Review: Robert B. Parker's Lullaby (Spenser #40)

User Review  - Julie - Goodreads

It isn't a bad book but it's not Spenser. Sort of the way Tom Cruise wasn't bad in that movie but he wasn't Jack Reacher. Hawk was just wrong in this, more like a low rent version of himself. I won't read any more of these. Spenser died with Parker in my heart. Read full review
