Kurzbeschreibung

Everybody loves a winner, and the Rabbs are major league. Marty is the Red Sox star pitcher, Linda the loving wife. She loves everyone except the blackmailer out to wreck her life.

Is Marty throwing fast balls or throwing games? It doesn't take long for Spenser to link Marty's performance with Linda's past...or to find himself trapped between a crazed racketeer and an enforcer toting an M-16.

America's favorite pastime has suddenly become a very dangerous sport, and one wrong move means strike three, with Spenser out for good!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Crime and National Pastime 12. Februar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Im dritten Teil der Spenser-Saga dreht der liebenswerte Privatschnüffler aus Boston so richtig auf. Reihenweise verführt er die Frauen, er offenbart seine dunkle Seite, exekutiert zwei Mafiosis und vertrimmt einen Tae Kwon Do-Kämpfer.

Der Plot ist dieses Mal eng mit des Amerikaners liebster Freizeitbeschäftigung verbunden: Baseball. Mit seinem Einsatz im Milieu der Red Sox schien Spenser schon einmal ein frühes Vorbild für den guten Myron Bolitar zu liefern. Der löst zwar erst ein Vierteljahrhundert später seinen ersten Baseball-Fall (The Final Detail (Myron Bolitar)). Es macht aber Spaß, die Parallelen zu entdecken. Würde Win von Spenser eigentlich genauso übel Haue bekommen?

Zurück zur Story: Einem All-American-Baseball-Star unterlaufen hin und wieder unerklärliche Fehler. Der Manager seines Teams beauftragt Spenser damit, herauszufinden, ob Spiele verschoben werden. Spenser, der sich als Autor tarnt, kommt den Spielern und der Familie des Stars näher. Auf der Suche nach Ungereimtheiten wirbelt der Mann mit dem einarmigen Liegestütz allerhand Staub auf. Bostoner Gangster, ein New Yorker Pimp und die Puffmutter eines Edel-Etablissements werden befragt und von Spensers großer Klappe sichtlich zermürbt.

Nebenbei spielen auch weiterhin Frauen, Sport und gutes Essen zentrale Rollen in Spensers Leben, sodass man sich am Ende fragt, wie Robert B. Parker es jedes Mal schafft, das alles unter einen Hut zu bringen. Den einzigen Sterne Abzug gibt es von mir für den Mangel an wirklicher Herausforderung.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Spenser on the brink of values 6. Februar 2006
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
In his third novel, Spenser has to go to the brink of his values and mankinds rules to solve an obvious deadlock. In this case of indirect blackmail (you'll know what I mean when you read it), an innocent player of the Boston Red Sox does everything to repay his and his beloved wives debts from the past. When almost losing his carreer as a top pitcher and everything else that matters for him, Spenser steps in and takes drastic measures to get him out. This story is fun and at the same time it is fear when you realize what it takes to solve this case. I still do not know, whether I like Spenser more than ever for his bravery or whether I disapprove his entire behavior. In any case, this again is a great story and you should definitely read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent 21. Januar 2000
Von Harmoni
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the 3d in the Spenser series.
Next to Sandy Kofax, Marty Rabb is the best pitcher Spenser has ever seen. Rabb is with the Red Sox, and someone in the organization hires Spenser to find out if there is any truth in the hint of a whisper that he is throwing games or allowing hits.
There are lots of laughs in this story, especially in the first half. Spenser is also quite introspective. He sleeps with Brenda Loring twice, and, while that disturbed me, I liked what he thought when he first kissed her: "There is excitement in a new kiss, but there is a quality of memory and intimacy in kissing someone you've kissed often before. I liked the quality. Maybe continuity is better than change."
Brenda is not dating Spenser exclusively, and there is no mention whether Susan is. At one point, Spenser needs to talk about something, and he realizes that Brenda is only for fun times and that he can discuss serious issues with Susan. This story presages the commitment to each other made by Susan and Spenser in _Promised Land_.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best of the Spenser series 8. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
It's been a while since I've read this, but it's always been my favorite. Spenser wisecracks, gets tough, and does his usual business. This is probably the set-up to the Parker formula, with Spenser coming up with a plot to rope all the villains together. Except in this novel, Spenser actually feels remorse. It's something that always bothered me about the Spenser series, he can kill without caring, but in this novel (as in CATSKILL EAGLE) Spenser feels the death in the pit of his stomach. A great read. If you haven't read Parker yet, this is the one!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Parker knocks one out of the park! 23. August 2002
Von Neal C. Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the second Spenser book I've read, and it's definitely a home run.
Spenser's hired to find out if the Boston Red Sox' leading pitcher is on the take or not, gets involved with a few nice folks and quite a few who aren't as nice. The characters and their interplay with Spenser help make this a superior P. I. story. The pitcher and his wife, the madame of a New York bordello, a flashy pimp, a flamboyant sports announcer and his bubblegum chewing martial arts expert assistant, an on-the-edge mob boss and his hit man, a knowing and not altogether unsympathetic cop, Brenda from the first novel, and Susan from the second each provide good scenes moving the story along.
What lifts this novel above the average Spenser novel and the basic tough detective genre is Spenser's personal code, the set of principles that he lives by, and the struggle he faces when the only way to bring about a satisfactory resolution to the situation is to violate one of those principles.
This is, on one hand, a fast, enjoyable read and also, on the other hand, a satisfying look at what makes the main character tick.
Very highly recommended to casual P. I. readers as well as serious ones.

5.0 von 5 Sternen HIgh Stakes Indeed 2. September 2004
Von m-lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Mortal Stakes, the third in the Spenser series, is wonderful on many levels. It is more than just about baseball and blackmail and a lone wolf PI taking on underworld thugs. It is also about relationships: between couples, between business partners, between a sports idol and his fans and also his teammates. Parker handles all of these relationships well, with the plot twisting down to a somewhat surprising end: the hero is not who you think! Excellent read - I highly recommend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mandatory reading for Spenser fans 7. Februar 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This early Spenser is essential if one is to understand the series hero. The value system that makes him different from those he pursues, and often even the cops, is spelled out here in both word and deed. It also helps us understand what draws him to and keeps him with the sometimes-exasperating Susan Silverman.
Even if you aren't a big fan of the series and are just looking for a read to get through a winter's day, this is a good choice. The mystery is a good one, with things of real value at stake (pardon the pun). Spenser takes us along every step of the way as he gets to the bottom of it, so the reader never feels cheated by the detective having information that we don't. (I must admit that perhaps the snow made me enjoy this book more than I ordinarily might have. Reading about Spenser watching baseball, eating hotdogs and peanuts and drinking beer in a great old ballpark is enough to make this girl downright misty-eyed as I dream of summers spent in my beloved Wrigley Field.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best of the Early Spenser! 13. Juli 2001
Von R. Vanterpool - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Of the three early Spenser novels I've read recently, I found I liked this one over God Save The Child and The Godwulf Manuscript. I think mainly because Spenser is realizing just how right Susan is for him and how much she understands him and what he does. The other aspect I enjoyed was that he felt so sick about luring in and killing those two men. It just makes him so human. I like that in my detectives. Sensitivity combined with the ability to kill..
A very exciting read..I recommend it highly.

Then its not a code anymore. See, being a person is kind of random and arbitrary business. You may have noticed that. And you need to believe in something to keep it from being too random and arbitrary to handle. Some people take religion, or success, or patriotism, or family, but for a lot of guys those things dont work. A guy like me. I dont have religion or family, that sort of thing. So you accept some system of order, and you stick to it. &quote;
