Another terrific Spenser novel. "Heady and sardonic, with an unpredictable cast of lovers, liars, killers and clowns, Walking Shadow entertains even as it ponders the instability of identities. It is a thoroughly engrossing performance by a classic talent.?

I own a few Robert Parker novels but this is the first I've read (well listened too actually). Fortunately it was the abridged version because I don't think I could have sat through the unabridged version. I'm not into the arts and Chinese gangs are so not my thing. Luckily once the plot got past the theater aspects, the story picked up and got exciting. I particularly liked Spenser, Hawk and Pearl (the dog who had such personality and presence). The mystery was strange but well presented and I hadn't a clue as to the bad guy. I enjoyed this one and will definitely read another in this series.

A Massachusetts waterfront town. A small repertory theater with a big reputation. A soupcon of scandal. And Spenser is on hand to steal the scene.Hired by the Port City Theater Company's board of trustees to investigate the director's claim that he is being followed, Spenser feels like a fish out of water-until an actor is gunned down during a performance of a politically controversial play. Then Boston's premier private cop and his cohort, Hawk, go into action, plunging straight into a maze of motives that constitutes a master class in the difficulty of judging reality from appearances. Spenser soon discovers that solving the actor's murder is only a piece of the puzzle. From covert carnal connections within the community to municipal corruption with international tentacles; from petty troublemakers to major malefactors for whommurder is merely a day at the office-this case has everything it takes to stump the sharpest of Sherlocks. And nobody loves a challenge more than Spenser. Heady and Sardonic, with an unpredictable cast of lovers, liars, killers, and clowns, Walking Shadow entertains even as it ponders the instability of identies. It is a thoroughly engrossing performance by a classic talent.

In a shabby waterfront town, an actor is shot dead onstage. Granted, the script left much to be desired. But there's more behind the scenes than an overzealous critic - and Spenser and Hawk are combing Port City's underworld to find it.

One of the better Parker efforts!

Unfortunately, this is the first audio Spenser book I have listened to that I would never recommend to anyone. The reader is Robert Parker' son and his has great inflection and reads well, if you want to go to sleep. Check out any of the Spenser books read by Joe Mantegna. He does the voices, gives life to each character and you will love the audio, I promise.
