God Save the Child
- A Spenser Novel
- By: Robert B. Parker
- Narrated by: Michael Prichard
- Length: 5 hrs and 3 mins
Appie Knoll is the kind of suburb where kids grow up right. But something is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Kevin Bartlett disappears. Everyone thinks he's run away -- until the comic strip ransom note arrives. It doesn't take Spenser long to get the picture -- an affluent family seething with rage, a desperate boy making strange friends...friends like Vic Harroway, body builder. Mr. Muscle is Spenser's only lead and he isn't talking...except with his fists
Early Parker, like Early Autumn. Very engaging.

Spenser meets Susan
This novel introduces Susan into Spenser's life. I had read a couple of the last few Spenser novels written before Mr. Parker died. I wanted to start with the first Spenser novel and come forward. God Save the Child is the 2nd novel in the Spenser series.....he meets Susan while on a case...................this is a great Spenser novel !
