4.0 out of 5 stars Not among the best but still very good., January 25, 2001
This review is from: A Catskill Eagle (Spenser, Book 12) (Mass Market Paperback)
I have read several Spenser novels chronologically starting with Mortal Stakes. This was my least favorite so far, but I still give it high grades. Parker is really stretching credibility in a story that boils down to a fight between two boys over a girl. It is a really big and complicated fight, and it involves mercenaries, gun manufacturers, CIA, FBI, so on and so on. But Parker somehow pulled it off. I can't help but enjoy the dynamic of Spenser, Hawk, Susan, et al. As with all of Parker's books, the strength lies in his characters.
Overall, it was an entertaining but not quite great book; it was just a little too farfetched to get a five star rating. But if you are a fan of Spenser, you have to read this book. It is of crucial importance if you are following the relationships and the development of the characters.

this is by far, one of the all time great spenser novels. a thrilling story plot told by the master Robert B Parker. Great fun and humor thrown into the plot. A Must for all Spenser fans. (I dont understand the other comments posted here, read it and judge yourself!)
