Summary

When Robin Nevins, the son of Hawk's boyhood mentor, is denied at an exclusive university, Hawk asks Spenser to investigate. It seems the denial is tied to the suicide of a young gay activist, and as Spenser digs deeper, he is nearly drowned in a multicultural swamp of politics: black, gay, academic, and feminist.
At the same time, Spenser's inamorata, Susan, asks him to come to the aid of an old college friend, K.C. Roth, the victim of a stalker. Spenser solves the problem a bit too effectively when K.C. turns the tables and begins to stalk him.
With Hush Money, Robert B. Parker adds a morally complex tale to this legendary series.

The best listen in ages

A big fan of Jesse Stone, man of few words, this was my first experience of Spenser. A combination of witty dialogue and fabulous narration made this the most entertaining listen I've experienced for a while and I am just about to search out my next instalment of this long running series.

Parker + Spencer + Reynolds = magic I

I wish Burt Reynolds narrated more Spenser novels. Burt brings a star power to a great author - enjoy

Nice Spenser Novel

What did you love best about Hush Money?

Spenser

What other book might you compare Hush Money to and why?

Chance, Now and Then

What does Burt Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Unlike many other Spenser fans, I like Reynolds as a Spenser narrator. His voice characterizations aren't realistic, but they are entertaining.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is the stupidest question Audible asks. I realize this review format is intended to dumb things down for the slow witted, but this is too much.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the better Spenser novels. The novels in which Parker takes on the political nonsense of modern academia are entertaining, always containing the proper blend of irony and serious criticism. Susan is as irritating as ever, but that's what you get with Parker. I simply skip the chapters with Susan. Thankfully they are self-contained.
