Parker, Taming a Sea-Horse (Delacorte, 1986) One of the fun things about Robert Parker?s Spenser novels is that way folks keep popping up and making Spenser?s life miserable. In this case, the poppee is April Kyle, a prostitute Spenser encountered a few years before. That story didn?t end to anyone?s satisfaction, least of all Spenser?s. Now it?s time for him to find out why. April has left the employ of the madam with whom Spenser set her up to turn tricks for her new boyfriend, a woodwind player struggling through Julliard. Or so everyone?s been told. Spenser starts asking around, and the more he asks, the less he finds out. Typical, huh? In no time, one of April?s associates who Spenser talked to is dead, and the pimp has had his face rearranged. There?s more to this than a runaway streetwalker. Enough ?more,? at least, for another Spenser novel. This isn?t one of Parker?s more elegant works, but then, a bad Spenser is still better than most anything else. It has all the hallmarks of Robert Parker. There?s some cooking, some literature, a lot of snappy one-liners, and inherent readability. What?s missing is the necessity to down the whole thing in one long swallow that pervades such Spenser gems as A Catskill Eagle and Early Autumn. But that?s comparable to a pizza with one slice gone; the rest will still taste good. ***
