Robert B. Parker—Now and Then (2007)

If you're new to my blog, I don't review as much as I critique—my focus is on learning from the experts. That said, I really enjoy learning from Parker. His crisp, simple dialog is my favorite. His plots are never complicated, which make for a clean story that is enjoyable to read. His characterization is superb, without clumsy descriptions out of a mirror. Best part, he never leaves the central character's mind. And Spenser's mind is fun to be in. Did I mention the scenes with Susan are sexy? I rarely give five stars for anything, but Parker always earns a couple.
