Thumbs up for Perish Twice by Robert B. Parker. Mystery.
Let it be said that Parker is one of my favorite writers. More fool me that I picked up Perish Twice in order to admire his descriptive powers, intending to read no more than a paragraph, because I promptly got sucked into the story. This was the first Sunny Randall I’d ever read, and I don’t get why people shun these in favor of the Spensers and the Stones (these being his detectives). C’mon, Sunny is just Spenser in a skirt. This one is in fact better than some of the Spensers.
“‘I’m a detective,’ I said. ‘That means, concretely, that I like to detect things; and, abstractly, that I have some concern with justice.'”
