Spenser is..."The sassiest, funniest, most-enjoyable-to-read-about private eye around today...the legitimate heir to the Hammett-Chandler-Macdonald tradition." --The Cincinnati Post
Spenser is..."Tougher, stronger, better educated, and far more amusing than Sam Spade, Phil Marlowe, or Lewis Archer...Spenser gives the connoisseur of that rare combination of good detective fiction and good literature a chance to indulge himself." --The Boston Globe

Looking for Rachel Wallace
Haven't read a Robert Parker I didn't like! Some are just better than others. Would give this one an 8.

Looking for Rachel
As usual, Robert Parker is very subtle under a skin of bravado.
He handles the Lesbian angle with great delicacy.
