His name was Jason Green and he was dead. When a shy high school student’s body is found washed up on the shore of a quiet New England beach town–an alleged suicide linked to steroids–fifteen-year-old boxer-in-training Terry Novak isn’t quite sure what to think. Something just doesn’t add up. Artsy and withdrawn, Jason wasn’t exactly the type to be doing ’roids.
So Terry, with the help of his friend Abby, decides to do some investigating of his own. It doesn’t take long, though, before they learn that asking questions puts them in grave danger and that survival is going to be a fight.
Fortunately, Terry has learned a thing or two about fighting.

Robert B. Parker recipient of the Grand Master Edgar Award, is a pillar of American detective fiction. He is the author of more than fifty books for adults, including the New York Times bestselling Spenser and Jesse Stone novels. The Boxer and the Spy is his second book for young readers. A lifelong resident of Massachusetts, he and his wife, Joan, currently live in Cambridge, where Mr. Parker has on more than one occasion stepped into the boxing ring–but just for the fun of it.From AudioFile:
THE BOXER AND THE SPY, the second juvenile fiction title by veteran mystery novelist Parker, taps into many of the first-time feelings experienced by adolescents trying to find out who they are. Narrator Scott Brick plays each part with an emotional gravity that forces listeners to care and root for the characters. The shy, poetic boy's death by suicide just doesn't feel right to wannabe boxer Terry Novak and his could-be girl friend, Abby, so they start to dig deeper into the illegal steroids trade in their small town, ruffling feathers and falling in love. Brick matches Parker's perfect pacing and pressure-packed action scenes, proving once again he's a "golden voice" to follow. R.O. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
