First, there's Jill herself. She's spoiled, arrogant, drugged out -- made worse by fear. Someone is out to get her -- does she imagine it, or is it real?
Spenser monitors her neurosis, but finds evidence of harassment. It escalates to murder. Now begins the dangerous part -- while the act may have ended, the murderer lingers on.

"Stardust is a four-star noir suspense that no Spenser fan will be able to resist." (Publisher's Source)
Crack another case with Spenser.
I'm constantly listening to recorded books. Right now I'm a bit sick and weak, but can still enjoy a good listen. I'm so glad I have this resource available.
I'm biased in favor of Parker's Spenser novels, I like all that I've listened to. There's always snappy dialogue and fast moving plot. This novel was great. I highly recommend it.
No. A pretty predictable plot
A Parker fan probably wants them all. There are others I would recommend before this one for a casual listener.
I like all the various Spenser narrators. Montegna is my favorite. Prichard is fine however.
I would put this one about in the middle of all the Spencer books as the plot isn't as good as many others.
Worthy effort at detective noire, but modern setting gets in the way of nostalgic attitudes. Also the constant he-said and she-said does not work audiotorily.
