It was discovered forty years ago behind an ornamental façade at Godwulf Abbey, where it is thought to have been secreted during the pillage of the monasteries that followed Henry the Eighth’s break with Rome. Oh, I said, that illuminated manuscript. Right, Tower said briskly. I can fill you in with description and pictures later. Right now we want to sketch out the general picture.

The first detective novel featuring Boston PI Spenser, in Robert B. Parker's acclaimed and bestselling Spenser SeriesThe first in the series . Don't let the title fool you. This has very little to do with the Godwulf manuscript, or any other ancient tomes

The first detective novel featuring Boston PI Spenser, in Robert B. Parker's acclaimed and bestselling Spenser SeriesThe first in the series featuring private detective Spenser sees Spenser hired to return a stolen fourteenth-century manuscript to its rightful owners, an investigation that soon leads him into a complex web of murder, radical politics, adultery, drugs and organised crime. When it comes to detective novels, 90 per cent of us admit he's an influence, and the rest of us lie about it' HARLAN COBEN. This has very little to do with the Godwulf manuscript, or any other ancient tomes. It is all about life in the 1970s in a college town.

Spenser earned his degree in the school of hard knocks, so he is ready when a Boston university hires him to recover a rare, stolen manuscript. He is hardly surpised that his only clue is a radical student with four bullets in his chest. The cops are ready to throw the book at the pretty blond coed whose prints are all over the murder weapon but Spenser knows there are no easy answers. He tackles some very heavy homework and knows that if he doesn't finish his assignment soon, he could end up marked "D" -- for dead.
The first book in Robert B Parker's classic "Spenser" series. Spenser is without a doubt the king of hard-boiled private detectives in the era of the 70s and the 80s. Parker's writing is absolutely brilliant. Spenser is a smart ass, a wise guy, a genuine tough guy, and he is just hilariously funny as he tells everyone where they can stick it. The only rules he follows are his own morals and values and the hell with everyone else. Great dialogue, a good deal of ass kicking, and often the real world, unhappy endings that nobody expects from a book. Parker's "Spenser" series is a classic collection of some of the best detective stories about one of the greatest private detective characters ever created since Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe. Sometimes it's a true whodunit mystery. More often the mystery is how Spenser is going to solve the problem, and who's going to be left bleeding by the roadside when he's done.

In his first Spenser novel "The Godwulf Manuscript", Robert B. Parker sets the playing field for the modern detective; creating a formula that hundreds of imitators will attempt to recreate over the next four decades. This story of a purloined document is background scenery for the birth of one of the best known investigators since Holmes. Witnessing Parker craft Spenser piece by piece; his quips, quotes and culinary skills, is satisfying, especially for long time fans rereading the series. Readers new to the series should enjoy the snappy pace and direct writing style, even without nostalgic benefits.

Regardless of being brand new to Spenser or a returning veteran, all visits to the penultimate Boston gumshoe should begin with this novel. Meeting Spenser chronologically will serve to heighten enjoyment from not only the written series, but also provide deeper understanding of the incredible television series "Spenser, For Hire".

Before his passing, Robert B. Parker was a prolific writer, gracing us with 40 Spenser novels amongst his other works. Every few years, I love to revisit the series, and I always re-read all in order. Not many multi-book series inspire such dedication. Parker's Spenser is one such series that does.

I have been a big fan of Mr. Parker's other series works, like Jesse Stone and his westerns, but never made an effort to like the Spencer novels. I think I was turned off by the TV show, maybe didn't like the characters? Now that Mr. Parker is gone, and someone (family, publishers?) is trying to pass off some writers who aren't good enough to create their own books to continue his, I am turning to the Spencer series, and able to read them as if they were new - which to me they are. There are enough of them, fortunately, to entertain me for years to come, and they are excellent mysteries.

I have decided to 're visit the Spenser series in order. This is a book that I read 30 years ago -fresh out of college. At that time I related to the college kids. This time I related to the adults in the story. It's amazing what a difference it makes! It's like reading an entirely different book. Also Parker's descriptive passages recreate the 70s from dress to architecture.

I'm a big fan of Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels. Nobody does detective - private eye novels better than Parker. I liked the television show "Spenser For Hire", loosely based on the books, but the books are much better. Most of the main characters are a little different than the TV show, except for Hawk. Avery Brooks nailed it. His Hawk is exactly like Hawk in the novels. I've bought the first 15 from The Godwulf Manuscript through Crimson Joy and have been reading them it order. I'm currently on the 13th, Taming A Sea-Horse, Once you start they are hard to put down. What you might call, "A page turner". Very entertaining.

First book in the Spenser series, I believe -- and it established all the fundamentals that characterized Spenser stories going forward: the way it paints pictures of Boston, the cops, the victims and of course Spenser himself: smart, tough, literate, thoughtful, witty. He hasn't yet met Susan Silverman, and Hawk has not yet appeared, so it's just Spenser, and sorta all the more powerful because he's pretty much fighting alone. (He does meet Brenda Loring in this book, so not all is lost... :-)

If you've gotten hooked on Spenser, be sure to read this first story; if you haven't read any Spenser books but love finding a new series to get hooked on, start with this one and if you like it you'll be glad to know there are many more that follow.
