When I finished Robert B Parker s SIxkill last year it was a sad moment as author Parker had died in 2010 and this was billed as the last Spenser novel I have been a fan of Parker s Boston detective for the life of the series which began in 1973 and stretched to 40 novels Like any fan relationship mine had it s ups and downs Parker wrote to a formula no denying that but it was a witty dialogue driven scenario The books were sweet confections not too long and always entertaining They were in general also excellent examples of that aging genre the private eye novel Parker did a PhD on the detective novel Late last year I read that the Parker estate had contracted to have the series continued and they had chosen the improbably monikered Ace Atkins Hope springing eternal I looked up Mr Atkin s credentials and discovered he was the author of some well reagarded noirish novels Then I waited for the results Last week the first fruit of this partnership emerged the unwieldy title of Robert B Parker s Lullaby I understand the promotional need for that so on to the book The only urgent uestion is does Mr Atkins succeed in his task and to that I answer yes with some typical fan uibbles Lullaby is a typical and this is a compliment Spenser novel A larger cast of characters than usual show up but they are all members of the long Spenser backstory Spenser s famous uips and the banter with his friend and partner Hawk are in abundance And for the fans also present is Susan Silverman Detectives Belsen and uirk various Boston low life hoodlums and Pearl the wonder dog The story is classic and well within the series s theme of justice reclaimed My uibbles are few 1 the book goes on a bit longer than necessary perhaps due to that large cast of characters 2 Spenser seems to spend time than usual describing his wardrobe and 3 some of the dialog not all but some seems a little stilted One thing I loved is that Boston shows up in descriptive mode than was usual in Parker s books Perhaps this was because Parker lived in the city and it was backdrop for him Atkins makes some places important to the plot particularly Southie and as an ex Bostonian I loved that So Spenser lives and a fine thing it is

Pushed off reading this for a long time as I wasn t sure whether I needed any non Parker Spenser in my life Truth is that the last 15 20 Spenser books were essentially self parodies written to a fairly strict template and I pretty much loved them all so what did I have to lose Turns out very little This reads almost exactly like a late period Spenser book All the tropes and in jokes show up as expected and the jokes are just as cheap and the action is just as sharp There is absolutely no need for me to read any of these but I may anyway because they re fun Spenser is fun Hawk is fun Susan is fun Weirdly my favourite thing about this was that it was around 120 pages longer than Parker s last few books I still read the whole thing in an afternoon there was just to enjoy than usual

Spenser holds an odd but prominent position in my landscape of beloved characters Usually my favorites are a motley collection of the damaged disreputable and deadly Spenser s my exception the genuinely heroic character I genuinely like who comes across successfully as both a real character in his own right and a somewhat aspirational figure for the rest of us No surprise then that my favorite book in the series is the odd Early Autumn where the plot is feather light and the focus is all on how Spenser lives his life At his best Spenser s practical idealism humor and low key Renaissance Man like ability to do a lot of things reasonably but not ridiculously well made him one of the most appealing first person narrators out there But later Robert Parker books coasted on Spenser s charms and I remember them mostly as a handful of one liners surrounded by a lot of flab with Spenser s distinctiveness getting buriedAce Atkins s Lullaby on the other hand reminds me of the finals week where to cope with exams I read a Spenser novel every day It s brisk and funny but with enough moral weight to give it depth and shadowsMattie a hard edged fourteen year old from Southie hires Spenser for the steep price of a dozen donuts to look into her mother s murder from a few years back She s convinced that the man who was convicted for it was an innocent hard luck schmuck in the wrong place at the wrong time especially since she herself saw her mother being forced into a car by two entirely different men Spenser is less sure but he admires the girl s grit I like to think I would have recognized the True Grit homage but Kemper got there first so I ll never know for sure and wants to help get her some closure which a surprisingly tolerable Susan warns may be both difficult and temporarySpenser s relationship with Mattie is the heart of the novel and Atkins does some interesting things with it He takes her under his wing like he did Paul but he can t give her the same things if anything she s too self reliant Paul had to make himself grow up Mattie has to if she can grow back into childhood at least for a little while It s poignant without being overplayed and Mattie s combination of vulnerability and toughness makes good use of Susan s psychological skills as she s able to help Spenser dissect his own feelings about Mattie and it might mean for her to move forward All of this gets neatly played in a minor chord with the Broz family what does it mean to always be the kid in contrast to your fatherThere s good material for Hawk here too as Atkins trims some of the chumminess away from his partnership with Spenser and fits in a dynamic that crackles rather than comforts view spoilerHawk s conversation with Mattie about his mother s murder especially his flat admission of the pleasure he took in revenge is a particularly great moment and one that s both dramatic and restrained it s all just information he s passing on to her and it s a conversation between the two of them that leaves Spenser temporarily on the outside hide spoiler
