Widow's Walk

Widow's Walk - Robert B. Parker The first Spenser novel I didn't enjoy. The plot crawled, the characters all seemed to be barely sketches, and the action when it happened, especially at the end, seemed rushed and not well described. That's two below average Spenser's in a row (imo), with this one following after Potshot.
