Review: Robert B. Parker's Wonderland by Ace Atkins

Robert B. Parker's Wonderland: The New Spenser Novel - Ace Atkins

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.
