Kinjo Heywood is a hard-nosed linebacker for the New England Patriots 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 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. When Heywood's nine-year old son, Akira, is kidnapped, ransom demands are given, and a winding trail through Boston's underworld begins. It will take both Hawk and Zebulon Sixkill to watch Spenser's back and return the child to the football star.

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.
