It helps to keep these series books separate, you know Many of the early themes of the Spenser mysteries appear here the emotional dangers of the suburbs, ethical nobility, women s general sexiness, and the foolishness of various anti establishment movements Spenser is hired by Harv Shepard, a wheel and deal land developer contractor to find his wife who has disappeared without a note, and leaving their two children behind Spenser is all alone in the suburbs of the Cape, and he is hoping that Susan will come up and join him for a relatively simple case Only it turns out not so simple when they run into Hawk leaving Harv s home Spenser A real period piece the plot screams 1970s , but an important book in the series, despite being a lesser title For it introduces Hawk.

Nothingcan be said then what I have said previously of the other three novels I ve read Great characters and decent plot Oh onething Hawk is pretty bad ass.
Spenser gets hired to track down a business man s missing wife His search for the wife leads him to a group of militant feminists and he quickly discovers the husband is in debt to a local loan shark, King Powers Can Spenser get the couple back together without being gunned down by the King This is the fourth Spenser book I ve read and my favorite so far Spenser s inner nature is explored, his relationship with Susan Silverman progresses, he passes up some easy tail for once, and he runs into Hawk, the bad ass black man against which all others should be measured I ll admit, I m barely old enough to remember Spenser for Hire but I sure remember Avery Brooks as Hawk.
The two different plots were well done and I was pleased at how Spenser made them intersect Spenser s character continues to develop beyond the Philip Marlowe detective stereotype.
Any gripes Not really I don t rea Spenser Is A Wisecracking Former Boxer Turned Private Investigator And He Is Just Settling Into His New Office When Enters Harv Shepard, A Beleaguered Businessman Who Is Looking For Someone To Help Locate His Runaway Wife So Begins Promised Land, The Fourth Novel By Robert Parker, That Follows The Exploits Of His Cerebral But Tough Character, Detective Spenser Why Harv Shepard S Wife Abandoned Her Family And Exactly Where She Has Gone Comprise Only Half The Intrigue In This Story, Though Spenser Soon Discovers That Harv Is A Man In Deep Trouble, Involved With A Crooked Loan Shark And Tangled In An Ailing Business Venture Took me a while to figure out if Spenser was a private detective or a Boston food critic in this one as it seemed as if every thing I was reading was about what food and drinks were offered at a local restaurant or hotel lounge I thought Bubba was going to start naming all the different ways one could prepare shrimp at one point If one can get through that and all of Susan s distractions it s not a totally bad book just not what I m used to with a Spenser book.
It was good I chuckled periodically I like the way Spenser talks and thinks.
This was my first Parker book It s number 4 in the Spenser series It s typical first person private eye solving a typical mystery with a happy ending It s not a wow kind of book, but I enjoyed it It has good characters and good dialogue This author is different due to his sense of humor He says unexpected things.
The ending was weak In the spoiler I am not giving away the main mysteries view spoiler It was not clear to me why the loan shark would not seek revenge against hubby or Spenser hide spoiler Spenser mystery number 4 didn t do it for me A weird story line with radical feminists looking to buy guns I know the seventies were strange, but still.
Also, lots of relationship angst and tiresome group therapy sessions A dull denouement with not much action Meeting Hawk was the one redeeming feature.
