Robert B. Parker's Lullaby
When fourteen-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother's murder, he's not convinced by her claim that the wrong man was convicted. Mattie is street-smart, wise beyond her years, and now left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her determination to make things right hit Spenser where he lives.
As Spenser becomes more involved, he thinks that Mattie may be onto something after all. And he's going to need the help of his friend Hawk to find peace for Mattie--a job that's more dangerous than he ever thought.

Not as good as Parker's Spenser novels when he was at his best, but much better than Parker when he was writing plots that were just too off the wall. Atkins does a great job of capturing Parker's style, dialogue, and it is good to see these characters stay alive a little longer. Read full review

I hate to say it but this was the best Spenser book in years. I was starting to lose interest towards the end of Parker's series. Very enjoyable, although I still think there was too much Susan. A tiny bit too much of the little girl also. Read full review
