Small Vices

Small Vices - Robert B. Parker One of the best of the Spenser books, if not the best. An excellent mystery, lots of action, plenty of soul searching around a potential life decision for Spenser and Susan, lots of twists, and a chance to call back lots of prior characters. And of course the crackling dialog we expect from our literate ex-fighter detective.
