Loved this as I do all Sunny Randall mysteries. I find that she's a very confused woman in a tough job, and somehow manages to battle through.

Andrea Thompson, the pretty actress who was on NYPD BLUE for a season or two, does a worthwhile read.
I just finished it--the abridged audio version--and wanted to send her a compliment.
So this obscure review place will immortally do it.
Her urban voice is pure sexiness, and complements Mr. Parker's intriguing composition.
**The plot is interesting private "pussy" fodder, rather than private "dick" shtick, and Andrea makes this P.I. Sonja Randall voice acting opportunity maximally entertaining.
The novel contains an interesting take on "what is manliness?" and "what is womanliness?"
I would say the uncensored work is appropriate reading for both teenagers and adults
THANKS for the fun fantasy.
**Don't dis me for originating the above un-witticism: I recently heard it in an audio version of a detective novel entitled "Family Honor."

Sunny and Richie were married for nine years. They had had a house in Marblehead. Richie refused the house. Sunny wrapped her paintings in order to move her things. Her mother said she was disappointed. Her father offered to help with a divorce or with whatever she needed. Families offer protection to their members. Protection is the theme of Parker's story.
Sunny was a cop, her father was a cop. Richie resembled her father although he came from a crime family. Sunny moved to investigation and then to private investigation. She is hired to find a teenage runaway. The mother seems too perfect. Sunny is pursuing an MFA nights. She still paints and lives in a loft. The missing girl, Millicent, attended a girls school. The school provided a classical education. Millicent had been missing for ten days. At the school she had no friends, no interests, no achievements.
Sunny discovered that Millicent had been to a youth shelter. The person running the shelter said that the kids seemed to have equal measures of defiance and guilt. Sunny needs her ex-husband's help to get her into areas of activity to find Millicent, (Milly). Sunny finds the girl through the connections that Richie Burke makes available to her. Since Milly isn't talking convincingly, Sunny has the the girl move in with her.
It develops that others are looking for the girl. They have to go to the mattresses and move to a friend's apartment in the South End. An interesting subtext in the story is that families teach its members how to function, and that no one seems to have taken any time to teach Milly how to function.
Parker writes that in Boston organized crime is an oxymoron. There are loose groups. When Sunny returns to her loft, she finds that it had been tossed.

I have read all of Robert B. Parker's novels except the Sunny Randall novels. I wasn't sure that I would enjoy Parker's writing about a female P.I., so I was pleasantly surprised when I finished "Family Honor". Sunny Randall is 35, divorced from her ex-husband whom she still loves, and paints. She also owns a bull terrier named Rosie. Sunny is hired by Brock and Betty Patton to find their daughter, Millicent, who has run away from home. Sunny locates Millicent, but she refuses to return home. It seems that there are some other people who are looking for Millicent as well. Sunny hides Millicent in a friend's home while she investigates. I like the character of Sunny Randall and plan to read the next two novels while awaiting more Spenser and Jesse Stone novels from Robert B. Parker.

But, to borrow from the Beatles, "you know that can't be bad." Sure, Sunny is a wiseacre like Spenser and, like Spenser, she lives in Boston and loves both Charlie Parker and the bar at the Ritz. And Julie the shrink bears a passing resemblance to Susan the shrink. Rosie eats off chopsticks, just like Pearl. Sunny's ex-husband provides extra muscle, underworld connections, and makes people uncomfortable by remaining menacingly still, just like Hawk. And Millicent is a mix between April Kyle and Paul Giacommin. So I guess if you wanted to brand this work as derivative, I wouldn't be able to convincingly defend it. BUT I adore the Spenser books and have feared that as Parker's original PI grows older (he's in his 60s now) and retires, there would be no new Parker character to take his place. Now there's Sunny. I enjoyed this tale of sex, mystery, love and redemption. The plot was interesting, the characters comfortable and compelling, and the performance by Andrea Thompson was exceptional. (OK, she said "Betty Hutton" instead of "Betty Patton" once, but I thought that was funny.) I've heard that Sunny was created for Helen Hunt, but Parker has hit the jackpot with Thompson. If there's ever a Sunny film, she certainly deserves a crack at the title role.

Yes, there's similarity to Parker's "Early Autumn" in that the detective sort of adopts a teenager who's aimlessly floating around, and yes, bits of the dialogue are identical to Spenser dialogue, but that's not really sufficient to take away from the enjoyment of this book.
Sunny isn't really a female Spenser. She's less comfortable dealing with the gangster connections than Spenser is. While she's a good shot, she doesn't seem to be a true physical match for the bad guys.
In this first outing, she's hired to find a missing 15 year old daughter, but on finding her also discovers that she'll be in considerable danger if she's returned to her family. The story goes on from there. We meet Tony Marcus who we know from Spenser books. And a flip remark is made at one point which indicates that Sunny knows of Spenser and his reputation.
Parker likes to throw in little teasers. When we realize that the girl and her mother will each likely be visiting psychologists, we can't help wondering if one of them won't end up with that lady counsellor we know so well. After all, this is set in Boston.
There's bound to be a bit of a tie-in with other Parker series and therefore, I recommend reading all Parker stories in sequence.
