This is a Spenser novel. Back in Boston. Back with Hawk and with the lovely Susan. You either love Spenser, his compatriots and all his baggage, or you do not. I do. He is one of a kind - give Spenser a chance; you might grow to love him too (warts and all).

I enjoyed this novel as Spencer and the detective for the other spouse share information on each of their assignments, without any conflict of interest.

Classic Parker and an enjoyable read. My only beef about this one is that there are too many characters with similar sounding yuppie names that I kept losing track of who and what. Kind of like an Agatha Christie but not nearly as boring.

If you enjoyed the tv program Spencer for Hire. You will enjoy this book as the show was based on the books. I enjoyed it very much.

This is a great series and Spenser and his cohorts are part of a well developed series of novels. There is great detail about each character (even the dog) and they become even more meaningful as one continues to read other novels in the series. This detail extends to the location of the novel, usually in Boston or proximity, which also provides continuity to the reader. Great literature, perhaps not, but I can't wait to pick up another novel, that I haven't read, in the series.

This was the first Robert Parker book I read and I really enjoyed it! The main character had such a great sense of humor and well written--and I love a mystery that is unpredictable.
