   COLD SERVICE - ROBERT B. PARKER

Spenser's sidekick Hawk is recovering from a very serious injury after he was shot and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie. Hawk is out for revenge and Spenser is with him every step of the way.

Hawk is also determined that he will see that a trust fund is set up for Luther's son and he will be sure the funds come from the mob that hit Luther.

Spenser and Hawk find that the Ukrainian mob has almost total control of the town of Marshport and they set out to find the people responsible for Hawk's injuries and Luther's death.

Meanwhile, Susan tries to be supportive but Hawk's Cecile is having problems coming to terms with Hawk's recovery and desire for revenge.

The book was a fast read but one I could have easily skipped over. I didn't find it to be on the level of other Spenser and Hawk novels.
