Read full description of the books:
Oh, joy! It’s a Spenser story that focuses heavily on Susan. I haven’t had this much fun since the hogs ate my baby brother!
Susan’s ex-husband Brad had come to her complaining about a sexual harassment lawsuit that could bankrupt him, and Susan thinks the obvious thing to do is to have her boyfriend look into it. As Spenser repeatedly observes, “This thing showed every sign of not working out well for me.”
Despite being aware of how messy it could get, Spenser goes off to do Susan’s bidding, but Brad completely denies that there’s any real problem at all. Things get even better when Spenser finds out that lawsuit was filed by the husband of one of the alleged victims and the guy is a notorious attorney that scares the shit out of anyone associated with the judicial system in Boston. Spenser tries to talk with Susan about what’s going on but finds that she has turned into a big bag of crazy that doesn’t want to talk about her ex or her past and flies into rages at him no matter what he says or does. Spenser presses on even as thugs appear to threaten him and a nasty loan shark gets involved.
To be perfectly fair, I’m two-starring this book solely because I’ve hit my limit with Susan Silverman. Anyone who hasn’t read a lot of Spenser would probably find this an entertaining detective story with a complex boyfriend/girlfriend relationship subplot. The problem is that as someone who has read all of these and seen Susan act like an irrational bitchasaurus on numerous occasions, I found the dilemma she puts Spenser into exceedingly self-absorbed and stupid, and I had no interest in the any of the stuff about her psychological issues with men that comes out of it.
If I was Spenser, I’d drop Susan like a bad habit and call Rita Fiore to meet for martinis.
Next up: Spenser repays one of the 2457 favors he owes Hawk in Hush Money.

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database named Robert Crais, Harlan Coben and Dennis Lehane as not only influencing their own work but reviving and changing the detective genre.
Robert B. Parker was one of contemporary fiction's most popular and respected detective writers. Best known for his portrayal of the tough but erudite investigator Spenser, Parker wrote over twenty-five novels over the course of his career, which began in 1973. Parker's acclaim and his thorough background in classic detective literature helped earn him the somewhat unusual commission of completing a Philip Marlowe novel that the great Raymond Chandler had left unfinished.
Promised Land and the other Spenser novels spawned the movie Spenser: For Hire and a string of made-for-TV movies.
