Enabled X-Ray: As always, the more-than-slightly-shady Hawk is on hand to help Spenser sort the good from the bad, but Spenser is left to his own devices when it comes to making sense of the emotional havoc the case creates in his relationship with Susan.

Please try again later. Self-Actualization Be Done. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Sigmund Spenser. I'm roaring onward toward the end of the series with continued amazement at how many miasmas of human angst Parker has been able to muck into, for Spenser to clarify and deodorize; and how many relationship scenes and character cards he can lay bare on any table, with Spades called true.
Opening what I might term "The Pandora in The Relationship," a scene between Spenser and Susan slipped suddenly from the most comfy of cozy, with humor set and staged on-a-roll The way Spenser worked with and through the situation was a perfect expression of This scene and Spenser's "self-talk" in understanding the dense drama underlying Susan's behavior took the reader ozone holes beyond the trite advice to "roll with the punches.
In this one and in a few previous recent offerings readers were also given hints of the beginning of The-Waitress-Hurry-Rush-Syndrome, which appeared to have begun in the nineties.
Acting as her shrink, Spenser's jangled the jargon from the popular surge of psycho-self-help books which carried "come-communicate" concepts from the 70's and 80's into the 90's. Spenser's part of every dialogue with every character seemed to have suddenly altered in MISCHIEF in a manner which felt somewhat but not totally, tongue-in-cheek. I enjoyed the fact that the dialogues often took place over meals or in interesting restaurants, so that when Spenser worked the no response deal, he replaced the saved mouth motion with warm, moist bites of fresh, spongy bread, and savored the yeasty flavor.
Usually his comment in that venue went something like, "I took a bite of It was good. Even so, one of the reasons for success of his perfection was his ability to see and note his and Susan's flaws here. And, Susan's self-actualization scene in chapter 48 was truly incredible in Parker's perfection of process of her coming to that catharsis, with Spenser providing support in an awesomely effective way of stand-aside-but-be-ready.
As noted above, it appeared to me that the humor had changed slightly in this one, with appetizer overtures in recent previous offerings as well. Some of the conversational fun-poking definitely seemed to have taken on a warmly entertaining edge of the X-Files, Fox Mulder type. The combo of these subtle changes continued to herald the "Signs of the Times," reinforcing my sense of one of the major values in this series being its feathered function as a cultural-evolution-landmark for the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's.
Sometimes series authors have espoused a wish that they could get out of the limitations of a genre and write something "significant. Possibly the greatest gift in this accomplishment is that readers can choose to see this significance and be awed by it. Or, they can merely let go of cares and worries, and be entertained by pure escape fiction.
I wonder if RBP was born on the precise point of an Annular Solar Eclipse, to have continually generated and successfully manifested so much primal, pivotal creativity. Or maybe Parker was born during a Blue Moon peaking full in the company of Jupiter and Vesta the asteroid. All I know about that is that he was born in or 48?
Another man, born in , wasn't a Baby Boomer, nor an author, yet he reminds me of Parker, in the sense of the above described type of continued creative generation and manifestation.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Oh, boy. There are unexpected riches here, built on a seemingly straight-forward tale of false accusations. Parker must have lived with a notebook, collecting his character studies.
This is a Spenser masterpiece.
While enjoyable most of the time, this book reminded me of a "This Is Your Life" episode. Without any real reason, Spenser runs into any number of people from previous books e. It's the equivalent of a class reunion, completed with bored significant-other Susan. I enjoyed the book because Spenser spends a lot of time with Hawk. The plot isn't very flash e.
Susan whinges a bit less than usual. Unlike books where she's carrying on like a pork chop, I didn't have to turn each page hoping for a hostage drama involving Susan which goes horribly wrong albeit only from Spenser's point of view.
If you're going to start reading Spenser books, there are better ones. However, if you like Hawk's comments, I think this one is definitely worthwhile reading. Hardcover Verified Purchase. Ok, there isn't as much action in "Sudden Mischief" as there is in some of the other Spenser novels. No matter. It has always been my contention that Robert B. Parker writes love stories that are disguised within the mystery genre. Think about it. What has always been paramount in his novels has been the relationships, especially those of Spenser to Hawk and Susan.
And when the cases are most compelling, it means Spenser has taken a personal interest in his client: Paul Giacomin, say, or Rachel Wallace. In "Sudden Mischief," Spenser's client is Susan, as she asks him to help our her troubled ex-husband.
There's no getting away from the fact that this is Susan at her neurotic best, but it also is Spenser at his compassionate best. The story also gives new colors no pun intended to his friendship with Hawk, and at the very least continues to paint Boston and environs in delightful new shades.
If you can get through the early chapters without getting hunry for fried oysters, you're a better person than I. Audio CD Verified Purchase. This is a review of the audio CD, not the novel.
I have ten other Spenser audio CDs that I have enjoyed immensely. One of the things I like about Parker's Spenser is the humor in the books. When I listed to the novels on the CDs I pick up even more humor than is available in the books.
The audio Cds are slower-paced than reading the books so things I miss as I'm racing along in the novels get picked up in the Cds. I'm sorry I did. There are several things wrong with Windom as the reader. The two most important are: William Windom's voice carries a world-weary tone that is completely opposite to Spenser's Parker who is unfailingly upbeat with a "glass-is-always-half-full approach to life and who always has a hint of humor in his conversation. The second problem is that Windom doesn't even attempt to change his voice for the various characters so, often, since Parker doesn't always use "he said" or "she says" for every line, you can't tell who is supposed to be talking.
Windom also has the annoying habit of using an upward inflection at the end of sentences that don't call for it and, conversely, of dropping off the end of some sentences with so low a tone that he is inaudible. Altogether, a very unsatisfactory production.
