Picks and Pans Review: Double Deuce

UPDATED 07/20/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/20/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Robert B. Parker

Parker's 18th Spenser mystery finds the author at the middle of his form. With his sleek and sullen cohort, Hawk, the detective goes to the heart of the inner city to solve the brutal and seemingly random murder of a teenager and her infant daughter. Parker actually manages to provide broad social insights during those long stakeout hours, as well as specific social developments: Spenser moves in with the ever tedious Susan Silverman, and Hawk falls (sort of) in love. (Putnam, $19.95)
