I was disappointed in Prichard's uninspired reading of what I've always thought was one of the better Spenser novels. I think I'd avoid his narrations in future.

Michael Prichard was not nearly the narrator that Joe Mantegna is in the later Spenser novels and this one needed all the help it could get. This selection seems to be more a paean to Susan as a psychotherapist than it is a work of detective fiction. Still it is a short, fast paced story that doesn't linger too long and ultimately reveals, albeit a bit too neatly, the means, method, motive, and opportunity and wraps up fully and easily. If you like Spenser you'll enjoy this effort at least somewhat, while still being disappointed and wishing Parker had been able to write more books as good as Early Autumn and Looking For Rachel Wallace.
