Robert Parker again makes us care for his cartoon-like main character in his latest mystery By ROBERT GROAN Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Spenser is strong and he's smart. He's pretty cultured for a private eye-jock-hunk. He's a gourmet cook, sensitive toward women and monogamous to boot. Spenser also believes he's invulnerable, and that gets him into big trouble in Robert Parker's latest, "Small Vices." An ex-girlfriend, now a prosperous lawyer, hires Spenser to investigate a case in which a young black man was convicted in the rape and murder of a wealthy white coed. T MOVIES $9 to see a film? Only in New York By MICHAEL H. PRICE Furl Worth Star-Telegram There's no question that the prisoner has committed several heinous crimes for which he wasn't apprehended, but it soon becomes apparent that he did not commit this murder. As he uncovers the facts of the murder, Spenser meets with lies, hostility and threats to himself and his significant other of 20 years — a beautiful psychotherapist who is named Susan. He refuses to drop his investigation and before long he is the target of a deadly professional killer — a man in gray who is described by an FBI agent as "the most deadly man I have met in 40 years." Book Review Still fearless, Spenser refuses to back off, and here, Parker brings his hero very close to meeting his match — and his maker. A near-fatal injury and yearlong recuperation give a fallen Spenser time to divulge his noble thoughts on ethics, mankind and some lighter topics. We all know he's going to shape up and bring the culprit to his knees — literally, in one climactic scene — but that's not the solution to the mystery. Moreover, even when the legal knots are un-' raveled, the moral issues remain unresolved. One of the things that makes Parker's Spenser novels so durable is his ability to infuse a rather superficial basic premise with genuine humanity and food for thought beyond the cartoon-like characters who populate his creative world.

The real terror of the box office this season is the $9 movie ticket. So far, however, the record-high admission price has been quarantined to one theater in Manhattan and appears unlikely to spread. But last week's New York hike is reflected in a 25-cent increase at the same company's Sony Cityview showplace in southwest Fort Worth. That brings Cityview's general admission to $6.50, about par with the general run of Sony's 135 theaters in 16 states. Mark Pascucci, vice president for advertising with Sony-Loews in New York, said, "We've gone two to three years, in some cases, without raising paid admissions. "Our Lincoln Square theater — the one in New York — is the $9 house, up from $8.75. It's a flagship theater, in Manhattan, where the cost of doing business is outlandish to begin with." Pricing depends on how much the market will bear, and on the age, location and appearance of a theater. First-run admission is as high for a flop movie as for a hit. The balance of power between distributors and theaters is such that 50 percent of the gross on a newly opened inovie belongs to the studio that released it. "Of course, the longer a movie plays, the more of the ticket price that goes to the theater," Pascucci said. delicious way Grandma Max's Mother's Day Buffet Featuring Grandma's Hand-Carved Roast Beef Oh sure.
