    If this had been my first exposure to Robert B Parker s work I would not have read another of his offerings The plot is amateurish, naive simplistic, the characters elicit no empathy nor are they even likeable They react in ways that are improbable from a socio psychological point of view If I had a wife who acted the way this woman did, I d gift wrap her and sent her to the bad guys...

    FabulousParker was a particular kind of genius His Spencer books are priceless Aaron Newman, the lead character in Wilderness, is me The danger and adventure and romance are so well written.I am sorry that I have noParker books to read I hope his widow, Joan, whom I have never met, is doing well

    As with all Mr Parkers s books, Wilderness is a good story well told, with a trace of humour And empathy His character portrayals are believable people we d like to meet.In Wilderness, the author poses the thought provoking question what we would do in the protagonists shoes
