Robert B. Parker's Lullaby (A Spenser Mystery) Summary

Robert B. Parker's Lullaby (A Spenser Mystery) by Ace Atkins

'I spotted the girl even before she knocked on my door.' Mattie Sullivan is not Spenser's typical client. For a start, she's just fourteen. Nor is her request a typical one - to take a case that's already been solved. But this kid is wiser than her years. And this case is less clear-cut, and far more dangerous, than it appears.

""It's all there: The crisp, rhythmic sentences. The ironic banter. The distinctly Spenserian attitude toward life that Atkins adopted as his own.

Spenser is back." --Bruce DeSilva, Edgar Award Winning author of "Cliff Walk
