Description:

When Spenser's closest ally, Hawk, is brutally injured and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie, Spenser embarks on an epic journey to rehabilitate his friend in body and soul. Hawk, always proud, has never been dependent on anyone. Now he is forced to make connections: to accept the medical technology that will ensure his physical recovery, and to reinforce the tenuous emotional ties he has to those around him.

Spenser quickly learns that the Ukrainian mob is responsible for the hit, but finding a way into their tightly knit circle is not nearly so simple. Their total control of the town of Marshport, from the bodegas to the police force to the mayor's office, isn't just a sign of rampant corruption-it's a form of arrogance that only serves to ignite Hawk's desire to get even. As the body count rises, Spenser is forced to employ some questionable techniques and even more questionable hired guns while redefining his friendship with Hawk in the name of vengeance.


My Thoughts:
 
This was a good book if you want to see someone help a friend in need. When Spencer's friend Hawk is wounded Spencer helps his friend through healing from gun shot wounds. And he also helps his friend get the justice he so richly wants. It was a great read. It's not a paranormal by any stretch just a really good mystery for those who read the mystery, suspense genre. Personally I like the Spencer series alot. So I don't mind having this to my collection. And it's worn and beat up as I no longer have the cover on the book!
