Steady. After more than three dozen Spenser novels, the character remains steady and reliable in the last one written by the late Robert B. Parker, Sixkill. The title refers to a character Spenser takes under his wing, Zebulon Sixkill, a Native American bodyguard for a client accused of rape and murder. After getting a whupping from Spenser, Sixkill asks him for help, and as fans would expect, Spenser obliges. Moderate pacing and finely written dialog make reading this novel a pleasure. The publishers plan to continue the franchise with a new writer, but in many ways this is the finale.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
