    " This was a reread for me to fit into a reading challenge but of course I loved it as much the third time as the two previous times ! ! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda Marshall | 1/16/2014

    " I would recommend this book to anyone that finds themselves say... stuck at the airport... with no money for magazines... and you've circled the gift shops... twice. Basically, on a scale of Blah-WOW, I give this book a 'meh.' "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/16/2014

    " Good stuff in the series. Back when Parker wasn't phoning them in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maeve | 1/6/2014

    " This one broke form and had vignettes from the perspective of the missing person for which he was looking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 bookczuk | 1/4/2014

    " Once again it's Spenser to the rescue. this time he is helping Frank the cop find his missing wife. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Yoak | 1/3/2014

    " This was an enjoyable Spenser. We find out in the opening pages that Frank's wife has disappeared into "thin air" and in fact has been snatched. This provides a more personal challenge for Spenser than those in most of the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacy | 12/26/2013

    " Not one of the best, but pretty good considering Hawk isn't in this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 10/23/2013

    " One aspect of this novel is how deeply Parker gets into the head of the victim -- the kidnapped wife of a police officer. This is a great novel of suspense and insight, and is a worthy addition to the Spenser saga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelleyrae at Book'd Out | 1/22/2013

    " I'm a huge fan of the dry wit and repartee so I enjoyed this as much as the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mischelle | 12/13/2012

    " A Cool cool book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martin Maenza | 10/23/2012

    " My review can be found on my blog: Martin's View: Thin Air. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Meuser | 7/18/2012

    " It was a good read. I never read one by him I didn't like. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 2/16/2012

    " I read anything and everything my grampa gives me, including Robert Parker mystery novels. This one was pretty good. I mostly just like reading his books on the subway because of the back cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 12/29/2011

    " pretty good, kept my interest "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RunRachelRun | 10/6/2011

    " Not as great as the others, but read it in one evening, so you know I did enjoy the story nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 9/6/2011

    " Tension. More tension. I couldn't read it in the evening before bed. Parker had some good passages which contemplated what happens to people with disastrous childhoods. I think that Parker was a good man. I often mourn his passing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 9/2/2011

    " 3.5 gr8 read, interesting characters n story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 7/15/2011

    " Vacation read. I read it right after an Elmore Leonard and it pales in comparison. Where Leonard's guys seem quirky and real, Parker's seem to go just a little too far and close to comic book. Not bad, though, if you need a 2 day read on the beach for giggles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Voula | 6/14/2011

    " Another wonderful Spenser book! "

    " Satisfying Spenser with a spacey villian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 4/13/2011

    " Parker's Spenser novels are always a great read in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 2/18/2011

    " This one was quite quirky and I liked the way it twisted around. Parker is starting to really understand Spenser better I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekkila | 12/22/2010

    " Started today.
    I really love the Spenser books, such wit and a total bad-ass to boot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/19/2010

    " This is my first Spenser book. He's no Nero Wolfe, but he's got a dry sense of humor I can relate to. Plus he's a badass. Another bonus: there are approximately 100,000 Spenser novels, so this series should keep me busy for quite some time. "

    " This was a fast easy reading suspence, thriller. I know I enjoyed Spenser some years ago but I now like reading something with a little substance. "
