Storyline

As a favor to his longtime lover Dr. Susan Silverman, Spenser agrees to investigate the stalking of a theater company director, pro bono. But before he can get started, an actor is killed by an arrow in the middle of a play. Now that there's a real-life murder to investigate, Spenser and Hawk, get to do what they do best--even if it means death threats from the Chinese underworld, being ordered out of town by the tough local police chief, and dodging bullets and crossbows at every turn. By the time they leave the quaint ocean front community, the population has decreased by three, and live theater will never be the same. Written by A&E

Any Spenser is a good Spenser
26 August 2001 | by lynxlexSee all my reviews

I can enjoy pretty much any adaption of a Parker novel and Walking Shadow lends itself pretty well. The major issue for these movies is casting. I'm getting used to Mantegna as Spenser but don't think I'll ever come to terms with Harden as Susan Silverman. I think that in Susan, Parker has created a character that cannot be satisfactorily duplicated. Also, Ernie Hudson is NOT Hawk. I always thought Dennis Haysbert would be a good match. Just an opinion.

All in all, a good effort. Here's hoping A & E keeps putting these out.
