Spenser lovers will not miss this one

Sure, a lot of this is like a lot of other Spenser books but that's why I like it. It is like spending time with a good old friend. Parker could always write dialog that makes you laugh out loud and there are bits in here that are as good as they get. I grew up in the Brighton Neighborhood of Boston and Parker gets Boston right like so few authors do.

If you have not read other Spenser books you might want to start with an earlier one. If you like Parker, get a copy and read it.

The last of a great author.

This was short but I have read every Spenser and was not dissapointed in this one, if you are new to Robert B. Parker start with the Spenser series number 1 (The Godwulf Manuscript) and work your way up. There are not many authors that can say so much with so few words....

If you like mysteries with some humor, not to much gore, and characters that become like family this series is for you

    Review of Nook Sample

    I just downloaded the sample, paged through to the start, and see that I will get a scant 2 pages of large type of the book

    Not enough to evaluate at all.

    I will buy it, but I'll have to decide if Nook or paper
