Robert B. Parker's Cheap Shot

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Kinjo Heywood is one of the New England Patriots' marquee players -- a hard-nosed linebacker who's earned his reputation as one of the toughest guys in the league. When off-field violence repeatedly lands Heywood in the news, his slick agent hires Spenser to find the men who he says have been harassing his client. Heywood's troubles seem to be tied to a nightclub shooting from two years earlier. But when Heywood's nine-year-old son, Akira, is kidnapped, ransom demands are given, and a winding trail through Boston's underworld begins, Spenser puts together his own all-star team of toughs.

He's got the dialog and a lot of Spenser's characterization right--but he doesn't quite have Spenser's soul. Susan would *not* love this Spenser. And the high volume of product placement is really annoying.

The characters are the same.
Ace Atkins does a real good job
with them.
The dialogue just is not that of
Robert B. Parker. May he rest in
peace. I miss him.

Funny and terse writing style, very much in line with Parker's own voice.
