“A novel of violence, crisp dialogue, and suspense. . . . The reader is immediately caught up in the ambience of danger.”—The Boston Globe
At forty-six, Aaron Newman was enjoying the good things in life—a good marriage, a good job—and he was in good shape himself. Then he saw the murder. A petty vicious killing that was to plunge him into an insane jungle of raw violence and fear, threatening and defiling the things he cared about.
Excellent!!! Even after all of this time. They should make a movie out of it!!!
An interesting story line that I feel could have been told without all the crude language and descriptions of violence... I do feel the basic story was an interesting slant on someone being threatened by the bad guys and his attempt at revenge. I was glad to see how the police dealt with the situation. I have read several books by Parker but was a little rough with crude language... Dirtydog
Not as good as the Spenser novels, but worth reading implausible plot and to me that hurt the story.
