    2 of 2 people found the following review helpful: A surprise or two for Spenser fans, January 6, 2003 Reviewer: Neal Clark Reynolds from E. Taunton, MA United States There's more than one interesting twist in this installment of the Spenser series, evidence that Parker's working hard to stay out of a rut. First, this is a bit more serious than usual in that the unknown killer is a psychopathic serial killer. Our hero isn't quite up to his usual quota of wisecracks. Secondly, some of the narrative is from the killer's viewpoint, a first for a Spenser novel. Thirdly, there is a hint at the Harry Bosch type conflict between solving a case and playing police politics & protecting the police image. (This was written 4 years before the first of the Connolly series) And fourth, there's a real testing of Spenser's relationship with Susan as there's a serious conflict between his need to protect her and her need for autonomy & adherence to her profession's practice of condifentiality between doctor & patient. The reader might have a bit of trouble suspending disbelief over the points of Spenser's openly working with the Boston police and of the extreme coincidental factor, but it is an entertaining read up to the average Spenser.
