4.0 étoiles sur 5 Spenser 4 Hire 15 août 2000
Par Mark S. Winger - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the first Spenser novel I have read, and I think I am off to a good start. I never really watched the tv show and I don't know if it was indicative of the books. I am a big fan of both Harlan Coben and Robert Crais and I feel that their characters and sidekicks are very similar to Spenser and Hawk. Obviously Parker's novels precede those two authors, so I have to say he originated a good trend of the witty private detective and his cool but dangerous partner. I am also a big sports fan, so this book was all the more appealing. It's a quick read, so pick it up.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A better title: Dwayne Should Have Gone to Jail 28 mai 2000
Par Christopher Fama - Publié sur Amazon.com
In Playmates, Spenser investigates a point shaving scheme involving Taft University basketball players. Spenser quickly deduces that Taft star player Dwayne Woodcock is involved, and sets out to undo the illiterate young man's predicament, primarily out of respect for Dwayne's girlfriend Chantel.
Much like Parker's Double Deuce, Playmates delves into African American issues of self esteem and poverty. And much like Double Deuce, Parker stumbles by relying too much on trite popular press rationales for criminal conduct - all in defense of his own unsympathetic hoods. Spenser's affection for Chantel is intended to resolve this dilemma, but her character is so underdeveloped that there's no compelling motivation for Spenser's heroics.
But it's easy to overlook a thin plot, because the joy of a Parker novel is really Spenser's sassy wit and his violent outings with the devastating and equally humorous Hawk. Particularly enjoyable is a scene in which Hawk chides Spenser about the low street value currently offered to have him "aced." One wonders how Parker can write Hawk so unapologetically while offering up sociologic platitudes for any other African American character involved in questionable circumstances.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Spenser demonstrates again that he is a thug with a moral compass 16 février 2008
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
The setting for this Spenser novel is the Taft college basketball team that is challenging for the NCAA title. A story has been published in the campus paper alleging that some of the players are engaged in point shaving. Dwayne Woodcock is on the team and the best college basketball player in the country. He is a tough, underprivileged man from Brooklyn and a man of street principles. Spenser is asked to investigate and while it takes a bit of time, after studying game tapes and looking over the records of the games, he concludes that Dwayne is shaving points.
Being Spenser, he encounters the gambler behind the plot and the gambler hires people to kill Spenser, which of course fails miserably. As he continues his investigation, Spenser learns that Dwayne does not know how to read and there has been a go-along plot among the faculty at Taft to keep Dwayne eligible. Nobody specifically changed grades, just gave Dwayne extra opportunities to succeed where reading was not required. After working the problem for some time, Spenser manages to find a solution where no one learns of the point shaving or the complicity of others in the scam.
My favorite character in the book is the Taft basketball coach, Dixie Dunham. A fiery guy who demands a lot from his players, he makes the mistake of fighting with Spenser. However, after he gets beat up, he agrees to cooperate with Spenser and even benches Dwayne during the NCAA tournament when he will not give the name of the gambler. Despite all of his bluster and obnoxiousness, Dunham proves to be an honest man who does the right thing, even if it will cost him the national title.
This is a good book with Spenser once again proving to be a thug with a moral compass and an overgrown sense of decency. As an academic, I could also relate to the attitude of the faculty and staff at Taft. While there is no overt bending of the rules for an athlete, s/he is quietly helped along a path that avoids their weaknesses.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A welcome breather after CRIMSON JOY 30 janvier 2003
Par Neal Reynolds - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a bit of a relief after the very intense predecesser. Here, you're dealing primarily with point shaving in college basketball, not with serial murderers.
However, as usual in a Spenser novel, there's more here than just the primary plot. There's insight into racial relations, a theme that Parker explores deeper in the later PASTIME. There's also the very human theme concerning dealing with a person who's abilities you admire, but who is an insufferable so-and-so.
It's a typical fast read and yet leaves you with a feeling that you've picked up something of value from the reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Basketball, Bookies and Mobsters 10 octobre 2001
Par Paul Skinner - Publié sur Amazon.com
This was my first Spenser book. It was much better than the TV series. I loved the no nonsense character of both Spenser and Hawk. The vulgarity was strong, but believable. Spenser drifts through most of the story wondering what he's supposed to do, since his moral compass is nagging him to correct the wrongs of the world, even if they aren't in alignment with his customer. Will Spenser live to see another day? Given the large number of Robert B. Parker novels, you can bet on it.
