    Not Up To Spenser Quality

    Hundred Dollar Baby" lacks the impact of the hard right hook I have came to enjoy in the early Spenser novels. Spenser has become old and predictable, nowhere near the Spenser of "Godwulf Manuscript." Let him take his well earned retirement with Susan. The plot was as predictable as a drive on an urban highway at rush hour. The culprit was known from the moment the crime was discovered. The recurring characters are stale as month old bread or this cliche.

    Not up to Spencer standards

    Having read every Spencer and Jesse Stone novel, this Parker effort was way below the norm. Lots of characters, poorly developed. Even Susan was disjointed, lacked focus and was difficult to follow. Phsyco babble in lieu of the usual insightful speculation. Please, no more 'I went to Harvard'. Maybe time for no more Susan. Page after page I waited for it to take shape and flow smoothly. Alas, I waited in vain. Even the normally crisp and pleasing banter with Hawk was prolonged and often boring. What was the point with Tony and Ty Bop and Cholo and others but to keep their names alive.The whole thing felt like a disinterested effort to meet a publishing committment. We need better from our favorite sleuth.
