I love all the Spenser and Stone novels, but this one rises above the rest, imo. Spencer finds himself facing serious moral decisions that go beyond anything he's had to face in the past. A Must read for any fan of the Spenser series.

A Catskill Eagle is the best of the series so far. I am reading the books in their intended order, and this is a turning point, a remaking point. I just hope Spenser does not fall flat after such a succinct thriller.
