Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

In fine form here, Parker's sardonic Boston PI Spenser, last seen in Paper Dolls , encounters danger, venality and plenty of comic material in this brisk tale spanning the worlds of experimental theater and illegal immigration. While he'd rather be at work renovating the old farmhouse that he and his lover, psychiatrist Susan, have bought in nearby Concord, Spenser agrees to find out who is following the Artistic Director of the Port City Theater Company, on whose board of directors Susan sits. The detective is utterly bored by a performance of the latest production in Port City, "a town 50% Portuguese and 50% Chinese"--until one of the actors is fatally shot from the audience. The shooter gets away, leaving Spenser with murder to probe as well. After talking to one of the board members, Spenser is warned out of Port City by the woman's husband, an important member of a Boston tong. The threat prompts a call to his old pals Hawk and Vinnie, who, he notes, blend in to the theatrical scene "like two coyotes at a poultry festival." As Spenser discovers that the influx of Chinese illegals into the area is being overlooked by the Port City Chief of Police, an actress in the company reports that she too is being followed. Another murder and a kidnapping occur before the mysteries are resolved and Spenser can get back to his sledgehammer. Although the detective lags in reaching a conclusion readers may have sussed out earlier, the expected pleasures of an adroit Spenser adventure are here in full supply. BOMC selection.

From Library Journal

The latest from the best-selling author of Paper Doll (Putnam, 1993) is a whodunit starring the redoubtable Spenser. According to the publicist, Parker breaks new ground with a truly ambitious plot.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Spencer Mystery by Robert Parker 21 juillet 2016
Par M. Thomson - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This mystery by the late Robert Parker was chosen as a book club selection by a member who has read many Parker mysteries. There was a chuckle off and on in the story which made the narrative interesting. I may read one more mystery by Robert Parker who is now dead; his novels are now being republished. The story's twists and turns kept you going but it wasn't the most exciting mystery I have read. You may learn more about theater groups, illegal Chinese smuggling and/or east coast towns whose economies have failed and been reborn in a different fashion. With so many books lined up to read, this may be the first and last Parker mystery that I read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AN ALL TIME GREAT DETECTIVE STORY! 28 septembre 2013
Par Greggorio! - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
When Spenser and the ever-delightful Susan Silverman attend the local presentation of an esoteric play in the small coastal town of Port City, the last thing they expect to witness is a murder. But murder it is and to stretch the shock factor even further, the said murder happens on stage in front of a full house. Robert B Parker was always a cool hand at coming up with original plots and suspense-building events and this book is no exception. The local constabulary, for once, welcomes Spenser's unofficial assistance, as neither party has any idea who the killer is. Nor do they know why. A seemingly forgotten complaint of stalking of the local drama society's chief bureaucrat, which opened the tale, has seemingly fizzled down to a state of near irrelevance but with the world class writing skills of Mr Parker on show, the reader would be a fool to make that assumption.

WALKING SHADOW is classic Spenser. Indeed, the tale reads like a world class thriller until it settles down and finds its groove as an example of the classic genre-defining murder mystery series created by Mr Parker back in the 1970's.

The baddies start to appear as you approach the century page mark of the book and they really are outstanding and easy to dislike. Characterisation in the series is always a strong point, and 25 books in, if you aren't emotionally attached to the good guys by now, you never will be. Even reading of the innocent joy and happiness displayed by Pearl the Wonder Dog around Susan is enough to generate moisture around your eyes.

Yet another highly entertaining and essential purchase from Robert B Parker.
As a footnote to this review, I would like to say that some of the books in the Spenser series evolve from being simply great crime novels into outstanding works of literature. Some books are required reading due to their strong (and still relevant) social conscience. SCHOOL DAYS is still stuck in my memory, months after I finished reading it. WALKING SHADOW has - even today - relevant social connotations as well, but is significant mainly due to the incredibly high quality of the prose and story telling found within its covers. Some of the phraseology is Hemingwayesque in quality and when the reader comes across these sections, they really do change the tone of the book.

And of course the ending was not entirely unexpected (to me) but unless you are completely on top of this one, it will come as a cascading series of shocks and surprises that will leave the reader with tears in their eyes and completely covered in goosebumps.

WALKING SHADOW is that good. It is simply one of the all time great detective novels.

I enjoyed this book because I love the characters in the the Spencer series and I laugh out loud at his dry wit. Although much of the plot was predictable, I didn't guess the outcome. A great vacation read or perfect for bedtime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Parker does it again! 4 février 2014
Par Thomas M. Shepard - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
My only regret comes from the fact that finishing "Walking Shadow" puts me one book closer to the end of the late Robert B. Parker' s amazing body of work. As always, Parker develops his characters magnificently and blends humor, honor, and the requisite bending the rules just enough so that they don't break but enough to get the job done. Add incredible writing to the mix and you have another great read by Robert Parker.
