    one of the better ones

    -This is one of the better Spencer novels. The plot is more gritty and less polished; it has that true Spencer PI feel to it, as apposed to the later books which, depressingly, sound more like a love story between Spencer and Suzan.

    I Also Recommend:

    A book sure to spark conversation

    I have just completed another Robert B. Parker book: "Ceremony." While I enjoy Mr. Parker's storytelling, the ending, which I do not wish to give away, disturbed me.

    Despite my opinion on the ending, I still give it 4 stars. Mr. Parker, as the author, is an excellent storyteller, and the one who creates the ending for his book: here, Spenser must come up with a quick solution to save a young girl from the jaws of a low-line prostitution ring - a girl who does not want to go back to the safety of her childhood home. I have thought about Spenser's solution in this story for some time now, and I honestly cannot say that I have an alternative, based on the character Mr. Parker created.

    I would recommend this book, but I am not sure everyone would agree with the ending. If you are looking for an ending which may spark conversation, this book has done so for me.

    All kits will get Mentors. Shadekit's will be Junipermeds. Bluekit's will be Sandwave. Crowkit's will be Blueswift. Amberkit's will be Badgerfang. And Ashkit's will be Stargazer.

    Ceremony

    Let all cats old enough to hunt their own prey gather beneath the Highrock for a Clan meeting! Milkkit and Graykit, step forward. Milkkit, from this moment until you recieve your warrior name, you will be called Milkpaw. Willowfall, pass down your knowledge and skills to this apprentice. Graykit, from this moment until you recieve your warrior name, you will be called Graypaw. Stormy, pass down your knowledge and skills to this apprentice. "Milkpaw! Graypaw! Milkpaw! Graypaw!" *jumps down from the Highrock*

    Genuine Story regarding Runaways

    Recommended. Mr. Parker keeps you guessing and entertains.

    Fastest read

    When Spenser and Hawk get together, the reader is in for a treat. Parker's style is quick, easy, and humorous.
