    “You like these turnovers?” — Hawk“Yes” — Spenser“Place in Mattapan makes the crust with lard way it’s supposed to be made” — Hawk“That would make them illegal in Cambridge” — SpenserOn the heels of Parker’s fun homage to The Magnificent Seven with Potshot he returned to plotting and mystery with Widow’s Walk a pretty good story which has a lot of Rita Fiore — always a plus — and some sparkling exchanges between Hawk and Spenser such as the above There is also this one as Spenser walks into his office to discover Hawk has his feet propped up on Spenser’s desk while he reads Simon Schama’s History of Britain“You interested in British History?” — Spenser“Naw Read this dude’s book on Rembrandt I like him” — Hawk“Lot of big words” — Spenser“Thought you could help me” — Hawk“White man’s burden Gimme my chair” — SpenserWidow’s Walk begins when Rita hires Spenser to help her with the defense of Mary Torricelli Smith She’s accused of murdering her sugar daddy Nathan Smith a much older — thirty years older — and extremely wealthy man Every piece of evidence points to her guilt so completely that the DA has what appears to be an open and shut case But of course there is Rita the best and sexiest attorney in the business and Spenser To give you an idea of why she is such a breath of fresh air when she’s around in this series consider one of her first comments to Spenser “You still with that prissy Jewess?”Before Spenser speaks with Mary however he is warned about her when Lieutenant Quirk suggests that Spenser not allow her to attempt brain surgery It’s a well earned swipe because once Spenser meets the blonde he realizes she might well be the dumbest woman on the planet She has a PR consultant constantly by her side named Larson Graff who seems to do very little but pick up a check Then there’s a low life named Jack DeRosa who swears Mary hired him to bump off the old guy And there’s a bankerstock broker named Brinkman involved in the case And an insurance guy named Bannister who claims Mary won’t allow him to give Spenser information which Spenser later learns may not be true And someone is following Spenser around as he questions people And then it gets really tangledThis one is a rather complicated little mystery for a Spenser from this period When Spenser gets a girl at the bank named Amy Peterson fired because she spoke to him she ends up dead when he misjudges a situation Soon everyone Spenser talks with ends up in the morgue The people following him make a run at him and people end up dead But Spenser still doesn’t have a clue why Something called Soldier’s Field Development seems to be at the heart of the case but Spenser appears to have a lot of pieces which don’t form a cohesive picture of anything much less point to anyone other than Rita’s empty headed client as the killerOkay this is where there are some minor ticks to this one Early on Spenser learns than Mary’s sugar daddy was a confirmed bachelor who liked “mentoring” young boys He also learns that Jack DeRosa’s attorney is the very uptown and very pretty Ann Kiley daughter of Bob Kiley which makes no sense And Nathan’s bank partner Marvin Conroy fires Amy Peterson simply for speaking with Spenser All of those separately should set Spenser sniffing around them like a dog in the park but he seems to take forever to do so as he lets a lot of other things take precedence The case is fairly complex and Spenser does eventually look into each but it was kind of glaring that it didn’t happen soonerMeanwhile there is a side story about Susan being in a funk because some politically incorrect therapy she has had some success with didn’t work with one of her patients and he took his own life It’s a subject Parker has tackled briefly before within the series — the controversial therapy — but it seems an excuse this time out to give Susan some space in a story which didn’t need her It does however limit her involvement for the most part allowing this one to delve into the mystery and plot so than usual especially at this point in the seriesThis one has a couple of well written action sequences especially the one near the end as Spenser uses a ruse to confront a killer in the rain A much satisfying mystery than readers usually got at this point in the series Most fans were continuing to gobble them up because of the swift pacing and snappy dialog which Parker did as well — and perhaps better — than just about anyone before or since Probably a 375 for me so I’ll round up to four as enjoyable entertainment
