Description

Boston P.I. Sunny Randall goes on the road to protect a bestselling author-and uncovers a world of dark secrets- in the new novel by the Grand Master. Sunny Randall, the beautiful blond P.I. with a yen for dogs, painting, and her ex-husband, Richie, has won over even the most hard-core of Robert B. Parker's many fans. "The real deal", raved Publishers Weekly. "Parker's most tightly plotted mystery in years", proclaimed Entertainment Weekly of Perish twice. In Shrink Rap, Sunny tries to take down a stalker, and faces personal demons in the process. Melanie Joan Hall is a bestselling author in a bind, She is hysterically afraid of her ex-husband, a psychootherapist, so Sunny signs on as her bodyguard/escort on her book tour. When an incident at a bookstore leaves the ex bloodied and the author unconscious, Sunny decides to crack the case from the inside and enter therapy herself... while putting her life on the line. Gripping, nuanced, and filled with Parker's signature dialogue and psychological insight, Shrink Rap is a sure fire winner.

        Starred review from August 19, 2002
        As if responding to his new status as an MWA Grand Master, Parker turns in his strongest mystery in years with Boston PI Sunny Randall's third outing (after Family Honor
        and Perish Twice), a particular relief after this spring's flaccid Spenser offering, Widow's Walk. The setup lacks originality—Sunny is hired to bodyguard a bestselling author, Melanie Joan Hall, who pens "high-end bodice rippers," just as years ago in Stardust, Spenser was hired to bodyguard a famous TV newscaster—but by focusing on an author's plight during her book tour, Parker writes about experiences close to his own, delivering sharp portraits of publishing types and fans. Melanie Joan's former husband, John Melvin, a psychopathic psychiatrist, is stalking her. To learn about and discredit him, Sunny consults another psychiatrist, then enters incognito into therapy with Melvin, which adds tremendous resonance to the narrative as, inadvertently, she must confront her own neuroses during sessions, complexes involving her relationships with her parents and estranged husband. Soon Sunny sniffs out that Melvin has been raping and, occasionally, killing members of his all-female clientele by injecting them with a date rape drug. To nab Melvin, she submits to his using the drug on her, in an intense finale. With layers of psychological revelation, plenty of action, the welcome return of Sunny's supporting crew (most notably Spike, a gay counterpart to Spenser's Hawk) and, as usual, prose as tight as a drumhead, this is grade-A Parker. National author tour.

      • content: Parker's spunky Boston private eye, Sunny Randall, is hired by a popular romance novelist whose former husband, a prominent psychiatrist, is stalking her. Sunny soon learns that the psychiatrist's depravity does not end with his creepy appearances at his former wife's book signings. She also concludes that she might benefit from a psychiatrist herself as she copes with a remote, former cop father; a mother who escapes into a bottle; and an ex-husband who remains the love of her life. Deborah Raffin's strength isn't in creating a cast of diverse characters, but she does render a Sunny who is smart and immensely appealing. It's a kick to spend time with both of them. M.O.
