Love it! Positive, upbeat. Spencer and Hawk are the the ultimate private eyes. Great Read! Two thumbs up.
A hard-boiled Boston private eye - SPENCER - with a chivalric code discovers that college basketball can be a killer sport. With talent comes graft. Spencer battles to salvage the soul of an arrogant young athlete - even if he has to go to hell and back to do it!
Private eye Spenser investigates a case of corruption at Taft University. Thankfully Parker has given up creating characters so stereotyped as to be unbelievable. His strongest point is plotting and this one is wonderful.
I love nearly everything this author has ever written. Robert B. Parker is the master of witty dialogue and great characters. Spenser is a likeable tough-talking Galahad disguised as a street-smart ex-boxer detective, and Parker is a really fantastic writer, very subtle, who can say a LOT with just a LITTLE! You can't lose with a Spenser novel. Try the new Jesse Stone or Sunny Randall novels as well, though they are a bit formulaic (Sunny is a very estrogen amped version of Spenser), they're still worth your time! You won't be sorry!
I really enjoyed reading this book.
Get ready to be smacked in the mouth! Spencer and Hawk at their peak!
The 16th Spenser. The plot for this one is collegiate basketball and gambling. Addresses several social issues in a nice way - thought-provoking without beating you over the head with it.
Gotta love Spenser!
Spencer and Susan are back. This one seems to have a sports (basketball) theme.
This is a Book Club Edition.
