Boston PD Belson's second wife is missing. Then Belson is shot and Spencer needs to find her. Some great plot twists. The villain is 3-dimensional; his insanity explained. Is it Stockholm syndrome that in the end, you feel pity for him?

Also a journey of discovery for Belson's wife whose "Life-Before-Belson" Spencer slowly uncovers while doing what he does best, asking questions and watching to see who becomes annoyed.

A reliable read. Good pace; good plot; interesting point-of-view changes between the captive wife and Spencer. Chollo makes an appearance because Spencer needs someone who speaks Spanish and Hawk is in Burma. (Don't ask - not explained or necessary to the plot)

These books, like many police/private eye novels, are as much about the journey as the destination. We know that Spencer will survive and beat the bad guys. But who are they and how will he do it?

These are always a fun read. I recommend reading the books in... Read more
I'm a fan of Parker's. I reread him regularly. Great dialogue, hairy predicaments -- what's not to like? This book, however, is an oddity. It is central to the arc of the entire series (it lets us know more of Sgt. Belson), but it's a bit of a letdown. Someone has kidnapped Belson's wife, and Belson asks Spenser for help. The book is told from two points of view: the kidnap victim as she waits for rescue, and Spenser as he tries to find her. However, I find the book relatively weak. The danger in which the woman finds herself is melodramatic, the kidnapper not quite believable. Nevertheless, there are virtuoso passages, particularly the rescue, that show Parker at his best. Nevertheless, overall I'd have to call it minor Spenser.
When the wife of a Boston cop disappears, nobody knows if she left town from choice. No note has been found, and the situation has left said cop in the quintessential quarry as he has no idea why she left, what he did wrong, or if she even intends to come back. The more time passes, the more suspicious the case gets and sooner rather than later, our man Spenser will join the hunt. With or without the husband's permission.

After the heady heights, excitement found in THE JUDAS GOAT, THIN AIR appears like a refreshing change for the reader as the story revolves around, and stays in, good old Boston, USA. ThIs is a classic, serious detective story which focuses on the disappearance and presumed discovery of the said missing woman. No room for the standard character-based witticisms but there is certainly plenty of educational and romantic interplay between Spense, Suze, and Pearl the Wonder Dog.

This is a seriously good detective story with touches of... Read more
