Yes, some of the formulaic elements are getting old, but there's enough action to keep us interested anyway.

About Robert B. Parker: There is a place where crime creates an excitement and fascination; only in books or the movies

Hardcover Paperback Kindle. About Robert B. Parker: There is a place where crime creates an excitement and fascination; only in books or the movies. The reason this is true is because one is able to be part of the crime and not really be there. It is the unfolding of stunt after stunt in the mind as the crime story brings events and characters into life. Such novels, depicting finesse in creation of almost real events and characters can only be attributed to prolific authors.

Now & Then & Always & Forever by Robert B. Parker. Perhaps next time he will do better. I have always maintained one simple rule and that is NEVER speak ill of the dead. It includes a number of twists and turns as well as a number of characters that will keep you scratching your head throughout the read.

Investigating a case of infidelity sounds simple—until it plunges Spenser and his beloved Susan into a politically charged murder plot that’s already left three people dead.

Now and Then may not be as dramatic and colorful as some of the earlier Spensers, but it holds its own. Yes, some of the formulaic elements are getting old, but there's enough action to keep us interested anyway.

In this one, along with his usual tenacious pursuit of the bad guy, Spenser discusses the possibility of marriage with Susan. Who cares? Nobody. The woman is little more than an arm ornament, and a disagreeable one at that.

The important thing is, Spenser does the requisite antagonist butt kicking, which is why we keep reading.

The Spenser Series is an easy read..I started with #1 and just finished with the last book in the series. Love all of the characters that continue throughout the series. Spenser is such a great character with a semi sarcastic personality who has a hard time of taking serious people seriously. His girlfriend, who is a psychiatrist, helps him work things out mentally during cases he is handling and Hawk and various other strong male characters, help him with other cases. You will never be bored reading the Spenser Series.

Though not difficult to get a feel for the characters in this book, since I am not a regular Spenser fan it felt like I landed in the middle of an episode of a popular show everyone has been watching but me. It wasn't uncomfortable or confusing, just a trifle unusual for a series novel not to have any back story on any of the characters.

PI Spenser takes a case from a distressed husband who wants his wife followed. Spenser gets evidence of her affair on tape, but he gets more than he bargained for when he overhears some very interesting pillow talk. The FBI also finds it interesting, especially when both Spenser's client and his cheating wife are murdered. That Professor Perry Alderson, the woman's lover, seems to have no past is of interest to Spenser, and he is determined he will find out who the man really is and bring him to justice.

Wisecracking Spenser is joined by his vibrant and beautiful lover, Susan Silverman, a psychiatrist who becomes intimately involved in the case, a very lenient FBI agent friend, and a racial mishmash of thug friends who shoot to kill on reflex: Vinnie, Hawk, and Chollo. They cruise through the story trading witty banter and being too cool for their bad selves in a way that is downright smarmy. Spenser is Mr. Slick, directing both the FBI and the local cops to do his bidding, and don't worry your pretty little head over the number of bodies that pile up. They all had it coming, after all.

This is the lightest mystery I have ever read. Nancy Drew's adventures are total nail biters compared to this. Neither Spenser nor his leading lady were ever in the least amount of danger, and Spenser didn't so much as catch a stray piece of lint on his suit, much less suffer anything as traumatizing as a broken nail. I have a feeling all of this could be forgiven by Spenser fans, who might lose themselves in the flurry of clever banter among the characters, but to me it was nothing but a bit of fluff. I also tired of Spenser and Susan's incessant blase conversations about an infidelity that came off like they were discussing nothing more emotionally fraught than golf scores. The most annoying problem, however, is the fact that the author has not bothered to find another verb to use in place of SAID, and every quotation ends in he said or she said or someone said, which was more than a trifle annoying. Though I didn't think it was horrible, a book needs to have a lot more depth, a little danger, and some thrills to be worth reading. This one failed on all counts.

Spenser and Susan have never gotten over the time they split and Susan took up with another man. Now Spenser becomes entangled with an FBI agent who is married but suspects his wife of infidelity and hires Spenser to find out. Spenser finds out but the agent and his wife are both killed. Spenser is reminded of his and Susan's split and he cannot let the case drop. He and Susan discuss aspects of the case and how it reflects on their split.The FBI becomes involved but relaxes and permits Spenser to proceed and do their work for them, but interactively. Spenser is given knowledge that governmetn forces dig up. The wife's seducer is found out to be a ladies man who has assumed a false identity, is actively involved in attacking the government with the secret hope of destabilizing it and causing whatever trouble to it he can. Towards the end Spenser and Susan agree that their way of life agrees with them, the seducer is exposed and his counterfeit identity given to the FBI to straighten out. Spenser and Susan, who have been contemplating marriage seem to come to an agreement to continue to study it but Spenser is of a mind that it would not work if conventionally followed. What they have now is best for them. This is one of the few books wherein the life style of Spenser is examined in great detail but not resolved, still it helps in the book to understand its working and for future books to proceed without too much pondering over the relationship between Spenser and Susan, they can discuss the psychology of the new antagonists involved. It helps to hold the series together which I think is necessary, making this an almost must read story.
