(Robert Parker’s) Slow Burn

slowburncoverTitle: Robert B. Parker’s Slow Burn

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons

Pub. Date: 3 May, 2016

Series: Spenser #44

Genre: Suspense, Hard-Boiled, Crime Fiction


Throughout the twisted case that develops as the Boston P.I. pursues a serial arsonist, Spenser and his friends are in control and smooth as ever. In this new novel Ace Atkins once again delivers Spenser true to form. Not just in character, but every bit an all-around satisfying well-paced mystery.


Not much to say about this book, except that if you are looking for a solid writer of solid mysteries, look no further. Atkins is true to Robert B Parker’s vision of the Boston private investigator Spenser, and this book is a humorous and entertaining addition to an enjoyable series. If you haven’t read any others in the series, that’s okay because they stand alone, and this is a good one to enter Spenser’s world.


Read and enjoy!
