Susan asks Spenser to help her ex-husband Brad Sterling (Silverman being too Jewish) who has come to her with a sob story about being broke. Strangely enough he informs Spenser that she's an overwrought woman being too melodramatic. In the meantime she's extremely bitchy towards Spenser who has taken on the case pro bono in order to help her ex solely because she asks him. Naturally Spenser accepts this with equanimity; and along with his pal Hawk they go through thugs on both sides of the law to get to the truth. In the meantime Spenser and the evidently weirdly compelling Susan Silverman work through her problem in a highly Freudian way though it hasn't been the therapy of choice since the 1960's. Despite all the negatives this is an action filled, fast paced mystery that delivers what we've come to expect from Parker's first icon.

This reader CANNOT do Parker. Those of us who love the English language, and who love rhythm that authors create, look forward to someone reading who understands that musical magic. This guy is TERRIBLE. Everywhere there's a period (which is very frequent with Parker!) he reads as a comma or a question mark. It's EXCRUTIATING. AWFUL. PLEASE do not let this guy read Parker again, and I really want my money back.
