really liked it
Read in February, 2009

Reading a Parker book was a good way to spend
the weekend. Although, since I'm on a Parker
marathon, it's a good way to spend any time.
This was the oldest book I'd read of the Spenser
mysteries, so it had lots of background on Susan
and Spenser.
The jacket makes a great summary: "Parker has a
recorder's ear for dialogue, an agile wit, a remorseless
put-down of the second-rate in people and in things, and
strangely enough, a soupcon of compassion hidden under
that sardonic, flip exterior."
A favorite line was when someone referred to government
intelligence, and he said, "Isn't that an oxymoron?"
