Reviews (7)
one of the best Spenser books so far. got to see plenty of older characters and their personalities as well as one new one. did miss out on Hawk but the others made up for it. was good story plot and character relationships. I have read all Spenser books in order up to this one. was not required to read in sequence but it helps some..... when they refer to old personalities in the past. but this book was quite independent of others.
Classic Spencer

This stand-alone is easy to follow and difficult to put down. No editing or formatting errors. No drag-you-down drama. Negligible violence.

Intriguing, emotional storyline with plenty of twists. Believable characters with distinct personalities. As always, thought-provoking dialogue.

I will re-read this story and am glad it is available on Kindle.
Since Robert Parker's death a few years ago, no one has come along to fill that huge void. I find myself scouring through his old titles to find something that I missed and so far have been able to find treasure. Paper Doll is no exception. Some day I will run out of titles but for now, at least, there is still some excellent reading.
Parker fans, beware that the Robert Parker estate sold the rights to the Parker name to other authors. Look carefully at the next Robert Parker title that you better buy. Make sure that it was actually written by Parker. I was fooled once but not again. There's only one Robert Parker.
This is yet another great story with a favorite detective, one who narrates in speech that reminds me of Detective Joe Friday from the old TV series "Dragnet". The plot is nicely complicated and has some good twists to frustrate the reader. The characters are well-developed and interesting. I'd like to have seen a little more action, but still a winner.
I'm a fan of the entire series, and A Catskill Eagle may still be my favorite , but this novel is superb in every way: virtuosic writing, deep insights into race, class, region, and gender, and a mystery with great emotional range and resonance. It's expert work that's fully felt. Top marks!
I like when the killer is the least likely and is never revealed to the end after much investigation that no one else but Spenser would go to the depth to pursue. Good graphic description of scenes and characters.
If you like the series, you'll love this one. Snappy one liners and food talk aside, it's a good stoe
I have read many, many of the Spencer books. Some I liked better than others. I rank this one close to the top. Spencer is hired to find out who killed Olivia Nelson. She was killed with many blows to the head with a hammer. The police have done all they can to find the killer but had no success. Spencer is hired by Olivia's husband. A trip is made back to a town in South Carolina, where Olivia Nelson came from. But is her real name Olivia Nelson? Yes, there is a person by that name but where is she? Why would a Senator want to keep Spencer from finding out anything? Spencer in jail?????? Many, many twists and turns. The ending is very good, really two endings, finding the killer and finding out about the senator. A good Spencer read! The only thing that would make it better, for me, would be less Susan and more Hawk.
