Spencer

Hundred-Dollar Baby

I had a long trip to make so I checked out the audio book Hundred-Dollar Baby by Robert B. Parker. In this title, Spencer is reunited with April Kyle. April had been a teenage prostitute that Spencer had rescued in the past. Now she’s grown up and she says she needs his help. However, as he tries to help her, more and more lies pile up, and then Ollie, a minor gangster, is killed. Spencer, and his sidekick Hawk, go between New York and Boston, trying to uncover the truth in this case. Spencer begins to wonder if he really saved April, and can he save her again this time?

Sad News - RIP Robert B. Parker

Robert B. ParkerAfter I finished writing about The Professional and the Spencer series, I heard news of Robert B. Parker's death. He passed away at the age of 77 after suffering a heart attack while sitting at his desk. He is survived by his wife of 50 years and 2 sons. So I guess I won't be reading any more Spencer novels. Might be nice to go back and re-read some of my favorites.
