I just finished reading Robert Parker's The Professional. The twists and turns of the plot are fun and keep the reader interested. The dialogue between Spenser and Hawks is so clever and amusing, I wish there had been more. This mystery is different from the other Spenser novels that I've read, and the whole reading experience was quite enjoyable. I might have to read it again next year.— Polly
The wives of Boston's wealthiest men have a mutual secret: they all had an affair with the same cad who's blackmailing them, and Spenser's been hired to stop him. But when the wives start dying one by one, Spenser's new case becomes murder.
