Description
'Ebullient entertainment.''Time

A hotshot reporter is dead. He'd gone to take a look-see at 'Miami North''little Wheaton, Massachusetts'the biggest cocaine distribution center above the Mason-Dixon line.

Did the kid die for getting too close to the truth . . . or to a sweet lady with a jealous husband?

Spenser will stop at nothing to find out.

Praise for Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels

'Like Philip Marlowe, Spenser is a man of honor in a dishonorable world. When he says he will do something, it is done. The dialogues zings, and there is plenty of action . . . but it is the moral element that sets them above most detective fiction.''Newsweek

'Crackling dialogue, plenty of action and expert writing . . . Unexpectedly literate'[Spenser is] in many respects the very exemplar of the species.''The New York Times
 
'They just don't make private eyes tougher or funnier.''People
 
'Parker has a recorder's ear for dialogue, an agile wit . . . and, strangely enough, a soupçon of compassion hidden under that sardonic, flip exterior.''Los Angeles Times
 
'A deft storyteller, a master of pace.''The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
'Spenser probably had more to do with changing the private eye from a coffin-chaser to a full-bodied human being than any other detective hero.''The Chicago Sun-Times
 
'[Spenser is] tough, intelligent, wisecracking, principled, and brave.''The New Yorker
