Another winner, can't imagine not loving any of this series! The stories are great and the laughs are many.

Spenser is so smart and likeable. It was short and yet a lot happened including a lot of emotions getting sorted. He is a man you want to know but maybe not love. Good action but nothing that makes you sickish. Good problem solver.

Typical Spenser novel; under educated in the usual sense, but with a PhD in knowledge of English literature and with a vocabulary to match that sends readers to their dictionaries. The writer has a distinctive style of his own that will prove addictive to a first time reader. Old time readers of Mr. Parker don’t need a review to know the careful writing makes one search for anything the late Robert Parker wrote.

A quick, but excellent read. Lots of twist and turns. I felt as if I was shadowing Spenser on his travels and not just observing the activities unfold from a distance.
