    Untold Secrets

    This book was absolutly amazing, just the way that the author Robert Parker told and portrayed every character. I liked the way that he withheld so many secrets about the characters and then relaesed the information that he had at the strangest times throughout the book. Parker has characters with diffrent personalities and that is what makes you want to keep on reading the book. This book was interesting because in the society that the book was written it was so understanding and accepting, but todays society is totally opposite to what he portrayed it to be in his novel, which made it a very interesting novel. The book overall was absolutely awesome and I would recommend it to anybody who likes to read.

    THE BEST OF THE BEST !!

    I truly do not believe that anyone can read a Spenser novel and NOT say its THE BEST !! Parker has a gift that you seldom find and he writes about a real man with real values. All of his books read as smooth as silk -- pick up one and you will not be happy until you locate and read ALL that he has written over the years -- thats a promise! IF you are a serious reader --you must read Robert Parker !!

    Spenser keeps getting better.

    The ageless Spenser keeps getting better. This was a very good story with lots of action. Hawk is the ultimate cool tough guy. Mr. Parker doesn't pull any punches with the dialogue between Spenser and Hawk and it's truly funny. A slightly anticlimatic ending but still well worth reading. Let's hope Mr. Parker never stops writing Spenser novels.

    A MEMORABLE READING BY JOE MANTEGNA

    Few voice artists can rival Joe Mantegna. He brings an unparalleled depth of understanding to the characters he represents. Perhaps this isn't surprising when one remembers that he's a Tony Award-winner for his portrayal of the memorable Richard Roma in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. His stellar Broadway credits would be impressive enough, but don't forget the big screen - he's starred in such feature films as Godfather III, Bugsy, and Searching for Bobby Fischer. Mantegna brings every ounce of this ability to his readings - close your eyes, relax, and let the story unfold as only he can tell it. And, this story is a spellbinder. Robert Parker brings back Spenser, one of America's favorite private investigators in another suspenseful tale laced with spine tingling action and crunching dialogue. When 51-year-old Nathan Smith is murdered, his young wife is immediately suspect. Few believe her innocence but she has multi millions so she retains the best to get her out of this jam. Never one to turn down a hefty fee, Spenser takes the case even though the widow's alibi wouldn't stand up in a slight breeze. Mary Smith says she was watching the tube in another room when her husband went to join the heavenly host. Furthermore, witnesses saw the couple loudly disagreeing earlier in the evening and the prosecution has a fellow eager to testify that Mary once tried to pay him to kill Nathan. Stir in another murder and you have a tempest in tea town. Good luck Spenser! As always the remarkable Mr. Parker gives readers what they want - roller coaster ride action, and cleverly conceived characters. Mr. Mantegna gives listeners what they want - a superb reading.
