Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate | 1/26/2014

    " April Kyle is back again as the least compelling prostitute ever. Slow moving and no where near as much fun as the majority of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 1/15/2014

    " Pretty good. I enjoy the Spenser books when I read them but I seldom feel compelled to pick up another right away. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebekkila | 1/13/2014

    " A pretty decent Parker novel. Not one of the more memorable of the series though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wes Metz | 1/10/2014

    " Spenser rescues a hooker - for the third time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia Owl | 12/23/2013

    " Spenser #13, he goes to NYC "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daelith | 12/7/2013

    " 2.5 stars. Not one of my favorites of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 12/7/2013

    " The best Spenser novel I've read so far! This series has wonderful characters, wit, action, and remarkable compassion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 12/1/2013

    " Just good ole Spenser.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne | 11/16/2013

    " I thought this book was trite and stereotyped. I don't recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 8/6/2013

    " the thing I enjoy about Spenser novels is Robert B Parker comes back to past characters, which is the case in this novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis Minsel | 8/2/2013

    " An entertaining Spenser read ..... not as engrossing as some other Spenser stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Beaver | 11/13/2012

    " Godd, straightforward story. No plots twists, little mystery... but even simply walking in Spenser's shoes for a while is fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron Wallace | 8/29/2012

    " Can't get enough of Spenser and Hawk, the characters are full of wit, intellect, and strength. Parker's dialogue may be the best written in any genre, just the back and forth verbage between the two central figures alone is worth the reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 8/5/2012

    " My first Spenser book and then I was hooked! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 4/30/2012

    " This is a Spenser book. I didn't really care for it like I usually like the Spenser books. Although Hawk did make an appearance so that was nice. They work so well together and do have great conversations! "

    " Good Spenser outing. Parker seemed to have a thing re prostitution, as it seems to come up frequently in his books. This time, the storyline is limited, which suits Spenser books much better than the large scope Spensers. Hawk's always a hoot. Very solid ending. "
