Crackling dialogue. plenty of action and expert writing.
The 8th Spenser ... this one takes place in Los Angeles and the Hollywood environment is a perfect setting for Spenser's wise-cracking, sometimes sarcastic humor. Very enjoyable ... as they all are!
Spenser is in for a lot of trouble in this book, and barely makes it out alive.
"The best new private eye in fiction since Raymond Chandler." -- Dan Wakefield
"As tough as they come and spiked with a touch of real class.." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Lots of action, clever dialogue, and sharp plotting, and if you've never met the irrepressible Spenser, a Savage Place is the perfect introduction." --Book-of-the-Month Club News
"The most gripping Spenser novel of them all." -- Publishers Weekly
Spenser with all of his wit and charm. Very good book
Hi, I really liked this book - Robert B. Parker is my favorite author - his books are first rate and this one didn't disappoint.
Good! But not his best. I have enjoyed all of Parker's books.
Love all the Spenser books!
