Publisher Description

Nice girls don't. But blond, beautiful April Kyle does. She's a hooker hooked on the wrong guy -- and she's on her way to trouble. So is Spenser. Looking out for April has landed him in the crud of Times Square. It's not a long way to big-business boardrooms where blood money get laundered into long green, sex is a commodity, and young girls are the currency. "Spenser's back and New York's got him...proficient with his gun and fists, not to mention his quick verbal shots." (Daily News)

"Can't get enough of Spenser and Hawk, the characters are full of wit, intellect, and strength. Parker's dialogue may be the best written in any genre, just the back and forth verbage between the two central figures alone is worth the reading."

— Ron (5 out of 5 stars)

    " Good Spenser outing. Parker seemed to have a thing re prostitution, as it seems to come up frequently in his books. This time, the storyline is limited, which suits Spenser books much better than the large scope Spensers. Hawk's always a hoot. Very solid ending. "
