The house looked right. And the neighborhood was perfect. And everything else was wrong. So Spenser took the parents' money and went after a runaway girl. Unfortunately, April Kyle had already traveled two lifetimes from her suburban home. Now she was caught up in a web of pinps, criminals, and exploiters—the kinf of people who won't listen to anything but money, or a gun. . . .

A grim story of a man hired to find a teenager who may be beyond help. I read a lot of detective books. This story’s conclusion is the wildest of them all. Certainly not for the prudish.

The subject is timeless, the merciless use of very young girls and boys as objects-in this case sexual but world wide abuse of children remains rampant. Spenser works to save one, perhaps that is the best we can do, Parker is starting to use his writings to highlight the ills of society, a valuable use of his wit and writing skills.
