I told you I love Robert Parker and I finished this one last night. This is one of his Spenser stories--he's my favorite of the Parker's three protagonists: Spenser, Jesse Stone, and Sunny Randall.
This book was only moderately OK. Definitely not one of his better stories. If you love Parker you have to read it so you can say you've read them all, but if you've never read Parker, don't start with this one.
I just got three new ARC (advance reading copies) from a publisher yesterday. Hopefully I can review one of them by Monday! Happy reading this weekend.
