This is the first Spenser novel! It's fun & a quick read. Parker does a great job describing his characters - particularly their clothing - and since this one was written in 1973, it's a real flashback for me!

The first Spenser book. As Spenser is an old friend by now, it was interesting to go back. The man really hasn't changed. No Hawk, No Susan but the same quick dialogue and action.

I love reading the Spenser books out of order. I've read more than half of them and finally got around to this, the first in the series. Spenser is still Spenser, but it's nice to be able to go back to a time before Susan Silverman. It breaks the monotony and adds another dimension to the Spenser character.

A friend recommended Robert B. Parker's SPENCER series to me, and all I can say is 'How come I didn't learn of this neat mystery writer until now?!!' THE GODWULF MANUSCRIPT is really good who-dunnit which introduces a gumshoe (private eye) like no other.

From back cover: Spenser had earned his degree in the school of hard knocks, so he was ready when a Boston university hired him to recover a rare, stolen manuscript. He was hardly surprised that his only clue was a radical student with four bullets in his chest.
The cops were ready to throw the book at the pretty blonde coed whose prints were all over the murder weapon but Spenser wasn't there for easy answers. The lovely lady offered a cram course in campus love--but first there was the question of who had splashed blood on the ivory tower, some very heavy homework, and the grim possibility that, if he didn't finish his assignment soon, he could end up marked 'D'--for dead.

A good quick read. Not as good as his later books but still good. It was a good intro to Spenser and I can definitely see how it led to other books in the series.
