Little White Lies Spenser #45 Summary Í 109 Ace Atkins Ý 9 Read & Download Im a check for almost three hundred thousand dollars hoping for a big return on her investmentBut within weeks both Welles and her money are gone Her therapist Dr Susan Silverman hands her Spenser's cardA self proclaimed military hotshot Welles had been a freuent guest on national news shows speaking with authority about politics and world events But when he disappears he leaves not only a jilted lover but a growing list of angry investors duped cops and a team of pa. 12 rounded up This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader Pearl and I were off to Central Suare Her long brown ears blew in the wind as we drove along Memorial Drive against the Charles Rowers rowed joggers jogged and bench sitters sat It was midSeptember and air had turned crisp The leaves had already started to turn red and gold shining in Technicolor upon the still waterI debated about what uotation I d open with I went with this Parker esue and Atkins esue description Little White Lies is one of the better of Atkins run on this series because like here he did something that feels like something Parker would ve written but not uite what he d have said the I think about it the less I think that Parker d have said bench sitters satActually that s true of the other uotation I almost used tooI nodded adding water to the new coffeemaker sitting atop my file cabinet I d recently upgraded from Mr Coffee to one of those machines that used pre measured plastic cups I placed my mug under the filter clamped down the lid and returned to my desk Demonic hissing sounds echoed in my office Where have you gone Joe DiMaggioThis is Atkins sixth Spenser novel and you d think he s got enough of a track record that I could stop comparing him to Parker Well you d be wrong I can t stop This like most of Atkins work on this series is so reminiscent of early Parker novels that it makes some of the latter Parkers look like they were written by a hired gun Still I m going to try to keep it to a minimum because it doesn t seem fair to keep doing Susan has sent one of her clients to Spenser for some help that she can t provide Connie Kelly had been dating someone she met online invested in one of his real estate deals and he vanished taking the money with him Could Spenser track him down and get her cash back Sure he says It doesn t take long for the investigation to show that he owes plenty of people money a couple of months rent here hundreds of thousands of dollar thereHere s the fun part M Brooks Welles the deadbeat in uestion is a silver haired silver tongued mainstay on cable news He s former CIA and an expert on military and national security issues one of those that producers call on regularly when they need a talking head Why s a guy like that flaking out on real estate deals Spenser knows something fishier than expected is going on which takes him into a world of mercenaries gun deals and the ATF Then someone tries to kill him A couple of times And the book stops feeling like a semi light adventure poking fun at the blowhards on cable TV and the state of American Journalism and how we shouldn t trust as many people who have cameras pointed at them as we do Things take on a different tone bodies start piling up and a darkness slips in to the book This also brings in Belson and his new boss who s still not a fan of Spenser About the same time Connie starts to waver in her conviction that she wants her money back and Welles punished Spenser naturally doesn t care and plows ahead Hawk is able to connect Spenser with some mercenaries that travel in the same circles as Welles and the chase is on Eventually the action moves from Boston and its environs to Georgia Which means that Teddy Sapp is going to make an appearanceAll the characters were great I would ve liked some time with some of Welles co conspirators in Boston I think it d have helped round out our picture of his crimes But it s a minor complaint We also got plenty of interaction with his Georgia based colleagues Even the characters that show up for a page or two as witnesses to the crimes were interesting it s the little things like those that add so much It was nice to see Teddy Sapp again too He was the best part of Hugger Mugger faint praise I realize The Hawk material was very good maybe Atkins best use of the character yetI fully expect that people are going to spend a lot of time talking about the ending it didn t feel like a Parker ending That said it felt like an ending that pre A Catskill Eagle Parker might have tried It was satisfying don t misunderstand it s just not the kind of ending that Parker employed Honestly there were two other perfectly acceptable places to end the book and if not for the progress bar at the bottom of my screen I might have believed that thee ending was earlier and eually strongNow because Atkins and the Parker estate aren t stupid there are certain characters that you just know are safe no matter what shenanigans that they ve let Atkins and Coleman get away with when it comes to killing off long term supporting characters But there was a definite feeling of peril when it comes to name redacted and name redacted Sure I knew they d live to be read about another day but I wondered how healthy they d be in the meantimeThis is sharply written as usual Atkins knows what he s doing in this series or anything else a great mix of character moments and plot Spenser s voice is strong as are the voices of the other regulars It was just a pleasure to read through and through Let me leave you with one snippet that is could ve come from an early 80 s Spenser just as easily today s a voice like this is enough reason to read the book the rest is just gravy and there s plenty of gravy I returned with sore legs back to my seat on the steps I spent the next fifteen minutes watching women of all ages sizes and colors walk past me I liked the way most women walked I liked the way they dressed And talked and smelled I was pretty damn sure I was a fan of women in general Did this make me a sexist or a feminist Or somewhere in between
