Sixkill - Robert B. Parker This was the last Spenser novel written by Robert B. Parker, so I may be stretching my rating a tad because of that. But even an average Spenser novel is better than an average novel. Wish it had at least included Hawk somewhere. I'll likely check out some of his other series, but will pass on the Spenser novels that followed his death written by other authors. Any recommendations re his other series / characters would be appreciated.
