Ellis Alves is no angel. But his lawyer says he was framed for the murder of college student Melissa Henderson...and asks Spenser for help.

From Boston's back streets to Manhattan's elite, Spenser and Hawk search for suspects, including Melissa's rich-kid, tennis-star boyfriend. But when a man with a .22 puts Spenser in a coma, the hope for justice may die with him.

    " What can you say a Spenser story... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 1/2/2014

    " Love this one! Parker introduced "the Gray Man" to us and he's tougher than Spenser...for a while. Spenser will be in debt to Hawk for a long time (until he gets shot by the Ukranian mob several novels down the road and Spenser has to help him). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 12/23/2013

    " If asked to select a novel that most clearly broadcasts Spenser's code of ethics and purpose of life, it would be this one. Spenser is put to the test, in many ways. A brutal but wonderful novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel Espinales | 12/15/2013

    " One of the best books of the Spencer novels. "

    " One of the best of the Spenser series, and that's saying quite a lot. Spenser nearly doesn't make it out of this one, which adds a new twist to the tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 12/10/2013

    " A little different but still a great Spenser read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marissa | 12/6/2013

    " read by Burt Reynolds. Per Todd "5 Stars for Burt Reynolds, 1 for the book. That averages 3.' And then one less because I couldn't get into it. Burt was the best part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 12/3/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 10/25/2013

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Spenser; he is hired to get a black career criminal convicted of murder of white preppie student out of prison, if he's innocent; in doing so, Spenser comes up against a killer who almost does him in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/21/2013

    " I don't like these pulp fiction books that follow a generic formula, but it's something to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray | 8/9/2011

    " One of a series of Robert Parker crime-solver books. The crime-solver, Spencer, has a serious set-back and almost gets himself killed, but recovers to solve the crime of a murdered co-ed and show that the man serving time for the crime was wrongly accused. "
