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

  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Early Parker, like Early Autumn. Very engaging.

Spenser meets Susan

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 05-07-11

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 !
