Robert B. A stupendous addition to the series. Atkins is bringing his own energy and strengths to Parker's series. Cheap Shot is Spenser, by the book. Cheap Shot concerns itself with the kidnapping of a superstar linebacker, Kinjo Heywood's, son and the tangled web of red herrings and underworld creeps that Spenser uncovers. Parker's Cheap Shot book. The worst Ace Atkins' "Parker" novel for sure. for all the negative reasons. write the story, not sure where it will go or who "dunnit" until you get there. it kept going, and going, and going. I think Atkins might have been paid per character as he kept introducing new and returning The worst Ace Atkins' "Parker" novel for sure.

Cheap Shot – Another Brilliant Spenser NovelAce Atkins has once again entered the realm as the writer who has taken Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels and with Cheap Shot written a book that is comparable to anything Parker wrote. I would go as far as to say you cannot tell this is another author writing Atkins has picked up where Parker left Spenser and the hardnosed Boston PI continues unabashed.
Spenser-his first name is never officially revealed-is a fictional character in a series of detective novels initially by the American mystery writer Robert B. Parker and later by Ace Atkins. He is also featured in a television series (Spenser: For Hire) and a series of TV movies based on the novels. Spenser was born and grew up in Laramie, Wyoming and is a Boston private eye in the mold of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, a smart-mouthed tough guy with a heart of gold.
The iconic, tough-but-tender Boston PI Spenser returns in an outstanding new addition to the New York Times-bestselling series from author Ace Atkins. Kinjo Heywood is one of the New England Patriots' marquee players-a hard-nosed linebacker who's earned his reputation as one of the toughest guys in the league. When off-field violence repeatedly lands Heywood in the news, his slick agent hires Spenser to find the men who he says have been harassing his client. Heywood's troubles seem to be tied to a nightclub shooting from two years earlier.

Parker's Cheap Shot. Parker was the author of seventy books, including the legendary Spenser detective series, the novels featuring police chief Jesse Stone, and the acclaimed Virgil Cole-Everett Hitch westerns, as well as the Sunny Randall novels. Atkins’s gift for mimicking the late Robert B. Parker could lead to a long run, the the delight of Spenser devotees Robert B. Winner of the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award and long considered the undisputed dean of American crime fiction, he died in January 2010.
Evaluation: I listened to the audio version of the book, read by the famous and very competent actor Joe Mantegna.
Nevertheless, this story just didn’t grab me. It wasn’t very suspenseful, and the supporting characters were one dimensional and wooden: Heywood’s first wife was too beautiful and responsible; the second wife was too much of a drunk and a floozy; and the kidnapped boy was too perfect.
