*Starred Review* This last Spenser outing, published after Parker's death, in January 2010, ranks up there with some of his best. Spenser feels responsible for the death of an art-history professor who had hired him for protection only to get blown to bits when a ransom-for-stolen-art drop went awry. Feeling obligated to find who killed his client, Spenser uncovers a foundation committed to returning art stolen by the Nazis to the rightful owners. The manner of the foundation's work is not exactly on the up-and-up. Spenser, whose longtime love, Susan, is Jewish, battles with the question of just how far is too far when trying to right past wrongs. His investigation also brings up some surprising information about the professor. It's hard to imagine anyone else voicing the part of Spenser (though others have tried); Mantegna's gruff, streetwise delivery perfectly evokes the tough Boston PI. When Spenser waxes poetic (which he does often), Mantegna sounds positively sublime, and when he starts mixing it up with hoodlums (which he does even more often), Mantegna strikes fear in listeners' ears. These extremes in his personality are part of the reason Parker's crime novels have endured year after year. With Mantegna at the microphone, it's hard to imagine a better audio experience for Spenser fans and newcomers alike. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
