When Spenser's closest ally, Hawk, is brutally injured and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie, Spenser embarks on an epic journey to rehabilitate his friend in body and soul. Hawk, always proud, has never been dependent on anyone. Now he is forced to make connections: to accept the medical technology that will ensure his physical recovery, and to reinforce the tenuous emotional ties he has to those around him. Spenser quickly learns that the Ukrainian mob is responsible for the hit, but finding a way into their tightly knit circle is not nearly so simple. Their total control of the town of Marshport, from the bodegas to the police force to the mayor's office, isn't just a sign of rampant corruption-it's a form of arrogance that only serves to ignite Hawk's desire to get even. As the body count rises, Spenser is forced to employ some questionable techniques and even more questionable hired guns while redefining his friendship with Hawk in the name of vengeance.

Hawk kann es nicht auf sich sitzen lassen, dass man ihn bei einem Job als Bodyguard schwer verletzt und den Buchmacher und dessen Familie, die er beschützen sollte, ermordet hat. Er muss die Verhältnisse wieder zurechtrücken. Deshalb bittet er Spenser um Hilfe. Gemeinsam begeben sie sich auf die Suche nach dem Killer und dessen Hintermännern. Dabei decken sie erstaunliche Geschäftsverbindungen zwischen dem Bürgermeister einer Kleinstadt, der ukrainischen Mafia und skrupellosen Verbrechern auf. Sie alle sind in zwielichtige Geschäfte verstrickt, aber was hat das mit dem Mord an dem Buchmacher zu tun? Genau die Art von Problemen, die Spenser und Hawk nicht ruhen lassen. Auch dann nicht, als die Hölle losbricht. DEUTSCHE ERSTAUSGABE (Die amerikanische Originalausgabe erschien unter dem Titel »Cold Service«, 2005. (Übersetzt von Emanuel Bergmann)

Commentators have noted the extraordinary impact of popular culture on legal practice, courtroom proceedings, police departments, and government as a whole, and it is no exaggeration to say that most people derive their basic understanding of law from cultural products. Movies, television programs, fiction, children’s literature, online games, and the mass media typically influence attitudes and impressions regarding law and legal institutions more than law and legal institutions themselves. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives enhances the appreciation of the interaction between popular culture and law by underscoring this interaction’s multinational and international features. Two dozen authors from nine countries invite readers to consider the role of law-related popular culture in a broad range of nations, socio-political contexts, and educational environments. Even more importantly, selected contributors explore the global transmission and reception of law-related cultural products and, in particular, the influence of assorted works and media across national borders and cultural boundaries. The circulation and consumption of law-related popular culture are increasing as channels of mass media become more complex and as globalization runs its uncertain course. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives adds to the critical understanding of the worldwide interaction of popular culture and law and encourages reflection on the wider implications of this mutual influence across both time and geography.
