True to the book by Robert B. Parker, a nice cast.
2 October 2000 | by (Sylvania, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is the second adaptation by Parker with this cast of one of his Spenser books. The story is true to the book. The relationships between Spenser and Frank Belson are true to the context of the Spenser book series. The Boston police want to have nothing to do with private detectives, especially an ex-cop fired for insubordination who skates the edge of the law too frequently. Sometimes, though, being within the law has too many restrictions. When Belson's wife is kidnapped, Spenser investigates and finds things are not what they seem.

Mantegna is not nearly as pretty as Robert Urich of the old tv show, but much truer to the character of the pages of the books in thoughts, looks, and deeds. The supporting cast with Marcia Gay Harden as Susan Silverman is also good. Fans of the Spenser books will be pleased. I cannot wait for the next adaptation (I have heard there will be six).
