Publisher Comments:

Spenser knows somethings amiss the moment Dennis Doherty walks into his office. The guys aggressive yet wary, in the way men frightened for their marriages always are. So when Doherty asks Spenser to investigate his wife Jordans abnormal behavior, Spenser agrees. A jobs a job, after all.

Not surprisingly, Spenser catches Jordan with another man, tells Dennis what hes found out, and considers the case closed. But a couple of days later, all hell breaks loose, and three people are dead. This isnt just a marital affair gone bad. Spenser is in the middle of hornets nest of trouble, and he has to get out of it without getting stung.

With Hawk watching his back and gun-for-hire Vinnie Morris providing extra cover, Spenser delves into a complicated and far-reaching operation: Jordans former lover Perry Alderson is the leader of a group that helps sponsor terrorists. The Boston P.I. will use all his connections-both above and below the law-to uncover the truth behind Aldersons antigovernment organization. Alderson doesnt like Spenser poking around his business, so he decides to get to him through Susan. But what Alderson doesnt realize is that Spenser will do anything to keep Susan out of harms way; nothing will keep him from the woman he loves.

Review:

"If ever there was an argument for selective abridgment, this audio version of Parker's latest Spenser outing is the poster child for it. Spenser, Susan and everyone else uses 'I said' or 'she said' so often that it soon becomes laughable. It's also unnecessary, considering Mantegna's vocal talents easily let listeners know exactly who is talking. His Susan and Hawk sound different enough to let us in on the secret, and his Spenser has the humorous crackle we've come to expect. With villains that are equally differentiated, Mantegna keeps the book moving and excels at Parker's smart dialogue. But even the most loyal Spenser addicts might have to swallow a chuckle because of the attribution repetition. Simultaneous release with the Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 20)."
