    " Am positive I had read this Spenser story before, but it wasn't listed in MY BOOKS, so will add it now. Another clever story. I may just have to go back and read them all again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy Fogleman | 2/8/2014

    " This was a good book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dina | 2/3/2014

    " Loved the ending, but it took forever to get there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cm Perkins | 1/13/2014

    " I am reading everything Robert B. Parker wrote and down to my last few books. Just finished this one today and when I first started it I thought "OH NO - a dull book". But once I got past the set-up it once again was such a fun ride with Spencer-Hawk-Susan interaction, and throw in Vinnie for more laughs. Did not figure things out until close to the end - really good twists and turns. Once again - I highly recommend all his books!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lewis Weinstein | 1/9/2014

    " Fast read; good while reading; not particularly memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/3/2014

    " Spenser...what can you say? I love his dry humor. Good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 July Wolfe | 10/28/2013

    " Having read a few of the later books, it's nice to go back now and read as each character is introduced, as each favor is won. I love the way Parker writes and I'm glad to know there's another series (The Jesse Stone Series) when I finish this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walker | 10/19/2013

    " My brother Carl enjoys mysteries and brought over this book. It is the series that spun of the "Spencer for Hire" TV series. It is humorous in a dark way. Good beach reading...if I could get to a beach! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 8/22/2013

    " Spenser and Hawk together again. Just like his other stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 3/28/2013

    " A pleasant read in the style of James Patterson. Very short chapters and interesting characters make this an easy read when you can only afford short periods of reading times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 12/20/2012

    " I didn't want to put every Robert B. Parker mystery I've read. I started with this one and jumped around a lot over the past 15 years. The Spencer series is still a prime example of excellent characters and dialogue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 8/16/2012

    " Nancy 4 stars; Ron 4 stars "

    " Another great novel in the Spencer series. I'm trying to spread these out and make them last. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clifford | 2/1/2012

    " People actually read this stuff? Why bother? It's formula and cliche from start to finish. It's bad writing and bad characterization. Shadow puppets would have more depth. My first and last Robert B. Parker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Beck | 1/27/2012

    " Another excellent Spenser adventure. "

    " This book involved small town repertory theater and Chinese criminal (mob) activities, neither of any interest to me. Therefore, it didn't
    rate as high as most Parker books. "
