THE BOXER AND THE SPY, the second juvenile fiction title by veteran mystery novelist Parker, taps into many of the first-time feelings experienced by adolescents trying to find out who they are. Narrator Scott Brick plays each part with an emotional gravity that forces listeners to care and root for the characters. The shy, poetic boy's death by suicide just doesn't feel right to wannabe boxer Terry Novak and his could-be girlfriend, Abby, so they start to dig deeper into the illegal steroids trade in their small town, ruffling feathers and falling in love. Brick matches Parker's perfect pacing and pressure-packed action scenes, proving once again he's a "golden voice" to follow. R.O. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2009]
