A Welcome Return
Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2018
I found this to be a compelling mystery with some unpredictable twists and three-dimensional characters that I was interested in. Perhaps more importantly, for the first new book in the series since Robert B. Parker's passing, the characters and tone felt consistent with what Parker had established in the previous books. It didn't feel like Mike Lupica was copying Parker's style, but he was definitely writing Parker's characters in Parker's world. I enjoyed revisiting Sunny Randall and her friends, and I hope this isn't the last we see of her.
