The brilliant new Spenser novel from the beloved New York Times-bestselling author Robert B. Parker.
Called upon by The Hammond Museum and renowned art scholar Dr. Ashton Prince, Spenser accepts his latest case: to provide protection during a ransom exchange-money for a stolen painting.
The case becomes personal when Spenser fails to protect his client and the valuable painting remains stolen. Convinced that Ashton Prince played a bigger role than just ransom delivery boy, Spenser enters into a daring game of cat-and-mouse with the thieves. But this is a game he might not come out of alive...
Completed the year before he passed away, Painted Ladies is Spenser and Robert B. Parker at their electrifying best.

Robert B. Parker was the author of more than fifty books, including the recent New York Times bestsellers Split Image and The Professional. He passed away in January 2010. Visit the author’s website at: www.robertbparker.netFrom AudioFile:
Series narrator Joe Mantegna clearly delivers Robert Parker's uncluttered writing and sharp dialogue. He conveys just the right notes of sarcasm and humor to capture both P.I. Spenser's cockiness and his more introspective side. In this novel Spenser seems more inside himself than usual as he works alone (Hawk is AWOL) to unsnarl a tangle of art thefts and moral challenges that have their roots in the Holocaust. The lovely Susan's frequent appearances offer needed breaks in the violence and help maintain the snappy repartee. Although there is rumor of one more book still to be released in the series, fans lament the loss of Parker and his appealing Boston P.I. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
