Outlandish Events in the Name of Love

Susan Silverman who ran away to San Francisco calls Spenser in need of rescue. Like a Saint Bernard he hurries to her rescue; Hawk comes along it seems that he too inexplicably would do anything for Susan Silverman. They go along to various places together killing people and garnering charges. They rescue Susan; who having grown tired of her fling with Jerry Costigan is prepared to return to Boston and to Spenser. He seems to be quite willing to accept her; no questions asked. Because according to Parker there is no other woman in the world likes the shoe shopping clothes horse, girl of Spenser's dreams. Hawk of course loves her too; enough to risk his life and freedom for her. Once he has Susan back there is still the little matter of the law breaking spree that Spenser and Hawk have gone on. The U S government decides that it can all go away if they will just kill Costigan's father; an arms supplier connected with the defense industry because they are the scourge of the U S government.. Naturally Spenser and Hawk decide that murder is the way to go. After all it's all worth it if Susan has returned to Spenser. For whatever reason it's worth to him as well. Spenser is back with Susan; all is well with the world.

Great book

Wow. From the first pages I was wondering "How is Spenser going to get out of this one?" I really enjoyed it. And of course Prichard is great.
