Sam Sattler

It feels like I read this one about 100 years ago...and it set me off on my love of the Spenser character. I finally did reach burnout not too long before Parker's death, but I still have a fondness for Spenser and Hawk and how they were so loyal to each other. One of my favorite parts of the Spenser books is the banter between those two.

When I read these pre-tech noirish novels nowadays, the thing that strikes me the most is the lack of cellphones. Seems like the good guys can never find a phone when they need one the most.
