Spenser and Hawk search for the son-in-law of a Boston crime boss; trips to Las Vegas and investigations of organized crime ensue. Regrettably, Burt Reynolds’s performance doesn’t match the quality of the story. His vocal characterizations of Spenser are fine, but his interpretation of Hawk seems an odd choice, and a couple of his thugs sound very much like a bad Bogart impression. Reynolds captures the wry tone of the novel. But his poor vocal characterizations for secondary figures ultimately cancel out the good points of his performance.
