There have been so many good series since Parker wrote these -- maybe we have been spoiled by better plots and better writing, but I found this and the other books in this series to be a big yawn.
Maybe Parker uses her to make a point about women turning stoic men into jelly because of their sexual attraction. I don't know.
Anyway, enjoy the book and skip through the "Spenser and Susan" parts.
In reading the reviews I see all these scary comments about how the formatting's screwed up, tons of spelling errors, etc., so I'm a bit leery. But since there's no other Kindle version and I no longer read dead-tree books I figured I'd take a chance.
Well I'm 10% in...so far I've seen one hyphen that shouldn't be there and one missed period. I know it's a bit premature to give the book 5 stars but I wanted to provide a bit of a counter to these "bad format" reviews.
I don't know if those people actually got bad formats or if they're some kind of copyright-holder shills, but all I can tell you is the formatting of the copy I just bought (Dec 2012) looks perfect. I hope I can get subsequent Spenser titles from 'Rosetta Books into Film' instead of the total ripoff Random House versions I bought of the first 3 titles.
Since so much of the book is mindless conversation, you can skim through most of it. Along the way, you'll find a very contrived plot.
Maybe, he got better in his last Spencer books, but I think I'll pass on reading them
