For Spenser, no case is ever straightforward. In this first book to feature that most unorthodox of private detectives, he gets tangled up in organized crime, dope-pushing, theft, radical politics, adultery, and murder.

Spenser earned his degree in the school of hard knocks, so he is ready when a Boston university hires him to recover a rare, stolen manuscript. He is hardly surprised that his only clue is a radical student with four bullets in his chest.

The cops are ready to throw the book at the pretty blond coed whose prints are all over the murder weapon, but Spenser knows there are no easy answers. He tackles some very heavy homework and knows that if he doesn’t finish his assignment soon, he could end up marked “D”—for dead.

    " I wanted to start at the beginning of the series. Spenser for Hire was based on this book series. I thought it was a good read, but didn't connect with the main character. "

    " That was fun. Spenser is a major wise cracker. This was Parker's first Spenser book and it was a lot closer to Humphrey Bogart in a Raymond Chandler novel than the Robert Urich TV series. I missed Hawk and Susan, but all the humor, action, and suspense were all there. As was the Boston/Cambridge area- makes me want to visit to see everywhere it took place. An added plus, was what a great job Parker did of making the times come alive. It really felt like 1973. That reminded me of the short-lived ABC show "Life on Mars" with Jason O'Mara and Harvey Keitel a year or two ago. It's a shame Parker recently passed away, good thing he wrote more than 30 Spenser books. This is the first one in the series, and only the second I've read and I am hooked! "

    " I love the Spenser series. I read this when it first came out and fell in love with him. Over the years I read them all and loved every one of them. If you have a problem Spenser's the guy that can help you. I love the way Robert Parker wrote the books. Like he talking right to you. I love Spenser's smart mouth. He always had a great come-back. I'm going to miss him a lot. "

    " the 1st Spenser novel; the series never gets old, as the hero gets a girlfriend, susan Silverman, and the ongoing relationship, right up through the rest of the series becomes seriously complex. the mysteries are always good, the evil rich guys always get their comeuppence, for detective novels these are as good as it gets, even better than the grand poobah himself, raymond chandler "
