Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sunny Randall, the beautiful blond P.I. with a yen for dogs, painting, and her ex-husband, Richie, has won over even the most hardcore of Robert B. Parker's many fans. "The real deal, " raved Publishers Weekly.... In Shrink Rap, Sunny tries to take down a stalker, and faces personal demons in the process.

Melanie Joan Hall is a best-selling author in a bind. Her publisher needs her to tour on behalf of her newest blockbuster, and Melanie Joan needs a bodyguard-cum-escort to protect her from an overbearing ex-husband whose presence unnerves her to the point of hysteria. Sunny's cool demeanor, cop background, and P.I. smarts are an instant balm for the older woman. She begins to sense that Melanie Joan's ex — a psychotherapist — is not your basic stalker, and when an incident at a book signing leaves the ex bloodied and the author unconscious, it's clear the stakes are high. Deciding that the only way to crack the case is from the inside, Sunny enters therapy herself, only to discover some disturbing truths about herself ? while putting her life on the line.

Gripping, nuanced, and filled with Parker's signature dialogue and psychological insight, Shrink Rap is a winner.

Review:

"With layers of psychological revelation, plenty of action, ? prose as tight as a drumhead, this is grade-A Parker." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Fans will enjoy the crisp dialog, Sunny's investigations of her mind, and the matching of wits with a truly frightening villain." Ronnie H. Terpening, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson, Library Journal

Review:

"An intriguing look at the psychology of manipulation combined with a knockout plot that builds to a truly creepy, hair-raising climax."Connie Fletcher, Booklist

Review:

"The smart plot [is] ideal for Parker's patented brand of knowing humor." The New York Times

Review:

"Pages of witty dialogue fly by to a nail-biting climax, and Sunny,...gains more depth as a character." Nancy Pate, Orlando Sentinel

Synopsis:

Sunny Randall is hired to protect a bestselling novelist from her ex-husband. He's not only a stalker...he's a shrink. And when Sunny becomes his patient, she discovers as much about herself as she does about the criminal mind...
