Review: The Godwulf Manuscript

The Godwulf Manuscript
The Godwulf Manuscript by Robert B. Parker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A friend of mine was aghast that I had never read a Spenser novel before. “You write detective crime thrillers and you haven’t read Spenser?!” she said. I hid my embarrassment and asked her suggestion for where to start. She said to start at the beginning, so I did. The Godwulf Manuscript is the first of Robert B. Parkers Spenser series. A very entertaining story about a private detective who had been hired by a University to retrieve a rare and fragile manuscript. Like all good cases, this one turns out to be more involved and complex than the theft of the manuscript.

Mr Parker has an easy flowing writing style that’s comfortable to read and follow. His characters are quirky and interesting. An all around enjoyable adventure. It’s quite a compliment when people mention that there’s a bit of Spenser in my PI character Jake Brand. Listening to friends book suggestions is also a wise idea.
