Product description

Product Description

Spenser is back and embroiled in a deceptively dangerous and multi-layered case: someone has been killing racehorses at stables across the south, and the Boston P.I. travels to Georgia to protect the two-year old destined to become the next Secretariat. When Spenser is approached by Walter Clive, president of the Three Fillies Stables, to find out who is threatening his horse Hugger Mugger, he can hardly say no: he's been doing pro bono work for so long his cupboards are just about bare. Disregarding the resentment of the local Georgia law enforcement, Spenser takes the case. Though Clive has hired a separate security firm, he wants someone with Spenser's experience to supervise the operation. Despite the veneer of civility, Spenser encounters tensions beneath the surface southern gentility. The case takes an even more deadly turn when the attacker claims a human victim, and Spenser must revise his impressions of the Three Fillies organization - and watch his own back as well.

This is the first ever novel I have read in the Spenser series, and while I loved the snappy writing, I didn't really like some of the characters in the family he was investigating. As it's set in Georgia USA, we have the stereotypical drink-sozzled and man-eating Southern belles, and a man who is practically a paedophile but the author seems to be OK with that.
For those who are more experienced Spenser fans, there is no Hawk in this novel and plenty of Susan. I'm not sure why Susan gets so much negativity heaped on her head by a lot of Parker's fans, but apparently she does, so if you don't like her skip this book and try another.
The ending is a little indecisive for some tastes, so if you want all your loose ends tied up neatly in a box with a bow, this novel may not satisfy. As for me, I enjoyed the writing and the pace enough to try another of Parker's Spenser novels.

This book possesses one of the most original plots, and certainly most original structure, of any of this world famous series. Our man Spenser is hired by the very wealthy Clive Family to protect the interest of a horse (of all things) - admittedly, a horse bound for superstardom and mega wealth for its owners - after failed assassination attempts at other horses on the same property brought the existence of a lunatic to the attention of everyone in town. This book will stand out, too, because for once, it is not set in Beautiful, Downtown Boston. Spenser heads south to Georgia, without the majority of his friends and associates. Hawk is in France on personal business, Susan is busy educating and analysing the lucky few back home who come across her. Captain Quirk is busy running the Boston Police Force and Vinnie and his associates are all busy being busy.

So our Spenser is forced to make new friends. And he does, as well as one or two (short term) enemies. They are a very tight knit group, The Clives. Also *very, very* powerful. So powerful, in fact, that their domination of the running of the town almost ruins the story. In fact, it does, up to a point. Spenser is closed out of the investigation by a sudden plot twist as you approach the halfway mark, and before you know it, he is back with the woman he belongs to, in the town where he belongs, solving a minor but potentially ugly case of stalking. Solve this, he does, but before the reader can say ’Spenser Is Cool’ he is hired by a different member of the Clive family to get back down to Georgia to finish what he started.

And this is where the book *really* gets interesting.

As i have already said, HUGGER MUGGER is unique for several reasons.

Not his best. Didn't quite hang together. But still up there high above most other writers. I shall miss him.
