From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Spenser, Hawk, Quirk, and Belson join forces to catch a serial killer. His targets are all 40-ish black women, bound, gagged, and shot. A single red rose left on each body earns him the title Red Rose Killer. After seeking professional advice from psychologist Dr. Susan Silverman, it is soon evident that the killer is one of her patients. When it seems his next target may very well be Susan, the significant other of Spenser, the course of action pits Spenser's and Susan's professional ethics against one another. After much give and take, they begin to understand how the other's strength complements their weaknesses. After much foot work, surveillance, and round-the-clock protection, Spenser gets his man.
