Another awesome book in the Spenser series. This is a flawless series, every story is funny, dry-witted, and, (from me), eagerly awaited. If you enjoy hard-boiled detective stories with humor, try this one!
Funny. I'd first read this book seven years ago and bestowed an eight star (of ten) review at that time. Now that I'm a little older and wiser, my reading preferences have changed a bit. Spenser is at his best with Hawk, who isn't present in this novel. I felt Parker dialed it in with regard to the storyline. The best chuckle-worthy line came during the Saratoga horse segment and Spenser's observation of the jockey. Also, twenty-seven books into the series and he's still talking about nailing his girlfriend all the time.
