classic Parker dialogue and story line.
Fan of Robert Parker. This is a different character for him, Boston P.I. Sunny Randal... different character but alot like Spencer. Good read.
"Boston P.I. Sunny Randall returns to face a trio of multilayered cases, in a mesmerizing new novel from today's foremost writer of American crime fiction."
I love the Sunny series. The characters are great. The plot is good, but the rapport with the characters is what makes this series.
Good, good, good read. Had not read this author before, but I sure enjoyed his style. I will look for others by him. I know you will enjoy the characters in this book.
I enjoyed reading about Sunny, Rosie, Richie, Skip and all.
When radical feminist Mary Lou Goddard hires Sunny to protect her from a stalker, Sunny accepts the case with some reluctance. After all, Goddard detests Rosie, Sunny's bull terrier, canine vacuum, and stakeout companion. It doesn't take Sunny long to track down and confront Lawrence Reeves, a particularly pestilential human being. But pestilence is no excuse for murder, so when Reeves and Gretchen Crane, one of Goddard's colleagues, are both found dead, Sunny dives into the murky waters of Boston's prostitution industry, where Reeves was a client and Gretchen was trying to unionize the workers. Politics and sexuality can be a nasty tangle, and the unraveling threads lead straight to mobster Tony Marcus's door. Tony may appreciate Sunny's sharp wit, but business is business: interference can--and does--lead to a bullet with her name on it. And as if all of this weren't enough, Sunny's sister and her best friend are in the throes of nasty divorces. Luckily, the leap from PI to marital counselor is well within Sunny's abilities.
I polished this one off in one day. Another fun, fast, entertaining read. Love Parker's snarky dialogue. I've got the next one on my night table to start tonight.
