    Columnist Mike Lupica becomes the fourth author to take over one of Parker's character franchises (Spenser, Jesse Stone, Cole and Hitch, Sunny Randall). It just demonstrates how prolific -- and how good -- Parker was. Lupica's first take on Sunny Randall is a good one. The action...

    Was good to see some of my old friends again but just didn?t have the feeling of the homecoming I had hoped it would be. Hoping it was just nerves from first one but it felt a little too like he was trying to hard and Parker made it all feel so effortless. ...

    (3). Another reincarnation of a Robert B. Parker franchise, how interesting. And even more so, as it turns out that Mike Lupica was a friend of Parker's. Better yet for us readers, Lupica has Parker's style down, with just a little more interpretation and feel to make it his own. This ...

    I do like the Sunny Randall character. RB Parker's Sunny books always seemed lighter and with less substance than Jesse Stone books and that hasn't changed. Sunny is Sunny, she does her thing and not much else happens. ...

    The estate of the late Robert B. Parker has commissioned talented authors to continue his Spenser, Jesse Stone, Virgil Cole & Everett Hitch, and Sunny Randall series. After being dormant since 2007, Sunny Randall is back with Mike Lupica at the helm. Like the other authors continui...

    An enjoyable return for Sunny as she investigates as to who has put out a hit on her former father-in-law. The only drawbacks: Spike is not believable, and her "on again, off again" romance with her former husband and current boyfriend. The action is good, the dialogue is taut and she ...

    I swore I would not read any of the Robert B. Parker series after his death. However, the three lastest pastiches arrived for Scribe Award judging. I had to put my personal feelings aside to read this and I was curious to see Lupica's adult prose style. He certainly nails Parker's s...

    ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) An expanded version of this originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- Since we saw her last, Sunny has had to move, Richie (her ex-) has gotten another divorce (giving them the chance to date or whatever you want to call it) and has replaced ...

    Reed Farrel Coleman did an excellent job of seamlessly taking over the Jesse Stone series. Mike Lupica didn't do the same with Sunny Randall. The wit fell flat, the story was boring and drawn out and while Sunny has always had somewhat of a "sailor's mouth", it was over and above this ...

    This read like a Spenser novel since many of the characters crossed over and the setting for a good part of the story. There was a lot of back and forth and good old fashioned "goombah" dialogue in this story. It was full of action, intrigue, and a few double crosses to boot. Mik...

    Robert B Parker died in 2010. Mr. Parker was the creator of several memorable series characters, such as Spenser, Jesse Stone, Cole & Hitch, and Sunny Randall, who last appeared in 2007's Spare Change. Unlike Parker's other series characters, her adventures were never continued. No...

    Of all the main characters in the late Robert B. Parker's books - among them Spenser, Jesse Stone and Susan Silverman - I'd have to say Sunny Randall has been my least favorite (although I suspect that's mostly because I wasn't happy back when she had a fling with Jesse). After reading...

    Mike Lupica stands in for Robert B. Parker to breathe new life into the late author's Sunny Randall character. BLOOD FEUD represents a slight departure from the terse prose that characterized Parker's work. Lupica is a bit more expansive in both plot and style. Still, this is a good ya...

    I am always surprised when a new author takes on one of Robert Parker?s characters and retains the flavor and strength that Parker gave them. Sonny Randall felt like an old friend. Thanks ...

    #7 in the Sunny Randall series (#1 by author Mike Lupica after 6 by series originator Robert B. Parker). This debut entry by author Lupica is a curiosity, he has Parker's snappy dialogue and Boston environment down. Series fans will be pleased to see familiar characters, but here Lupic...

    Mike Lupica does a good job of bringing back Robert B. Parker?s Sunny Randall. She a bit older than the last time we seen her (who isn?t!) and still conflicted over her relationship with ex-husband Richie Burke, but just as determined as ever. Lupica always had a sardonic wit e...

    I hated this book. It was 300 pages of not much happening. I also couldn't keep all the characters straight. I usually love Robert Parker's characters/books, but this time not so much. ...

    First time I heard of author Mike Lupica was through ESPN sports network in the USA. On the program he was so obnoxious that he was dismissed the next day. Little difference between then and this story. 0 of 10 stars ...

    DNF Great job Mike Lupica for ruining a fun character and series! Again, a liberal mouthpiece infuses his disdain for Republicans and Trump into a non political PI series. Lazy lazy writing. All Republicans are white? Give me a break. The liberal elites in the USA mock or ignore...

    I have been reading Robert B. Parker?s ?Spenser? mystery series since the 1980?s when my English professor introduced the first book in the series ?The Godwulf Manuscript? to me and invited me to write a paper comparing and contrasting Spenser with some classic character th...

    Almost a 3 but not quite. Based on previous Parker books this is a difficult book for me to rate or review. Didn?t dislike it but sure was not overly impressed with the writing. Although the story was extremely predictable I somewhat enjoyed the book. Was disappointed in the lack of ...

    Sunny Randall was always one of my favorites of the Robt. B. Parker books -- I was sorry there were only 6 books with her as the heroine. In my opinion, Lupica has done a great job with her, and I hope he continues. There were so many great characters in the book -- besides Sunny -- th...

    An entertaining read, especially for readers who know Boston. Snappy, entertaining dialogue that, after a while, can feel too much like quips spoken from a script. Still, a fun diversion. ...

    When Robert B. Parker died in 2010, his estate placed the responsibility for three of his long running series in the hand of new authors with mixed results. As a fan of Spencer, Jesse Stone and Sunny Randall (never was much for westerns, so I did not follow his Virgil Cole series), I t...

    One of the primary questions that has been asked since Robert B. Parker?s sudden death in 2010 is whether or not someone would take up the reins of his Sunny Randall series. Sunny, a Boston private investigator with an interesting public and private life, appeared to have vanished in...
