Summary

When Robin Nevins, the son of Hawk's boyhood mentor, is denied at an exclusive university, Hawk asks Spenser to investigate. It seems the denial is tied to the suicide of a young gay activist, and as Spenser digs deeper he is nearly drowned in a multicultural swamp of politics: black, gay, academic, and feminist.

At the same time, Spenser's inamorata, Susan, asks him to come to the aid of an old college friend, K.C. Roth, the victim of a stalker. Spenser solves the problem a bit too effectively when K.C. turns the tables and begins to stalk him.

With Hush Money, Robert B. Parker adds a morally complex tale to this legendary series.

Critic reviews

"Reynolds's portrayal of detective Spenser is on target - intelligent, tough, and sensual." ( AudioFile Magazine)

from very good to very mediocre

reynolds made the story happen. he's so good with a little smart alec that just fits both Spenser and Hawk. the first 2/3 of the plot was nice, but it really faded at the end. the final scene (sex) was obligatory at best, and just numbing at worst. yuck. kind of spoiled the tale, and I normally am a Patterson fan.
