I was really pleased to be given this book to review as I'd previously read a few of the Spenser novels by Parker and enjoyed them. Wonderland was written by Ace Atkins following Parker's death in 2010, and as such, I was not expecting this book to have exactly the same kind of witty repartee as the others.
It was a good story; Spenser as good as ever, but there was something really disappointing about this book that I can't quite put my finger on. Something lacking or not quite right.
The characters were interesting, the prose descriptive and gritty, but this one didn't do it for me. 3/5 stars.
Thanks to the Real Readers team for sending me a review copy.
