Where is it?
Summary
In the latest thriller featuring the legendary Boston PI, Spenser heads to the City of Angels to meet old friends and new enemies in a baffling missing person case that might shake Tinseltown to its core.

Gabby Leggett left her Boston family with dreams of making it big as a model/actress in Hollywood. Two years later, she disappears from her apartment. Her family, former boyfriend, friends--and the police--have no idea where she is and no leads. Leggett's mother hires Spenser to find her, with help of his former apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, now an L.A. private eye.

Spenser barely has time to unpack before the trail leads to a powerful movie studio boss, the Armenian mob, and a shadowy empowerment group some say might be a dangerous cult.

It's soon clear that Spenser and Sixkill may be outgunned this time, and series favorites Chollo and Bobby Horse ride to the rescue to provide backup. From the mansions of Beverly Hills to the lawless streets of a small California town, Spenser will need to watch his step. In Hollywood, all that glitters isn't gold. And not all those who wander are lost.

Booklist Review
Gabby Leggett moved to Boston to L.A. to become an actress, but, after a couple of commercial spots, she dropped out of sight. Gabby's mother hires Spenser to find her daughter. Once on the West Coast, Spenser connects with his protégé, Zebulon ""Z"" Sixkill, a Cree Indian and successful PI. Their first contact is Gabby's former boyfriend, who has a key to Gabby's apartment, which Spenser discovers has been tossed. As Spenser and Z continue to retrace Gabby's life, the trail points to a self-help group that promises enlightenment. Sounds great, but there are also indications that the leader of the group has a proclivity for young women like Gabby. Spenser and Z become hypersuspicious when a couple of thugs attempt to stop their investigation. Gunfire ensues. Atkins continues to do a fine job of extending the life of Robert B. Parker's characters and capturing the tone of the Spenser series. Parker would be proud of Atkins' wise-guy patter; the violence is exciting and nicely choreographed; and Atkins' plots are complex enough to hold readers' interest yet do not get in the way of the suspense.--Wes Lukowsky Copyright 2019 Booklist
