When a Hollywood-based TV series schedules filming in Boston, Spenser smells trouble. When he signs up to protect the show’s star, Jill Joyce, he knows it’s on its way.

First, there’s Jill herself. She's spoiled, arrogant, drugged out—made worse by fear. Someone is out to get her—does she imagine it, or is it real?

Spenser monitors her neurosis, but finds evidence of harassment. It escalates to murder. Now begins the dangerous part—while the act may have ended, the murderer lingers on.

    " The voice just sounds different to me. It was O.K. but..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 5/10/2011

    " I enjoyed this YA novel about the young Spencer and how he came to be. I read the first book in the Spencer series some months ago and was wondering if I could actually read more books that were so old, but this one made me eager to give it a shot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 3/25/2011

    " While parts of the book repeat information that true Spenser fans already know, the books is a great addition to the Spenser lore. It's a little like hearing a familiar story that is repeated at family gatherings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 3/6/2011

    " this book was not quite up to par with the rest of Parker's books. I still enjoyed it, but it did ramble just a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Du | 2/20/2011

    " Good, but definitely late Spenser. It wouldn't have been the end of the world to miss this one. On the upside it took just over 2 hours to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 1/23/2011

    " Spenser’s formative years spent with his father and two uncles out West
    i read it aqnd didn't write notes.
    short and charming little spenser.
    go for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 1/20/2011

    " As a friend opined, "This is the 'secret origin' of Spenser you've kept us waiting for?" Oh please... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/16/2011

    " Would that every boy have parents like Spenser has in this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yankey | 1/13/2011

    " So long Mr. Robert B. Parker. It was great fun joining younger versions of our beloved Spenser as he developed those unique characteristics. we will sadly miss reading this series develop. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 6/22/2010

    " Spenser relates some of the incidents in his life that formed his code of ethics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J.R. | 6/21/2010

    " I enjoyed this little book. Definitely Spenser light. It is also the first book I've read from Parker since his death. I heard he had passed away on his keyboard. Not sure where I read that, but that is definitely how I want to go. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 5/14/2010

    " A brief look at Spenser's early years, as told to Susan, his current love interest. In the book, Spenser saves a girl (but not a girl friend) from an abusive father, a Hispanic boy from bigoted classmates, and learns life lessons from his father and uncles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 4/12/2010

    " As the title says, this YA novel deals with the young Spenser. Find out what made him. Quick read, but enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daphne | 4/6/2010

    " Good story. I've read a Spenser book before and thought it was just OK, but this one tells about him as a boy and was quite good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rena | 3/24/2010

    " In comparison to Parker's "The Boxer and the Spy",this young adult novel is hands down a better read. Tying in Spenser's current relationship with Susan and his past as a young boy, you can see the foundational develop of his character leading to the man he is today. Nicely done! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 3/17/2010

    " A little disjointed but still pretty great. Spenser's father and uncles are well drawn and do a fine job of showing how Spenser became Spenser without any George Lucas like suckyness. "
