Sudden Mischief (Spenser, #25) by Robert B. Parker
Sudden Mischief is one of Spenser’s most challenging cases, but not for the reasons you’d suspect. Oh, as usual, the motivations are murky, the human relations entangled, and those murderous thugs—the ones who always want him off the case—are as insistent and menacing as before. But the challenge of Sudden Mischief is of a different order: it forces Susan Silverman—Spenser’s longtime love—to look squarely at her own past, and requires Spenser to support her, protect her, and—yes—to stand back just a little bit too.
Bruce Sterling, Susan’s ex-husband and high profile charity fund raiser, has been charged with sexual harassment, and he is afraid the charge may ruin his career and perhaps bankrupt him too. He cries on Susan’s shoulder, Susan asks Spenser to investigate, and—against his better judgment—Spenser says yes. Soon our hero is surrounded by uncertainties: a Susan who isn’t the same sweet Susan, a charity fund raising event that doesn’t smell like a normal fund raising event, and a sexual harassment suit that isn’t typical either.
I liked this book, and I’m particularly glad I re-read it, for it disabused me of a false notion I’ve carried around for years: that I dislike Susan Silverman and that the books would be better if she were banished from the series for good. Yet here she was at the center of attention, whinier and more demanding than usual, and I didn’t mind her a bit. In fact, I liked her all the more. (Plus, she hits a thug over the head with a rock. I must admit that helped a little.)
How could that be?, I asked myself, and the answer I received made the whole Spenser/Susan thing much clearer to me. If liked them together in Sudden Mischief, it was because their relationship was dynamic for a change: they were real people, grappling with real relationship questions, facing their inner demons and surviving. What I hate is Spenser/Susan in the typical adventure, a static caricature of the ideal non-marital couple, with their perfect restaurants, their perfect dog, their perfect middle-aged sex, their perfect understanding, and their steadfast love. In these scenes Parker seemed to be trying too hard to transmute his own imperfect marriage into a flawless fictional dream.
But in Sudden Mischief Susan and Spenser seemed like real people, and I liked those real people a lot . (Plus did I mention I really liked that scene, the one where Susan hits a thug over the head with a rock?)
