Boston P.I. Sunny Randall joins forces with the most important man in her life-her father-to crack a thirty-year-old case. 

Hi Phil,
You miss me? I got bored, so I thought I'd reestablish our relationship. Give us both something to do in our later years. Stay tuned.
Spare Change

When a serial murderer dubbed "The Spare Change Killer" by the Boston press surfaces after three decades in hiding, the police immediately seek out the cop, now retired, who headed the original task force: Phil Randall. As a sharp-eyed investigator and a doting parent ("You're smart. You're tough. You, too, are a paradigm of law enforcement perfection, and you're my kid"), Phil calls on his daughter, Sunny, to help catch the criminal who eluded him so many years before. 

Sunny is certain that she's found her man after interviewing just a handful of suspects. Though she has no evidence against Bob Johnson, she trusts her intuition. And she knows the power she has over him-she can feel the skittishness and sexual tension that he radiates when he's around her-but persuading her father and the rest of the task force is a different story. 

When the killer strikes a second and third time, the murders take a macabre turn, as the victims each eerily resemble Sunny. While her father pressures her to drop the case, Sunny's need to create a trap to nab her killer grows. 

In a compelling game of cat-and-mouse, Sunny uses all her skills to draw out her prey, realizing too late that she's setting herself up to become the next victim. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " Sometimes, on a Sunday, when I cannot bring myself to do anything more than a few loads of laundry, I find myself on the couch watching a Top Chef marathon. Now... I have already seen the original episode or one that was close enough to it to feel familiar, but I continue to watch anyway. That is how I feel about Spare Change and most Robert Parker novels. I read it Sunday afternoon. Now it is done. In a few days I will not even remember much about Sunny Randall's detecting and emotional angst but it was a relaxing read. "

    " VERY light murder mystery....was hoping it would be somewhat better... "

    " Don't let Parker fool you -- it may seem familiar, but then you aren't reading what Parker wants you to read. The parallels Parker draws between Sunny and her dad and Spare Change and his father are masterful. "

    " One of Parker's better works, and my favorite of the Sunny Randall novels. A worthwhile and engrossing read. "
