Current events in plot brought the story to life. It was interesting to read a Spenser novel again. I would guess the 80s or 90 s would have been the last time. I once heard Parker interviewed on NPR. I’m sure I read several of his books at the time. I enjoyed this enough I’ll have to start over. There is there Boston scenery, his girlfriend Susan, and Hawke. It of a story of murder, high finance, jealousy, and lithium batteries.

Mike Lupica's first attempt at a Spenser novel holds up well. A worthy successor to Ace Atkins who had been carrying the Spenser torch since Robert Parker's death.

Review:

There're no two ways about it, 12-year-old Michael Arroyo can pitch. An undeniable phenom, this Cuban exile will take his team, the Clippers, out of the Bronx and into the Little League World Series...if he can keep the biggest secret of his life. Michael's father died a few months before the novel opens, leaving Michael and his brother Carlos, who is only 17, on their own. With no legal status and no family in the country, the Arroyo boys have to keep their heads down until September, when Carlos turns 18. The more Michael pitches, however, the more attention he attracts. As the competition heats up, tempers and jealousies flare until a group of rival coaches demand to see Michael's birth certificate. They're convinced he's older than 12, and he's convinced that that piece of paper never left Havana when his father did. Sidelined, Michael is desperately looking for a way back into the game he loves, all the while trying to figure out a girl who is more than she appears. Lupica keeps the plot moving throughout the novel and uses well-developed, interesting characters to maintain a relatively low cliché count (especially for a sports story). The complicated nature of illegal immigration is rendered in a way which makes it immediate to Michael and Carlos, and understandable to the reader. Given the current political climate, this novel proves itself still timely seven years after publication. Recommended.
