Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

When a client who suspects his wife is cheating on him is murdered in Parker's 35th snappy Spenser adventure (after Hundred-Dollar Baby), the Boston PI takes it personally, not only because the case resonates with Spenser's past history with love interest Susan, but also because, like Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade, Spenser feels he can't let a client get murdered without doing something about it. The repartee is up to Parker's high standards, and the detection is hands on and straightforward, with Spenser carrying the load. Since Spenser's aides, including the stalwart Hawke, outclass the heavies, Spenser has time to deal with the mysterious other man, Perry Alderson, whose academic background appears as suspect as his dealings with various subversive groups. This briskly paced cat-and-mouse game offers Spenser fans exactly what they've come to expect from the reliable Parker—no-nonsense action and plenty of romantic give-and-take between Susan and Spenser, who even find the subject of marriage intruding once more.

*Starred Review* In his Spenser novels, when he's writing at the top of his game (which he is here), Parker is like a brilliant musician. From the opening chords—which, in just about every Spenser novel, comprise the staging of the first meeting between private-eye Spenser and a troubled client—you know you're listening to someone who has absolute command of his work. And it just gets better, as Parker builds his theme, with variations both comic and thrilling. This time out, in the thirty-fifth addition to the series, the troubled client is a husband who feels his wife has been behaving bizarrely. Spenser thinks she's probably having an affair, and through the magic of a planted listening device, he presents the worried husband with the damning evidence. The device has also picked up that the wife's lover is involved in a group called Last Hope, which turns out to be a kind of brokerage outlet for terrorists looking for equipment and other terrorists. The case has moved from the kind of private-eye work that Spenser finds sleazy to one with horrific ramifications. The story itself makes compelling reading on its own, but Parker, as usual, spikes it with caustic wit and the interplay between Spenser and his longtime love, Susan. And here he ups the ante by calling on Spenser to use all his brain and brawn to protect Susan. Terrific. Fletcher, Connie

Par A photographer - Publié sur

I have a friend who no longer likes to read Spenser novels because he says they dwell too much on Spenser's relationship with Susan. Up until now, I've disagreed with him. I've pointed out that the relationship has been a sidebar to the main storyline in all the novels. Unfortunately, I'm coming around to his point of view after reading this most recent Spenser book.

Parker has created an icon of modern detective fiction with the Spenser character and it would be extremely sad if this series declined into a psychobabble quagmire of interpersonal relationship. Previous books have dealt with Spenser and Susan within the structure of the story. In this book, the self-analysis is intrusive and drags down an already significantly lightweight plot.

And the plot is indeed light. The terrorist organization portrayed is made up of mindless android-like followers of a 1960s-style pseudo-charismatic anti-government radical. This portrayal is so convoluted the reader can't distinguish whether the bad guys are right-wing or left-wing. This is evocative of a politically correct screenplay of a made-for-TV movie that doesn't want to offend any group so it creates a stereotypical villian that is 40 years out-of-date. It's as if Parker wrote the story as filler for the Spenser/Susan sidebar.

And what is really disappointing about this book is that Parker is capable of better. The reader deserves better.

The Spenser books have always relied on formula: the "witty" dialogue, the tough-as-nails protagonist, the quirky sidekicks (Hawk, Vinnie, Chollo), and the always-unpleasant Susan. It's a formula that works; why else would people be reading the 35th Spenser novel?
Now and Then may not be as dramatic and colorful as some of the earlier Spensers, but it holds its own. Yes, some of the formulaic elements are getting old, but there's enough action to keep us interested anyway.

In this one, along with his usual tenacious pursuit of the bad guy, Spenser discusses the possibility of marriage with Susan. Who cares? Nobody. The woman is little more than an arm ornament, and a disagreeable one at that.

The important thing is, Spenser does the requisite antagonist butt kicking, which is why we keep reading.

The Spenser Series is an easy read..I started with #1 and just finished with the last book in the series. Love all of the characters that continue throughout the series. Spenser is such a great character with a semi sarcastic personality who has a hard time of taking serious people seriously. His girlfriend, who is a psychiatrist, helps him work things out mentally during cases he is handling and Hawk and various other strong male characters, help him with other cases. You will never be bored reading the Spenser Series.

Robert Parker needs no praise from me. He is another author I found by accident and couldn't put the book down. With the exception of a western novel he wrote, I am a big fan. There is only one thing wrong with a Parker novel. I have to read it in on day. His Spencer novels and his Jesse Stone novels feel, to me, as though a friend is relating his experience(s) to me. I know he has passed on and I feel as though I've lost a good friend.

Love Spenser, want to have Hawk's child, but... I hate it when Parker got lazy. Entire chapters of double-, sometimes triple-spaced dialogue comprising maybe a couple hundred words. Often the same dialogue between Spencer and Susan or Spencer and Hawk or Epstein or Belson. Susan being luminous or a similar adjective. This would would have been a more interesting story if Spencer had not let Susan off the hook, again, and had really opened up about the Costigan affair. And so the dance continues.
