The first few pages I had a difficult time getting the rythm of Brann's writing.    Shortly there after, I found the rythm and very much enjoyed this version of Spenser.     She seemed to have captured the essence of Spenser and the cadence of his speech, which is something that I  consistantly enjoy.

As has been the case with many recent Spenser novels more Hawk would have been nice.    Also the book was much smaller in size and page count than I am used to.  When I purchase a hardback (always my preference) I want something of substance.   This felt almost like a paperback.

Brann finished Robert B. Parker's novel Silent Night with a flou

Brann finished Robert B. Parker's novel Silent Night with a flourish. As much as I hate to say this the men who took over for his Jesse Stone and Spencer novels is missing the point. It is time to let Mr. Parker and his wonderful characters rest in peace.

    Parker's "voice" continued

    Helen Brann does a nice job finishing up Robert Parker's final manuscript, she managed to maintain his "voice" in the language and writing style. For those who are fans of Spenser, this is a nice holiday treat.
