Throughout all of Robert Parker's books, this quote fully explains Spenser's viewpoint of his sexual indiscretions while engaged in a committed relationship with Susan:
"It's got nothing to do with fair," I said, "or unfair. Perhaps it's a real recognition that hers would be an affair of the heart, while mine is of the flesh only, so to speak."
