4 Stars. Ace Atkins, Robert B. Parker's successor in this great series, is commenting through "Kickback" on private prisons, a growing phenomenon in the United States. Spenser is hired by a woman whose son has been sent to one of these juvenile facilities north of Boston in the hard-as-nails town of Blackburn. Is this just a wrongly convicted young man? He set up a humourous but fake, and certainly this side of criminal, Twitter account for his high-school principal. Or is there something else going on? Possible judicial corruption? In collusion with the mob? Spenser and Hawk spend some time in the Tampa area: palm trees, bikinis, patios and beer. What can I say? I enjoyed the mental image of the scene. I reached for the next adventure just a few days later! "Kickback" is one of the 4,000 or so titles in my "A Basic Mystery and Thriller Compilation" on Goodreads. (September 2017)

I don't care for hapless, poor children as victims. Hawk's role is marginally and minimally defined. There was no point to running back and forth between Boston & Florida. Only the ending raises the score to acceptable. 4 of 10 stars
