    Spenser knows something's amiss the moment Dennis Doherty walks into his office. The guy's aggressive yet wary, in the way men frightened for their marriages always are. So when Doherty asks Spenser to investigate his wife Jordan's abnormal behavior, Spenser agrees. A job's a job, after all.

    Elaine says: "a good one!"
    "Not good"
    Overall

    I like Joe Mantegna a lot but he reads this book as if he's making fun of it. I do not think Robert Parker writes great literature but I have enjoyed his books in the past as good escapist fare. The thing is you look at his picture on the cover and then you read about all these stunningly beautiful and super smart characters and it's like "poor guy, I guess we all need our fantasies". I appreciate some of the other genre writers who allow their characters a few human failings. I would not buy this book or download it if I had it to do over. Check it out of the library.
