Books by Robert Parker

Back a few months ago, my father mentioned this "new"author that he heard information about on a radio program.  Then after looking Robert B Parker up, realized that he has so many books out that there was tons of reading to do.  I started with the Jesse Stone series from start to end which I loved.  It was very much like the television movies (if you have seen them) so I couldn't get past picturing Tom Selleck in the lead character. 

After finishing that series, I started on the Spenser novels.  I just finished  Playmates (Spenser, No 16) by Robert B. Parker.  I have liked all of the books that I have read and this was no different.  Parker writes a very fast moving book that always turns into running for the next one in the series!  I am going to be very sad when I make it to the end of the series but I know that there are a few other books still left to read.  If you are looking for a highly entertaining, quick read that has laughs and mystery, I highly recommend any of Robert B. Parker's books.

The book description on Amazon is very short but hopefully gives you an idea of the book without spoiling what it is about.  Spenser, America's favorite iron-pumping, gourmet-cooking private eye, smells corruption in college town. Taft University's hottest basketball star is shaving points for quick cash, and if Spenser doesn't watch his own footwork, the guilty parties will shave a few years off his life.  

In case you read my other post about Johnnycakes, they did eat them early on in the book :)  I laughed since I know that they have had them before but how was I to know that I was forecasting them in this book too!!!  Hope you try a book and enjoy them as much as I do.
