In the detective business, Spenser sometimes has to bend the law—other times, break it. But he lives by his own inviolate rules. And he loves just one woman … even though she is the one woman he’s just lost.

So when Susan’s desperate letter arrives, Spenser doesn’t think twice. His best friend, Hawk, faces a life sentence, and Susan has gotten herself into even bigger trouble. Now Spenser has to free them both—even if it means getting caught up in the world of the CIA, guns, and murder.

    " Spencer wins await the movie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 1/31/2014

    " Weak ending but some of the best Spenser and Hawk interactions in any of the Spenser books and it is nice to have all that Spenser Susan drama out of the way. This is a real turning point in the series. After A Catskill Eagle Spenser's private life is far more stable for the remainder of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 1/19/2014

    " Susan and Hawk in trouble in California. Spenser to the rescue. Violent end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Ward | 1/17/2014

    " A Catskill Eagle (Spenser #12) by Robert B. Parker (Dell 1985)(Fiction - Mystery) finds Spenser alone at home in Boston. Susan has left him and is with another man out west. Spenser receives a terse note from Susan that she is in trouble and Hawk, who dropped everything to go rescue her, is in jail for attempted murder. This is a true cross-country adventure for the boys from Boston. 6/10, finished 9/2/11. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenny | 1/15/2014

    " A stand-out Spenser novel. He pairs up with Hawk for this novel and becomes a killer to save Susan. Lots of action and suspense and plot twists. His relationship with Susan develops. Highly recommended for the general reader; a must-read for Spenser fans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martin Streetman | 7/21/2013

    " Not my favorite Spencer book, I think this is his longest one that I have read so far and it might not be a bad idea for him to stick to the shorter ones. I lost interest towards the end and read a few other books before I could take my medicine and finish it. I'm just glad it's done. "
