Overview

The adoring wife of a senatorial candidate has a smile as sweet as candy and dots her "i's" with little hearts. A blond beauty, she is the perfect mate for an ambitious politician, but she has a little problem with sex and drugs--a problem someone has managed to put on videotape.

The big boys figure a little blackmail will put her husband out of the race. Until Spenser hops on the candidate's bandwagon.

But getting back the tape of the lady's X-rated indiscretion is a nonstop express ride to trouble--trouble that is deep, wide and deadly.

anything by robert b. parker gets my vote. i miss this great mystery writer. his books gripped my interest, but they were also replete with humor. i think i've read everything he wrote, including the hitch/cole books, the jesse stone series and the sunny randall books. there was even one about baseball.

Spenser in DC, squeezing a crime boss, protecting a fundamentalist candidate, digging around in sleaze again. The true heir to Mickey Spillane. But not enough Hawk!
