Every once in a while I like to read a Spenser book, just because he's such a great character and such fun to read (especially if you love hard-boiled detectives, as I do). This one does not disappoint, although knowing that it's the last one is a bit bittersweet. Definitely recommended if you enjoy this genre. ( )

I registered a book at BookCrossing.com!

It's a good book for listening on a trip. Which is what I got it for.

Spenser is hired to protect an art scholar who is directed by a museum to pay a ransom for a stolen painting. Unfortunately, the scholar loses his life. Spenser has his pride. He can't let it go.

In his investigation, Spenser finds that it is not a simple matter of stolen art. It is a complex scheme. Is he up to it? Or will this spell the end of his career? Well, what do you think??

I find Parker's use of "said" for every conversation to be funny:

"I'm going home," Spenser said.

"I'll go with you," the other man said.

"Who invited you?" Spenser said.

etc. I think it's easier to slide over them when you read the novel yourself; less so when listening. It becomes a drumbeat of said said said.

Parker's detective, Spenser, is hard-boiled, macho. But with a side of intelligence, or maybe I should say literary knowledge. Always ready with a quotation. I wonder if a person with Spenser's apparent knowledge would speak the way he does. I suppose it's possible. ( )

One of the last Spenser novels written by Parker, and a good one! ( )

It pains me to do this but this was my least favorite Spenser book ever. I finished it but I was not happy with it. ( )

A quick, enjoyable read. It's mostly light banter vs. description or narrative, which is both good and bad. Interesting characters, revealed primarily through what they say.

This is the first Robert B. Parker book I've read; I started with the last in a series instead of at the beginning, which may affect my viewpoint.

P.S. If you're interested in art (this involves a stolen painting), don't expect much art-related and you won't be disappointed.
