Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Parker ( Playmates ) adds another winner to his tried-and-true series with this electrifying story told in the familiar low-voltage style of Spenser, Boston private eye. Spenser's love, psychologist Susan, acting as consultant to a TV film crew shooting locally, persuades Spenser and his loyal sidekick Hawk to guard the show's star, Jill Joyce. Although Joyce's behavior off-camera epitomizes depravity, Susan and Spenser recognize the fear behind the woman's mask. The detective investigates the threatening phone calls and letters that precede the murder of Joyce's stand-in, a tragic mistake that pushes him to the limit in his search for the killer. Success comes as the final revelation in a drama crammed with the unexpected. A nice surprise is the role played by three mongrels Spenser rescues from a pound. The dignified, impeccably mannered dogs upstage the entire cast of characters in a performance that reveals genuine star quality. Doubleday Book Club selection; Literary Guild alternate. (June)

In my humble openion this is another good book by Robert Parker. Spencer is hires to baby sit a TV star, Jill Joyce, or is her last name really Joyce? She is not a very good person. He is also to find out who has been sending her threating letters and making phone calls. With the aid of Hawk and Susan he starts his work, He has his usual one-liners that are very good. He travels to LA and gets a lot of history on Jill. Finally the person is found and you will be surprised as to who it is. If you like any of the other Spencer book you will lke this one. Wish there was more of Hawk in these books but will take what I can get.
