When Susan Silverman disappears with the heir to an underground weapons empire, Spenser breaks sidekick Hawk out of jail to help him with the search for her. But they also need the help of the CIA, and favours from the agency don't come cheap.
About the Author
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Robert B. Parker completed a PhD in English at Boston University. He began writing his Spenser novels in 1971 while teaching at Boston's Northeastern University. Little did he suspect then that his witty, literate prose and psychological insights would make him keeper-of-the-flame of America's rich tradition of detective fiction. He was named Grand Master of the 2002 Edgar Awards by the Mystery Writers of America.
