Robert B. Parker's Lullaby

Front Cover

'I spotted the girl even before she knocked on my door.'

Mattie Sullivan is not Spenser's typical client. For a start, she's just fourteen. Nor is her request a typical one - to take a case that's already been solved.

But this kid is wiser than her years. And this case is less clear-cut, and far more dangerous, than it appears.

User Review  - dasam - LibraryThing

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

User Review  - CSDaley - LibraryThing

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
