"Robert B. Parker's iconic and irresistible PI Sunny Randall is back, and the stakes are higher than ever as she races to protect her ex-husband--and his Mafia family--from the vengeful plan of a mysterious rival. Sunny Randall is "on" again with Richie, the ex-husband she never stopped loving and never seemed to be able to let go, despite her discomfort with his Mafia connections. When Richie is shot and nearly killed, Sunny is dragged into the thick of his family's business as she searches for answers and tries to stave off a mob war. But as the bullets start flying in Boston's mean streets, Sunny finds herself targeted by the deranged mastermind of the plot against the Burke family, whose motive may be far more personal than she could have anticipated.."-- Provided by publisher.

I’ve read Robert Parker’s Sunny Randall series from the beginning. Mike Lupica is no Robert Parker. He does a fair job of mimicking the characters, but never quite gets the easy flow of conversation right. I really disliked the way he shifted Sunny from smart & capable & tenacious to arrogant, stubborn, & foolhardy. And I really didn’t enjoy the whole gangsters at war West Side Story schtick. I’ll read the next one, but if it’s this bad, I’m through with the series.

This is a bad book. I've read everything in Parker's lexicon, including everything put out under his name since his death. Sunny Randall was always the step child of his characters and that continues with the Parker estate relegating her to the worst of the stand in writers in Mike Lupica. Part of the appeal of Parker's work is the fact that they were an easy read. I finished most in 2-3 days. That continues here because no intellect is needed! The plot is contrived and easily figured out. The dialog is elementary and awkward. Lupica thinks every character has to have a quick one-liner at hand. If you don't know anything about Lupica you will soon find out that he hates guns, the NRA, Republicans and especially Donald Trump. I won't be any more Randall books if they are penned by Lupica. I see he is writing Jesse Stone now so I will need to cast that character aside as well.

I was looking forward to reading this book, I have read every book by Robert Parker and liked them. They were fun and entertaining. This book seems to be trying too hard to be clever, and this book has too much vulgar language for me. I also didn't like the politics added to this book. I don't plant to read any other books by this author.

I enjoyed the return of Sunny Randall. My memory isn’t that great, so I appreciated that the author reminded us who the characters all were. Story line was good as well. I’m not as smart as all the reviewers who claim to have figured everything out way before the end of the story, because I didn’t & I’m not ashamed to admit it.
