** spoiler alert ** Just when you think it's gonna be simple, he layers on levels of complication and intrigue. Just when you think it's going to be morally bankrupt, he muddies the ethical waters with new levels of justification and necessity. Once again Parker has Spenser (or at least Susan) struggle with where the line is between righteous knight and violent thug. 'Cold Service' features Spenser's best friend Hawk more than any other Parker book. But is he fighting Afghan warlords? Heroin pushers? Mob bosses? Or is he just in it for revenge?
