I'm still not sure how I feel about this (sorta/kinda like it) but there will be a new Spenser novel out soon. Ace Atkins will be writing the book. The cover will proclaim it as “Robert B. Parker’s Lullaby’’ while billing it as “A Spenser Novel by Ace Atkins.’’
Here's a good article about this that ran in the Boston Globe recently. I'll probably get the book and read it. Interesting if a bit ... well, strange? Weird? What do you think?
