Renaissance man Spenser - he of the acerbic social commentary, the gourmet cookery, and the steely abs - turns his considerable talents to the unraveling of a thirty-year-old murder mystery. During a 1974 holdup in a Boston bank by a revolutionary group calling itself the Dread Scott Brigade, Emily Gordon, a visitor cashing traveler's checks, is shot and killed. Despite security-camera photos and a letter from the group claiming responsibility, nobody saw who shot her, and the perpetrators have remained at large for three decades. Enter Paul Giacomin, the closest thing to Spenser's son. When Paul's friend Daryl Gordon, Emily's daughter, decides she needs closure regarding her mother's death, she turns to Spenser, who must reach past the lack of clues and missing FBI report to seek the truth.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christopher Beck | 2/14/2014

    " Not my first Robert B. Parker book and while I enjoyed it, it wasn't my favorite of his. Like his other works this is an easy read, filled with wit, humour, and gun fights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Steven | 2/12/2014

    " Private detective Spenser solves a 28 year old murder, but the woman who hired him finds the revelations too disturbing and no longer wants to know. A fun read from an enduring hard boiled detective character--a very good series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ronald | 2/11/2014

    " Reading Parker's detective stories are like eating a favorite dessert--not at all nutritious, a guilty pleasure, and you know exactly what you're going to get. "

    " I love the banter and sense of humor of all the Spenser series. "
