Well, I'm looking forward to POTSHOT, and am confident that I'll enjoy it. But, once I do so, I'll add it to the pile of previous Spenser's, for eventual sale/trade, before I move.

However I'll keep the two Jesse Stone novels -- which I find considerably more, err, substantial, than the Spenser canon -- and faunch for more to come....

[I have, but have not yet read, FAMILY HONOR, which (I believe) was more-or-less written on assignment for a series of proposed tv movies. Does anyone have an opinion on it -- undoubtedly somewhere in the Archives it's been mention -- or the status ... if any ... of the tv tie-in?]
