I've read every Spencer book. Liked most of them. This was no exception. You'll want to read it straight through. I did. Like many good books in this genre you want to get to the end but are a little sad when you arrive there. The alternating chapters of dialog with Dr Silverman did start to get old but you take the bad with the good.
Like most Spencer books, you start to recognize phrases and entire sentences used in earlier books. I guess it can't be helped if you expect the book to sometimes be the reader's first exposure to Spencer.
I liked the new character Zebulon Sixkill.
There's a new character--Sixkill--a Cree Indian; but he might as well be Hawk. Same racial jokes but now focused on American Indians. I read this because it is the last of Spenser's books (published posthumously) and I've enjoyed his books for all these years. It was similar to eating my mom's last frozen container of her Sunday Spaghetti Sauce after she had passed--bittersweet but predictably good). My big complaint about the series is the silly dialogue between Susan Silverberg and Spenser. I usually skip it because it contributes nothing to the plot and I get tired of rolling my eyes at the by-rote stuff they keep repeating. My other minor complaint is it seems that Spenser lives in a world populated by people who are all masters of the pithy, witty rejoinder. Not one of his friends is ever at a loss for an understated, ironic wisecrack. It's still fun but it does stretch one's willingness to suspend disbelief. So, like the Seinfeld characters who say critical things and then add, "but having said all that" I enjoyed the book. I'm a sucker for Parker's artful writing and Parker's manly courage. Read it--it's the last one bona fide one you'll get. The new series written by someone else stinks.
This is not Robert Parker. I always loved his books and I have every one of the spenser novels. This book lacks the humor and twists that was a part of his writing. I wanted to give the new writer a chance but u can tell the difference. He should write under his own name and not hang on to someone elses work.
I have read 38 of the 39 Spensers written by Parker and enjoyed all of them to one degree or another without begrudging the time spent on any of them. Some of them are among the very best of the Hammett, Chandler type detective stories. Since this was the last of the Parker-written Spensers, I was concerned that illness or exhaustion might have impacted the quality of Sixkill, but this was not the case. Sixkill is one of the best of the bunch and was a joy to read from start to finish, and this even though Hawk does not participate. The story is interesting, based loosely on an actual historic criminal case that many older readers will recognize, the action moves along at a brisk pace, the dialogue is as crisp and fun as ever, Spenser, Quirk, Susan, Henry and the new sidekick are people you wish you knew in person, and the bad guys are wonderfully venal and creepy. If you have liked any previous Spenser, do not pass on this one. gcm
I was introduced to Robert B. Parker and Spenser with Early Autumn. From that point I went back and read every story from the beginning and for many years, I looked forward to buying my Spenser novel. I even bought one with the Author's autograph. Some books were less than great, but every book added to the story. If you read the whole series, every novel builds on the past. It is one the reasons I loved reading these books. But all things have to come to a close. When I heard that parker had passed away, I was sad, but he left a double gift - 2 Spenser novels. I pre-ordered them, then when they came, I took my time reading them. Both are strong contribution - no closure, but that's really the best way. I recommend them without hesitation.
All Robert B Parker books are awesome! This one too! My husband is blind in one eye, he has trouble focusing with good eye. Reading from a book did not work. But reading from Fire, he could enlarge the print, now he can read again. He luvs that! Thanks for making his reading easier & enjoyable.
Not the best Spenser novel, too much Susan and no Hawk. It was a sad read knowing that there would be no more Spenser books by Parker, but Ace Atkins is doing a good job carrying on the series. I've been reading these since I was a teenager so it's more nostalgia and the ever likable and humorous Spenser that brings me back time after time. The bnook follwos formula, but it's a quick read and it has its moments.
The last Spencer book brings home the fact of No more Spencer, or Hawk, or Susan, or the myriad cast of characters from the pen, typewriter, word processor, computer of one of the great character writers. Spenser has been not only a story in print but also a TV series, show, and made for TV movie. I have been reading Robert Parker's books almost as long as he has been publishing them. It took a few editions before I was introduced. I now have a complete collection of his Spencer books, his Sunny Randall, his Jesse Stone, and his Virgil westerns. Also all ended. I am a little disappointed that Hawk wasn't in this one, but I doubt Mr. Parker planned his demise and I get the privilege and enjoyment of rereading all of his books from the beginning. One of the advantages of Amazon is that I can replace the paperbacks that I bought in the beginning with hardbacks.
