Robert B. Parker was the author of more than fifty books. He died in January 2010.From AudioFile:
David Dukes uses a quick pace and distinct voicing to present a wide cast from Spenser's Boston milieu. These include his girl friend, a Beacon Hill aristocrat, his arrogant son and whispering daughter, a tough policeman, a gay rookie, a suave U.S. senator and his thugs. When the action moves to a sleepy Southern town, Dukes slows his pace and speaks in wonderful drawls, both educated and uneducated, both male and female characters. The listener will find this enjoyable, fast-moving and delightful, especially the Southern accents. Spenser may decide to let " sleeping dogs lie," but the listener will not want to sleep until finishing all the tapes. M.G.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
