One Of My favorite Episodes!!
16 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very tense episode of Spenser For Hire, that had Spenser and Hawk investigating the murder of Marcus Carlisle, and found out that a mobster was mixed with the family and the murder.

Very special about this episode was Hawk's and Spenser's almost being killed in a snow bank shootout I would rank this episode high on the list of Spenser Episodes and is highly recommended One of the best of the first season, which was terrific

The mobster in this episode was rare and has only appeared in a handful of TV shows. The supporting cast is terrific and also contains supporting cast members that went on to better shows
