Spenser, the intrepid Boston sleuth, heads west to aid a damsel in distress in Potshot, Arizona. But all is not as it seems in Potshot. Spenser is called upon to hire a band of thugs to rid the town of a renegade gang. Reader Joe Mantegna, who plays Spenser in the A&E movies, gives vocal identity to the splendid band of rogues Spenser recruits. Wiseguys and tough guys from Boston, Las Vegas, LA, and Georgia join Spenser and his sidekick, Hawk, for the fight to the finish. Spenser books are as much about character as about plot. Mantegna ably captures the spirit and emotion of the people, as well as the ambiance of the place and the tension of the predicament. In the end, Spenser retains his virtue, and, true to the Old West, he and Hawk ride off into the sunrise in their rented Explorer. T.J.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
