    1. Parker thought he'd answered the race issue by inserting Hawk in here ("But my good friend is") and by making Spenser rail on his client for racist language. Yeah.Now I'm gonna go read one of his Sunny books, to see how he writes a detective who doesn't spend 60% of their time trying to look up women's skirts, or rating them on a scale of "Doability". And we thought the 70s were progressiveAgain, Spenser's ready to commit to Susan in this novel, and they discuss feminisim with some actual radica [...]

    2. This collection of three novels could be titled, “The Evolution of Spenser.” The “Godwulf Manuscript” is the first in the series of Spenser novels and it introduces the police characters of Quirk and Belson. Susan Silverman is only mentioned and Spenser is depicted as a randy man, very willing to hop in bed with women he encounters.

    3. Finished book one and I'm struck by how different the times were when this book was written. I'm enjoyed The Goodwulf Manuscript. I find it funny when he describes what Spenser is cooking or what a person is wearing (I often think, I would have worn that). I'm enjoying this series. Since the next book in under this cover is book 3 (I'm don't understand why) I'll be back to reading this when I've finished book 2. Read book 3. The macho Spenser is still holding my interest. Since I'm not a basebal [...]

    4. Formulaic, somewhat, but LOVE the characters and the plots hold up well enough that htis is one of my favorite "junk read series' of all time." Even the terrible made for TV movies are good!

    5. Liked Re-reading this. Watching cast grow was part of the 'catch' in RBP fan base. Nicely plotted, light language, no gore. Well narrated. Recommended.

    6. If you like the TV series Spenser you definitely have to read this great crime story. Intriguing story, full of suspense. A clear recommendation!
