Fun story, uneven narration - Joe Mantegna, who played Spencer in the recent A&E movies, does a passable job in narrating this tale. His Spencer is erudite and dry, really done quite well.
He does less well, though, with the other roles. Hawk's accept is different every time he speaks. Susan and the other women sound -- well, anything but sexy. And I'm sure that, even with the "unabridged" label, there would have been some way to elide out the over-repetitive "he said"/"I said" bits of dialog

I didn't read this specific Spenser novel but I read about 20 of them over the 70s and 80s and 90s or thereabouts.... Great character and of course I loved his side kick who was so brilliantly portrayed. I even enjoyed the 'Spenser for Hire' TV series. They did a pretty good job of it... The books were always a good read, quick, catchy, smart and well-written..... I recommend them to anyone who loves a good p.i. yarn with well-developed characters and a lively pace.

Good book, great series, loved the way Robert Parker told his stories and loved the Spenser character along with all his exploits.
