    I thought Small Vices was quite good, Joe Mantegna was a good if not great Spenser, although Hawk seemed more teddy bear than grizzly. Susan was on the money. Even Parker's hammy cameo as a government spook was adequate.

    The biggest pleasant surprise was that the story had a beginning, a middle, and an end. Three elements usually missing from a Spenser book.

    Don't get me wrong. Parker's books are usually no more than a few extended vignettes, but they're enjoyable and a good read.

    I look forward to more.
