Very good book
Another interesting "spencer" mystery.
Emotionally tense...gripping...vintage hard-core Spenser. The secrets of Spenser's past revealed at last.
Spenser fans will be thrilled - and Hawk makes an appearance.
Spenser series... one of the best in this series...
.....Fast-paced and complex in emotion and suspense, PASTIME is Parker and Spenser at their most revealing and resonant....... Playing time is 6 hours , 4 cassettes. I particularly enjoyed the reading by David Dukes.
A sequel to Parker's "Early Autumn" this novel tells a constantly surprising story of past crimes and present dangers.
Love all the Spencer novels!
