“[Robert B.] Parker's brilliance is in his simple dialogue, and in Spenser.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer
A bitter divorce is only the beginning. First the father hires thugs to kidnap his son. Then the mother hires Spenser to get the boy back. But as soon as Spenser senses the lay of the land, he decides to do some kidnapping of his own.
With a contract out on his life, he heads for the Maine woods, determined to give a puny 15 year old a crash course in survival and to beat his dangerous opponents at their own brutal game.
Parker is a master storyteller with wisdom that enriches as well as entertains. l highly recommend this book.
Marvelous read. A little different from most Spenser yarns, yet five stars and more.
This is the first book I read by Robert b Parker and it's my favorite
