4.0 out of 5 stars Spenser with an all-star cast of thugs, 5 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Potshot (Paperback)
This is an adequate Spenser novel, but I do get the idea that the series is near its natural end. The roundup of characters from previous books gives me the idea. And a strong similarity between this and the previous Spenser book seems like a bit of lazy writing. My reaction when I realized where the plot was going was a resigned, "What, again?"
Spenser's hired to find the killer of a young woman's husband, but it's been established by her and the sherrif that the killer must be one of a gang headed by "The Preacher". After a bit of investigation, Spenser isn't so sure that the gang is responsible, but figuring the town would be far better without it agrees to being hired also to get rid of the gang. But he realizes that he alone or even with Hawk's help doesn't stand much of a chance against a gang of 40, so he enlists characters from the previous books.
All in all, this is fun, but I personally have the feeling that author Parker and character Spenser are both tiring of the series.
