Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times bestselling author of the Spenser series of crime thrillers - Book 2 in the series -

Appie Knoll is the kind of suburb where kids grow up right. But something is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Kevin Bartlett disappears. Everyone thinks he's run away -- until the comic strip ransom note arrives.  It doesn't take Spenser long to get the picture -- an affluent family seething with rage, a desperate boy making strange friends...friends like Vic Harroway, body builder. Mr. Muscle is Spenser's only lead and he isn't talking...except with his fists. But when push comes to shove, when a boy's life is on the line, Spenser can speak that language too.

"A brillant, and cynical, comic tragedy or tragic comedy of manners. Long may Parker wave." -- Los Angeles Times

Book Description

Appie Knoll is the kind of suburb where kids grow up right. But something is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Kevin Bartlett disappears. Everyone thinks he's run away -- until the comic strip ransom note arrives.

It doesn't take Spenser long to get the picture -- an affluent family seething with rage, a desperate boy making strange friends...friends like Vic Harroway, body builder. Mr. Muscle is Spenser's only lead and he isn't talking...except with his fists. But when push comes to shove, when a boy's life is on the line, Spenser can speak that language too.

"Spenser is everyman's fantasy: social critic, gourmet cook, physically fit, sculptor, and of course, unabashed participant in a non-destructive sexual relationship. Parker has taken his place beside Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Ross MacDonald." (The Boston Globe)

Humour, philosophie, psychologie et intrigue font partie intégrante de la recette de Robert PARKER pour proposer de bons moments de détente. Surtout vrai à ses débuts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 PICK-UP !! 18 juin 2015
Par Reece - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the original "Parker Spenser" (i.e. no co-writers or "ghost" writers) until I had stayed away for a while. When I came back recently I began early in the series (# 2) with " God Save the Child" . It was all there, even early---incomparable description, superb character development and fascinating story line. Spenser was already a smart aleck, even !!! If you have trouble figuring out "whodunit" take heart in the knowledge that you are not alone. Interestingly, I found the 70's prices and other references to the time charming. I could relate to them very well. For anyone who has read "Spenser late" and thinks it not worthwhile to go back in time to earlier in his writing career I would discourage that thinking. There is no sequence with Spenser per se. You can pick up where you want to, but by all means PICK UP !! . And stay "picked up" if you enjoy fun fast-paced thrillers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 When Spenser met Susan 14 octobre 2015
Par BostonReader - Publié sur Amazon.com

Meet the Bartletts. Their son has just runaway from their home in Smithsfield and Spenser is on the case. But this case is more than just a rebellious child running away from home. Home was far from perfect with an "eccentric" mother and a workaholic father, poor Kevin Bartlett might have found himself a friend in the form criminal. And when Spenser digs deeper into the town of Smithsfield, he discovers that everyone is not who they seem.

This is a well written and neatly plotted novel by the one and only Robert B. Parker. Spenser is at his finest from dealing with the likes of the Bartletts and their friends to tailing possible criminals. For me, the ending was probably the greatest highlight and one of the best endings I've come across in the genre. The characters are drawn perfectly with their mighty egos or lack there of and to be introduced to the character of Susan Silverman, the love of Spenser's life, adds charm to the book which is about dreadful a subject as pedophilia, prostitution and drugs. As far as mystery/crime novels go, I strongly recommend this one to anyone whose a fan of Raymond Chandler, Dennis Lehane or even Michael Connelly. I like how confident Spenser is or at least tries to be and I like his wits and his wisecracks. Habitual Spenser fans can expect nothing but classic Spense from this one.

Spenser returns in his second novel as he is hired to find Kevin Barrett, a 15 year old runaway from a home where parents fought often and his mom has a history with a lot of men in town, a fact Kevin finds hard to accept. When a ransom note turns up for $50,000 a bunch of red flags go up that this may really not be the kidnapping someone wants the parents to now believe. Follow that with the parent's attorneys murder in their living room and the puzzle challenges Spenser ever further. Hard book to put down. Great.

After hearing everyone rave about Robert Parker, I read his first two books and so far I'm not impressed. Maybe I didn't like them because of how out of date the stories are, and I prefer more current fiction. RBP seems to spend more time on describing what people are wearing than on an actual storyline, his characters are too cartoonish for one to even care about including the main character Spenser. And the supposed case he is working on never shows him to be very bright but just lucky he solves them; and the cases are so mundane and uninteresting that I yawn through them.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 17 avril 2015

As I have stated in another review, I first started reading the Spenser series a few books in,apparently after Mr. Parker had reached his stride. I then decided I'd like to read the series from the beginning. I have to say that this book as well as the first in the series was somewhat disappointing. It was not the Parker I was used to reading. As in the first novel, there was what I believe to be an excess of narrative description, especially about what the characters were wearing. I wasn't interested in reading about a fashion show.

This book, I found to be a bit depressing about a dysfunctional family whose son, they thought, had been kidnapped. Turned out it wasn't so. He wasn't kidnapped at all. I don't know if I will continue reading the series from the beginning or not. I prefer his later style of limited narrative and short clipped dialogue.
