On the front cover it says "almost impossible to put down". I disagree with the 'almost'. I could not put it down, period. I read it in one night. I've read and enjoyed a lot of the Spenser books but this one snared me in.
This is the 15th Spenser ... more of a psychological thriller than some of his other ones ... which is great, because it involves Susan a little more, as well as Hawk, Quirk & Belson. A quick and fun read!
Always a good time when Spenser comes out to play!
Parker's Spenser books are kind of like buttered popcorn -- there may not be a lot of nourishment in them, but they are sure fun. In this quick read, the search for a serial killer leads disturbingly to Susan Silverman, and it's Spenser to the rescue once again.
a really good murder mystery
Someone is murdering black women, leaving semen on their bodies and leaving a red rose . The police think they have the guy.
But then someone leaves a red rose in Susan's office and Spencer knows that the Red Rose Killer is still at large.
Now it's up to Spencer , Hawk, Quirk and Belson to protect Susan, find the killer and prove the police dept. have the wrong guy.
A very entertaining read with Spencer at his wisecracking and Sherlockian best !
As always, Spencer gets his man. Love the interaction with Hawk and Spencer's witty comments.
a murderer is killing women and it leads Spencer to a psychiatrist's office. Not just any, but to his girlfriend Susan. now he must find out which one of her patients it is before it is to late.
If you like the show "Sencer for Hire", you will love this book.
