"strong crime thriller"
When a person sees Sunny Randall for the first time, the
individual thinks "cute and perky". However, Sunny is a
private detective with a spine of steel and she's not
afraid to use the gun she's permitted to carry.
Psychiatrist Dr. John Melvin is stalking romance author Melanie
Joan Hall, so while she is going on a book tour she hires
Sunny to be her bodyguard.
While on tour, the two women see Dr. Melvin many times but
are helpless to do anything about it. Melanie Jones starts
confiding in Sunny and the private detective realizes the
stalker is committing actual crimes against his patients.
Determined to put him away Sunny poses as his patient and
sets herself up as bait.
Robert B. Parker, the author of the famous Spenser series,
creates a totally new series using a different voice when
he writes about Sunny Randall. In SHRINK RAP, although the
reader knows what is going to happen, the fun is in
watching a twisted and evil person get his comeuppance.
This crime thriller is heading for the bestseller lists.
