Appie Knoll is the kind of suburb where kids grow up right. But something is wrong. Fourteen-year-old Kevin Bartlett disappears. Everyone thinks he's run away--until the comic strip ransom note arrives. It doesn't take Spenser long to get the picture: an affluent family seething with rage, a desperate boy making strange friends...friends like Vic Harroway, body builder. Mr. Muscle is Spenser's only lead and he isn't talking except with his fists. But when push comes to shove, when a boy's life is on the line, Spenser can speak that language too.

A terrific little mystery, I think Parker writes the best dialogue. Spenser's smart-ass remarks are always gold.

The second of the Spenser series. Spenser meets Susan, sparks fly watch out bad guys Spenser is getting motivated and Parker is starting to hit his stride in what will become one of the best mystery/PI series ever written.
