Spenser's never had a client like Jill Joyce, the star of TV's Fifty Minutes. STARDUST is a classic character study, and an excellent example of fine writing, especially given Parker's vivid, delightfully sardonic descriptions of various settings, descriptions based on weather conditions and wealth divergence, contrasting Boston and surrounding areas with the San Diego and LA extended environments.

Candace Sloan, it said. The headstones stretched out around me in all directions, measuring the green sweep of the hillside. Behind me the rental car was parked on the drive. case was in it with the big red letters spelling ADIDAS on the side. In an hour and a half I’d be flying to Boston. In six or seven hours I’d be with Susan. There were flowers at many of the grave sites. And there were a few other people looking at gravestones the way I was.

In STARDUST, Spenser is hired to protect Hollywood glamour girl Jill Joyce from continued harassment and would be stalkers. It turns out that said Hollywood glamour girl is nothing but a rich, spoilt, pain in the backside, and several times, our hero has to stop himself from walking away from the case. Especially early on. It takes an epiphany for Spenser to keep his word, however, and when he sees the wood for the trees, it is nice and easy for the reader to understand why he can’t walk away, as well. And it is a good thing for Joyce that he keeps his word, too, because things start to get nasty. In a hurry, even.

STARDUST is unique for several reasons. Hawk and Susan both feature prominently, and yet in some respects, especially for Hawk, his role in the story is relatively minor. And Susan was there, right from the opening scene, as the story starts out on a TV Show Set that Lily features in, and Susan is one of the technical directors for the company producing the show. So we don’t get to experience Spenser telling his lover the facts of the case, as she already knows them. And of course, this means we don't get to listen to her interpretation of said facts, or her interpretation of Spenser’s interpretation of said facts. But you can’t have your cake and eat it, too. Old regulars and friends (and those not) of Spenser who work for the Boston Police Department show up, too, but only when the need arises (I am being subtle, here folks!). The standard interaction comes to the fore amongst the whole gang, and as the world knows by now, it all works on so many levels.

There is a death, and bound to be more, before the baddies are caught. And plenty of fights, and bravado, and humour, and hints of sex between our two star crossed lovers. Sound familiar to anyone? You betcha! And that is why I love STARDUST. It starts off nice and easy, a quiet, slow stroll in the (metaphorical) park, and turns into a mad chase for the killers later on.

Four stars for the quality of the story telling, the controlled pace and the excellent characterisation. And a bonus star for the originality of the plot.

And for the nice new kindle cover.

Spenser meets Hollywood here as a TV show has chosen Boston for the location of its program, Fifty Minutes and they have all of TV's most famous actress, Jill Joyce. Joyce feels she is being stalked and fears for her life, so the show hires Spenser to protect her. It isn't easy as she is not forthcoming in giving information about her stalker, but is real forthcoming about wanting to bed Spenser. A frustrated Spenser nearly gives up the case several times as he gets no co-operation from the star, but the super sleuth calls on Hawk to watch her and he takes off to track down the stalker when Joyce's body double is murdered. The book is slow to develop, but is real good once the stage is set for the story.

I just finished a novel by acclaimed author Robert B. Parker, 'Stardust.' Written in 1990, I'd read it before -- in fact I've read all of his 40 Spencer novels, the 6 Jesse Stone novels and 6 Sunny Randall novels. But I read it again and loved it every bit as much as the first time.

His estate permittes Ace Atkins to continue the legacy by writing Spencer novels, which are very much like Mr. Parker's style. I was greatly saddened by his death in January 2010.

Teamwork, toughness, terseness. Here was a good interchange, as Spenser warns about an incoming threat: “Remember that big geek named Randall, thinks he’s tougher than Oliver North?” “Wow,” Hawk said. “Randall does karate.” “Good,” Hawk said. “It’s fun to watch.”

Depressing mystery.
Warning: triggers for child abuse.

Interesting, all to realistic storyline. Believable characters with distinct personalities.

Informative, thought-provoking and humorous dialogue.

I will re-read this story, and am glad it is available in Kindle format.

I found this to be one of my favorite Spencer novels. Enough Hawk to be interesting but really getting into the terrible predicaments people get themselves into by bad choices. Loved the give and take of Spencer and Hawk.

Very intense story about a female television star who has terrible emotional problems and is difficult to deal with. It all makes interesting reading.
