When Robin Nevins, the son of Hawk's boyhood mentor, is denied at an exclusive university, Hawk asks Spenser to investigate. It seems the denial is tied to the suicide of a young gay activist, and as Spenser digs deeper, he is nearly drowned in a multicultural swamp of politics: black, gay, academic, and feminist.
At the same time, Spenser's inamorata, Susan, asks him to come to the aid of an old college friend, K.C. Roth, the victim of a stalker. Spenser solves the problem a bit too effectively when K.C. turns the tables and begins to stalk him.
With Hush Money, Robert B. Parker adds a morally complex tale to this legendary series.
"Reynolds's portrayal of detective Spenser is on target - intelligent, tough, and sensual." (AudioFile Magazine)

Worst reading ever of a Spenser book.
Nice Spenser Novel
Chance, Now and Then
Unlike many other Spenser fans, I like Reynolds as a Spenser narrator. His voice characterizations aren't realistic, but they are entertaining.
This is the stupidest question Audible asks. I realize this review format is intended to dumb things down for the slow witted, but this is too much.
This is one of the better Spenser novels. The novels in which Parker takes on the political nonsense of modern academia are entertaining, always containing the proper blend of irony and serious criticism. Susan is as irritating as ever, but that's what you get with Parker. I simply skip the chapters with Susan. Thankfully they are self-contained.
