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. But when push
comes to shove, when a boy's life is on the line, Spenser
can speak that language too.
"Spenser is everyman's
fantasy: social critic, gourmet cook, physically fit,
sculptor, and of course, unabashed participant in a
non-destructive sexual relationship. Parker has taken his
place beside Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Ross
MacDonald." (The Boston Globe)
