Review: God Save The Child

God Save The Child
God Save The Child by Robert B. Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

God Save The Child, the second book in the Spenser series by Robert B. Parker, was very satisfying and entertaining. Maybe some of my connection to the book is that Spenser is close in character to my Jake Brand Angel’s Devil. Both are tough, caring, smarty-pants. Spenser attacks the silly veils that we all create to hide our insecurities, or worse, our evil tendencies. Breaking through the false fronts with rhetorical comments and wit, Spenser solves problems, including some of his own. It is especially enjoyable to revisit the ’70’s, the time period within which the story takes place. Parker’s description of clothing, speech characteristics and social norms seems spot on to me.
