5.0 out of 5 stars Parker scores with his first female sleuth as a star, 4 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Family Honor (Hardcover)
Everyone seems to possess a different handle of what makes Sunny Randle tick. To herself, Sunny simply ends up being a big question mark. She lives alone although she loves her ex-spouse Ritchie deeply. However, her family represents law enforcement while his kin symbolize organized crime. For years, her father has tried to put her ex father-in-law behind bars. She quit the police force, becoming a private investigator. Sunny also works as an artist while attending school part-time.
Brock and Billy Patton hire Sunny to locate and bring home their runaway teenage daughter, Millicent. Though she accepts the case, Sunny senses something is not right within the Patton household. Sunny finds Millicent hooking in Boston, but the adolescent refuses to return to the home of her parents. Unable to desert Millicent to the streets nor force her to go to her parents' home, the kind hearted detective takes her back to her own house. However, two thugs arrive, trying to abduct Millicent. As Sunny protects her new charge, she investigates why there is such a sudden interest in just what seems to be another runaway.
FAMILY HONOR turns out to be Robert B. Parker's first tale starring a female protagonist. Anyone who reads it will think the author has been dabbling with female sleuths for decades. Sunny is a well-rounded individual with a marshmallow heart, an Einstein brain, and a need to do the right thing without hurting anyone(but does not play end for the Cardinals). In spite her being a soft touch, Sunny is tough, which makes her similar in nature to Spencer. Fans of Mr. Parker will relish the tale of a realistic, original, and strong woman starring in a will written who-done-it.
