Spenser is back. The fourth novel featuring the wisecracking boxer-turned private-detective finds him investigating a marriage in turmoil, a shady business deal, a nefarious loan shark and, of course, a murder. The real charm of the book, however, is Spenser himself, his inimitable wit, his keen grasp of human nature, his love of food and good beer, and his reluctant but capable fists.

Spenser and Susan working together and arguing over their relationship. Ah, feminism at the fore and kooks killing for guns. Hard to believe but that was the reality in the 60's to the end of the 70's. This book is a set up for problems in the future twix Spenser and Susan and the introduction of Hawk to the mix. Previous Spenser girlfriends appear to be doomed-or are they?

I'm torn on this one. Enjoyed the characters but the armed revolutionary feminists made me roll my eyes. A little too much dated politics and 70s-style psyche/self-help to hold my attention like the others in this series but hey, the book was written in 1976 and it is what it is.
