Not my favorite Spenser to be honest. Felt Parker was reaching with the first person narration from the victim's perspective. No doubt after 22 books he was getting a bit bored, but this bit of experimentation didn't work as well. Plus, the depiction of the inner city doesn't hold up well. Anyway, still enjoyable, but far from his best.

I will be so happy to return this book to the library because it is not in pristine condition, and by that I mean that it is in slightly disgusting condition, but I read it anyway. Those of you who have followed my thread for years will remember Roberta, Donna and I reading twelve of these books together several years ago, and it led to some delightful ranting. I have a love/hate relationship with Spenser - mostly, I love to hate him. Heh. And Susan really gets on my nerves. But I love Hawk, and I think Pearl is charming, and I adore the conversation that reading these books provides, so when Roberta asked me if I would like to read four with her this year - one per quarter, I eagerly said yes.

This is entry number 22, and here Spenser is asked to find Detective Frank Belson's missing wife. I love Belson, and I wish we got to see more of him here, but, alas, it was not to be. We, the readers, know that Belson's wife has been kidnapped, but Spenser and Belson do not know this - another possibility is that she has simply run off. I though this one was kind of lame - the villain is really built up as this crazy tough guy, but he does not fully deliver. Also I though the brief glimpses into what was happening to our victim were pointless - for me, these detracted from the story, and I think the book would have been more suspenseful if we were kept in the dark like Spenser until the end. I think Parker was attempting to add drama, but it was a complete fail for me.

Spenser's side-kick in this one is Chollo, who is good enough, but I would have preferred Hawk, who is always fabulous. Too bad he was in Burma. And we had to drag through more Spenser and Susan scenes, although, it was not as painful in this book than it has been in previous books. And to think that I really loved Susan back at the very beginning. *shakes head sadly* Again she nibbles and she sips, but we are also treated to her actually eating a full meal AND drinking her margarita with salt. So that was worth waiting for, right?!

The ending was a bit too pat for me, but it will do in a pinch. Typical Spenser, IMO.

*I forgot to add that Parker only used the word machismo twice here, which I really appreciated, and he waited until page 71 to introduce it. Bonus points for that. ( )

Found this book at the little free library. I enjoyed it, but kept worrying about whether I should let anyone see that I was reading this kind of a book. This particular Spenser novel had a lot more than the usual amount of the f-word, although the people who used it probably realistically would use it. One guy seemed to say it instead of ah, um.
The character development was great. And I just pretended to myself that he and Susan were actually married. They were monogamous, after all.

(Date finished is a rough estimate - it could be a week off either direction.) ( )

Yet another excellent Spenser, this time saving the second wife of Belson from an abductor. The stories told in side by side was similiar to Crimson Joy but seemed more effective here, as the two stories merged very well. It was good to learn more about Belson as well. I wonder how I will cope when I'm done reading Spensers?
