2.0 out of 5 stars I guess he is just getting bored, October 14, 2009
This review is from: The Professional (Hardcover)
I have read all of the Spencer books, and most of Parker's other series. I got the sense while reading "The Profesional" that Parker is just bored with the entire series. The main plot characters are all very shallow, and quite unbelievable. Spenser seems too dull and uninteresting, except when entertaining or making love to his Susan. Hawk is almost non-existent as are Quirk and Belsen. Boo and Zel belong in a third rate black and white gangster film. Tony, Ty-Bop and Junior belong in a third rate black gangster movie. Do I really care about a side trip to NYC?

Did I enjoy reading the book? Yes, it was a pleasant afternoon diversion. Did I enjoy it as much as most of the other Spenser books? No. Will I buy and read the next Spenser book? Yes. The one after that? It had better be better.
