Présentation de l'éditeur

Spenser's never had a client like Jill Joyce, the star of TV's Fifty Minutes. She's beautiful, bitchy, sexy--and someone is stalking her. Spenser can hardly blame the would-be assassin...until he means the true meaning of "stage fright."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ... 30 janvier 2003
Par Neal Reynolds - Publié sur Amazon.com

... I thought this was one of the best Spenser novels at the time of its publication, but I do recommend reading it in sequence. Especially, read "A Savage Place" first, because the two books have a certain relation to each other.
This is a bit more of a mystery than others in the series in that you don't discover the murderer's identity until the end, and this is good in adding a bit more suspense than usual.
Spenser's hired to protect a very obnoxius TV star, who's addicted to drugs, alcoholic, arrogant...listed alphabetically, I'd be naming several other character defects before we get to nympho, and that's just past the middle of the alphabet!!! On top of all this, she might be making up all these threats she's supposedly receiving. However, when her double is murdered, Spenser has to take the task of protecting her more seriously. He has a hang-up about protecting women since an unpleasant happening earlier in the series.
I had a suspicion around half way through as to who the murderer was...I won't tell you whether I was right or wrong. However, I believe the suspicion was deliberately & subtly planted by Parker, and if so, I admire him for the way he did it. Like I say, I'll let you find out whether this was deliberate foreshadowing for dramatic effect, or a red herring to distract you.
I do recommend this highly, but if you're not already a Spenser fan, read several earlier books including "The Savage Place" first in order to better appreciate this.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Spenser Mixes It With The TV Crowd 16 décembre 2001
Par Untouchable - Publié sur Amazon.com

Once again it's Spenser to the rescue. This time he's called onto the set of a television show to act as bodyguard to the star, and America's sweetheart, Jill Joyce. Unfortunately, she's also a drunk, incredibly difficult to work with, and determined to bed every man within a 5-mile radius.
But when Spenser's on the job it's professionalism all the way which makes for a very fiery employer / employee relationship. It also makes for some most amusing situations and gives ample opportunity for Spenser to display his flair for detective work. The relationship between Spenser and Susan is comfortable, as ever, and between Spenser and Hawk as solid as a rock.
The sanctuary of a Spenser book is always a welcome haven for weary readers with the pace of the book high and the pages turning quickly. Light entertainment at it's best; if you're after mystery with a liberal dash of humour then you're in for a real treat here.

I think this is Parker's take on the tv series Spenser For Hire. He doesn't seem to have a high opinion of Hollywood actors/actresses. The other book in this series that this one is most like is : Looking For Rachel Wallace.

While I am a huge Spenser fan I wouldn't say this novel is a must-have. It is more for those who are die-hard Spenser/Parker fans. It is still a good read, but many other novels in this series is better than this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ANOTHER GOOD ONE BY PARKER!!! 23 février 2001
Par Mac Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Parker has written another good book. Spencer is hired to baby sit a TV star. He is to protect her and also find out who is trying to kill her. He is his usual witty self, he is helped by Hawk and Susan as always. The TV star, Jill Joyce, is not a good person, a nice way to say it. Spencer keeps digging and finally comes up with the person who has been making the threats. You will be surprised who it is. A good read, if you have liked other Spencer books you will like this one. I always enjoy Hawk, wish he had a larger role the books.

Par Collin D. Freeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This Spenser novel is for me one of the hardest to decide in terms of how I felt about it once I had finished it. I have read all of the earlier Spenser novels, up to about 1999 or so, and when it came to this one, I could definitely see a turning point. Other reviewers here have talked briefly about the plot involving a spoiled, drink-happy TV star with attitude, but I am going to add more opinion to how the reader might or might not like this book once he/she has finished it. Robert B. Parker has stated that in his earlier writing days, he used to craft out a story from beginning to end before writing it, and then years later he began to just sort of take a brief idea and begin writing, not knowing where the story was going to lead until he got to writing it. I could clearly see with this book that perhaps beginning with Stardust, he began using the latter methodology. It shows to me how using this strategy can sometimes lead to a great read (Crimson Joy), or it can lead to a convoluted mess that somehow has to be tied up at the end.
Stardust starts out very tight and fun. Witness Spenser's comments about television, something I am sure were comments the author had regarding TV while the Spenser:for Hire series was airing. There are some fantastic scenes in this book, as well. For example, Spenser's handling of a showing-up a martial artist's (Randall)display of his abilities, or what I consider to be Hawk's best line to Jill Joyce after she drunkenly lets him know she is looking for something in particular.

-- BIG SPOILER --

But, after all of that, the reader is left with an ending that requires one to believe that a poor white-trash person, managing to be able to go out of their way to travel a great distance, and afford to do it, is the killer we've been looking for. It just did not make sense to me. There are other candidates thrown at the reader along the way as possibilies, and clearly Parker had not decided who the killer was going to be until he got to the end. He could have chosen better, in my opinion.
It is for these reasons I give the book 3 stars. Great read up until about the last fourth of the novel, where it seems to try to reach for a ending it did not really have to.
