A knock on Spenser's office door can only mean one thing: a new case. This time the visitor is a local lawyer with an interesting story. Elizabeth Shaw specializes in wills and trusts at the Boston law firm of Shaw & Cartwright, and over the years she's developed a friendship with wives of very wealthy men. However, these rich wives have a mutual secret: they've all had an affair with a man named Gary Eisenhower- and now he's blackmailing them for money. Shaw hires Spenser to make Eisenhower "cease and desist," so to speak, but when women start turning up dead, Spenser's assignment goes from blackmail to murder.

As matters become more complicated, Spenser's longtime love, Susan, begins offering some input by analyzing Eisenhower's behavior patterns in hopes of opening up a new avenue of investigation. It seems that not all of Gary's women are rich. So if he's not using them for blackmail, then what is his purpose? Spenser switches tactics to focus on the husbands, only to find that innocence and guilt may be two sides of the same coin. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " All of Robert Parker's novels, whether about Spenser, Jesse Stone, Sunny Randall, or a western, are so enjoyable. If you need a quick shot of mystery and intrigue he is the writer to whom you can turn with confidence. His characters are so well written that they feel like old friends. That may be cliched, but it is true. With literary references sprinkled about, ala Ruth Rendell minus the pretention, a reader can even enjoy a bit of smugness when the allusions are recognized. I think I have read them all...I certainly mean to do so. "

    " I love me some Spenser novels. Parker is a master at dialog and banter, especially between Spenser and Susan, his lady love. I believe this was Parker's last novel before his death. I miss him already. "
