Spenser (What’s his first name? Who knows.) is a smart-talking Boston private investigator with a heart of gold who lives by a code of honor. A former boxer and state trooper, he’s now on his own, often working with his friend, Hawk, and his longtime love, Dr. Susan Silverman, a psychologist. Even though the stories are filled with dialog, the events are fast-paced and the writing sparse, making for a quick read.
