Praise for Robert B. Parker:
‘Nobody does it better’ Publishers Weekly
‘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’ Boston Globe
‘Spenser is a constant revelation for even long-time Parker fans’ Milwaukee Sentinel
‘One of the great series in the history of the detective story’ New York Times Book Review
‘Reading Parker is like swimming downstream in a river of adrenaline’ Boston Observer
‘Robert Parker is still top gun in the tough-guy school of fiction’ Playboy
‘Spenser gives the tribe of hard-boiled wonders a new vitality and complexity’ Chicago Sun-Times
‘The sassiest, funniest, most-enjoyable-to-read-about private eye around today… the legitimate heir to the Hammett-Chandler-Macdonald tradition’ Cincinnati Post
‘Reading a Spenser novel is like a family reunion – it makes one feel good’ Library Journal
