On location in Boston, bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. From the start the case seems fishy, so the Boston PD calls on Spenser to investigate. Things don’t look so good for Jumbo, whose appetites for food, booze, and sex are as outsized as his name. He was the studio’s biggest star, but he’s become its biggest liability.

In the course of the investigation, Spenser encounters Jumbo’s bodyguard: a young former football-playing Native American named Zebulon Sixkill. He acts tough, but Spenser sees something more within the young man. Despite the odd circumstances, the two forge an unlikely alliance, with Spenser serving as mentor. As the case grows darker and secrets about both Jumbo and the dead woman come to light, it’s Spenser—with Sixkill at his side—who must put things right.

    " I'm sad that this is Parker's ladt Spencer. I don't want to contemplate another author taking on this character, but I would like to hear more about Sixkill or Hawk ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Buddy | 2/7/2014

    " What a FUN read! This was recommended to me by a co-worker. I really liked the character "Spencer" .. a quick, witty, bad ass mofo! I will definitely be including all of the books of the Spencer series into my "to-read" list. (Sixkill is book #40) SO I am excited to know there are 39 other books featuring Spencer *two thumbs up* "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 2/4/2014

    " Parker's last novel before his death. I missed Hawk in this one but it was fun, as usual. Sad he's gone, he and Spenser and Hawk and all of them will be missed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doneen | 2/4/2014

    " There's no such thing as an un-interesting, satisfying "Spenser" novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marty | 1/21/2014

    " Somewhat disappointing final Spenser. It's still Spenser, but spending too much time on philosophy and not enough on being Spenser. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Collins | 1/9/2014

    " Last of the Spencer novels, published after Robert B. Parker's death. Great way to end the series. So long, Spence, Suzanne, Hawk, et. al. It has been fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/9/2014

    " It was sad to think this was the last Spenser novel, and that he didn't get to develop his new "Hawk" character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Bell | 1/9/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. Very fast paced and the writing is sparse and to the point. First time I read this author and really liked his writing style and how he told the story. This was the last in a series of books for this character, a private detective in Boston. The author passed away in 2010. I'm going to go back to the beginning and read the first book with this character and read all the subsequent books in order. There are 40 books so Imhave storiesmto look forward too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dionne Nelson | 1/1/2014

    " Robert Parker isn't an author I follow. I was in need of a quick read that didn't require much thought on my part. That's exactly what I got. Not sure if that's a good or bad review :) Overall, it was an overdone plot, and predictable storyline. Oh well, it served it's purpose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 11/23/2013

    " Too bad Parker didn't get the chance to explore Sixkill more unique character in the genre would make an interesting compliment to Hawk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 8/18/2013

    " Three stars for a familiar but enjoyable by-the-numbers Spenser novel. One extra star because it is Parker's last Spenser novel, which made the ending more resonant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeva | 7/4/2013

    " How good was this book? This book was soooo good, I couldn't put it down---well, maybe a few times, but seriously, it was great fun. Sixkill was a good addition to Spenser's cast of characters. This was Mr. Parker's last Spenser novel...would that Hawk had been there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa Scott | 7/1/2013

    " What a great story to end a series. To bad there will not be more of Sixkill. I would have like to get Hawk take on sixkill. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 6/6/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob Battle | 9/7/2012

    " This is the 40th & last of the Spencer series by Robert B Parker. Like the other ones I've read it doesn't disappoint. If you've never read Parker, do yourself a favor & do so. Always a quick, funny and satisfying read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Mancini | 9/4/2012

    " Excellent!! I am never disappointed in the Spenser series...I am sooo sorry that the books end here, Mr. Parker had a winner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nonie | 12/9/2011

    " Robert Parker died in 2010 but not before leaving us with Spenser & Jesse Stone. While his stories are not 100% believable, they keep me engrossed. This was another good, fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 12/4/2011

    " It was worthy of the series. I liked it. I'm sad it's probably the last. "
