Format: Hardcover
Fans of the Sunny Randall series will find Spare Change very satisfying in terms of Sunny finding her way through ambivalence about being with Richie. There's no resolution there . . . but definite progress does occur. You could easily rename this book, Sunny's Quest for Meaning, since the book is also so much about her feelings concerning her father, mother, sister, and her friend, Julie. Much like Spenser, she also takes detecting actions that help her define what's important to her as a professional.

If you haven't read any of the Sunny Randall books before, you may feel like you've been dropped into an alien universe of psychological perspectives at times. Rather than be puzzled and annoyed by this book, I suggest you go back to the beginning and start with Family Honor.

Mystery fans who like character development will find that aspect of Spare Change nicely balances a pretty standard, and not very productive, police investigation into a serial killer. The two strands of the story nicely intertwine in a number of ways that enhance the reading experience. The book has another appealing feature, Susan Silverman and long-time police characters from the Spenser series have small roles. More than some books in the series, you feel like Sunny lives in the same Boston that Spenser does.

As the book opens, Sunny's romantic life is a mess. Richie has gotten remarried and her relationship with Jesse Stone is over because he can't get over his ex-wife and Sunny can't get over Richie. But things look up when her beloved father, Phil Randall, asks her to help him catch a serial killer who leaves three coins after execution-style killings in public places.

A long forgotten serial killer (madman) has dared to show his face in Boston again after twenty years of inactivity, and Sunny Randall Snr, former Senior Police Homicide Detective, invites the darling of his life (and that of the readers’ hearts) to help him, in his bid to catch and stop the maniac from causing further mayhem in the town he loves.

That is the premise of this, the sixth and final volume of one of the most remarkable and note-worthy crime series’ ever written.

Reading SPARE CHANGE is certainly an interesting experience. At times it makes you feel as if you are riding on one of the world’s most powerful and technologically advanced bullet trains. No noise, all comfort, beautiful views; in essence, an express ride into Terror Town, with a lunatic on the run, waiting on the platform, to meet you when the train reaches it destination.

What the story lacks, however, is the personableness, or the intimacy (if you will) of the other books in the series. The first five books were essentially all about Sunny. We, (as readers, and more importantly, as fans) really got to know her. And lets be honest - we fell in love with her. We got to know her problems, her loves, her likes, her hates and her insecurities. We learnt what made her tick just as she herself learnt what made her tick, courtesy of the psychoanalytical genius that is Dr Susan Silverman.

Book six, on the other hand, isn’t JUST about Sunny Randall. It is, however, about Sunny And Her Dad Catching The Bad Guy. Don’t get me wrong - there is nothing wrong with that. The book is gripping, it is scary, it is creepy, and we even get to sit in on more talk fests with the Doc.

Everything I've read of Robert B Parker has been terrific! Obviously his "Spenser" novels are his best but the "Sunny Randall" series is well worth reading also.
Robert B. Parker is my favourite author with Michael Connelly and David Baldacci just behind.

Great readable book, as always with Robert Parker. Good plot and witty dialogue lift it above the average thriller.
