The Bottom Line or Tweet
Welcome to Boston's finest
.
Plot or Premise
Spenser is hired to find a rare book stolen from a university and the first witness he talks to ends up standing over a dead body within a day, but claims she didn't do it
.
What I Liked
This is the first book in the long-running Spenser series, and it is one of my favorite series of all time. Quirk and Belson are introduced, as well as some general hoodlums, and it is classic Spenser. Keep plugging along, doing what he wants to do or thinks is right, even after the book-napping is resolved.
.
What I Didn't Like
Without Silverman or Hawk, it almost feels like Spenser's on vacation on his own, not quite a full Spenser story. As such, it runs a bit more linearly than some of his other books.

Disclosure

I love Spenser's snarkiness. This is a good mystery dealing with a missing manuscript, a couple of murders, and an underground student organization. ( )

I've read a few newer Spenser novels and really liked them. The humor is fantastic, and the crimes have enough suspense. This being #1 in the long long series shows a few weaknesses that don't appear in the later ones. It's a little too straight-forward, and it's sometimes too blunt about things. ( )

First of the Spenser ("It's with an s... Like the English poet.”) novels. Basically, a noir detective mystery, updated to the early 70s. I definitely understand why the Chandler estate came to Parker, to complete the final Philip Marlowe novel.

Parker clearly likes his Spenser character. And what's not to like? He's a really tough guy, who is friendly and likes bad jokes; he's attractive, but not a model; the ladies like him, the men respect him. Golly, but he's one fine and wonderful guy. However, I agree with one character's assessment: "You're nowhere near as funny as you think you are, Mr. Spenser".

Spenser is hired by a Boston University to track down a stolen manuscript. Along the way he beats on thugs and is beaten, shoots and is shot, has sex and... has some more sex, and generally smarms his way through Boston's upper, lower, and criminal classes. Oh, he also rescues a damsel, along the way. Twice. He's that kind of guy.

My two main complaints are that Spenser seemed so far ahead of the plot that the ending seemed almost anti-climactic and that I didn't really get any kind of feel for Boston. It just seemed to stand in as a vaguely college town, but only a college town because there's a university, not because I got any real feel from the setting.

I've read that the series gets better, starting with the second volume. Maybe. It would make sense for subsequent books to be better. I haven't decided if I'm going to find out. ( )
