    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "The Action is Non-Stop"
    Overall

    This book starts with action and it just keeps coming. The writer's medical knowledge enhances the descriptions of the fight "scenes". Character development is excellent. The ending leaves an opening for a sequel - I hope one is on the way!
    This is my first audio book in about a year and it was a great way to get back into listening. It will be a tough act to follow.

    Charley Castillo works with the Department of Homeland Security, but more and more he is the man to whom the president turns when he needs an investigation done discreetly. And no situation demands discretion more than the one before them now.

    Mark says: "Uninspired and Unfulfilling"
    "Unabridged might be better"
    Overall

    The unabridged version might have done a better job of helping me keep track of the numerous characters. Events and locations change quickly and I can't help but wonder what I missed. Still, it was good enough to want to find out how everything turns out.

    When Marlene Cowley hires Spenser to see if her husband Trent is cheating on her, he encounters more than he bargained for: not only does he find a two-timing husband, but a second investigator as well, hired by the husband to look after his wife. As a result of their joint efforts, Spenser soon finds himself investigating both individual depravity and corporate corruption.

    Jennifer says: "This is pure Parker"
    "Bad Business"
    Overall

    The first Robert Parker book I read was "Poodle Springs". I was hooked and read every book he had written. I am disappointed with this one. Spenser has lost his intensity, Hawk is practically non-existent, and Susan is a snob. They used to be such robust and likeable characters. I hope Robert Parker chooses to retire Spenser and write more books like "All Our Yesterdays" and "Double Play". Those I recommend with five stars.
