in many like Slide and hopes to find jobs for them. Obviously, although the shelter receives support from Jackie’s wealthy brother, it can be a hand-to-mouth operation. Now, Jackie is receiving threats and believes someone is trying to close down Street Business. Who can say no to a kid at Christmas? Certainly not Spenser.
He calls on his pal, Hawk, to get to the bottom of the threats and soon finds it’s a deadlier situation than he had realized. A pitiless drug lord is at the bottom of it all and not only is the shelter at stake but lives as well.
Of course, Silent Night is read by the eminent Joe Mantegna who (to my knowledge) has read all of the Spenser series. He has become the voice of Spenser and a terrific one it is. He’s an accomplished Tony-Award winning actor who now stars in the popular Tv series Criminal Minds. Once again he delivers a flawless narration.
