Author Info
Robert B. Parker
Robert B. Parker is best known for his mystery novels featuring Private Detective Spenser. While investigating homicides and tracking down serial killers, Detective Spenser travels throughout Boston and the surrounding areas in search of answers. Not surprisingly, Robert Parker spent most of his life in New England. In 1954, Parker graduated from Colby College in Maine. In 1957 he received his PhD degree in English from Boston University, studying detective fiction. In addition to writing mystery novels, Parker worked as an Army radioman, a technical and advertising writer, and a college English teacher. His Spenser character has been adopted for the big and small screens, and Parker himself started an independent film-production company with his wife. Critically and commercially successful, Parker was named a Grand Master by the Edgar Awards in 2002. He died in 2010 at the age of 77.
Praise
"Parker does his big one, sails through generations with perfect pitch in his dialog and suspense that never lets up."
"Mr. Parker may not have very much new to say, but he is, in fact, a skilled writer who possesses the secret of narrative drive. In short bursts, he can plumb true human emotion...; he can capture the essence of a scene with a minimum of detail...; and he can make a fight scene exciting to the point of exhilaration....If, in writing a mainstream novel, Mr. Parker intended to enlighten readers as to the human condition in ways he felt unavailable through a mystery format, he must be considered to have fallen short of the mark. As entertainment, however, 'All Our Yesterdays' succeeds as admirably as any of his Spenser books."
From the Publisher
Editors Note They were the Sheridan men, ruled by passion, betrayed by love, heirs to a legacy of violence and forbidden desire. Gus, Bostons top homicide cop: he knew equally well the backroom politics of City Hall and the private passions of the very rich, a man haunted by the wanton courage and perilous obsessions he inherited from his father... Conn, the patriarch, a lawless cop who spawned a circle of vengeance and betrayal that would span half a century... and Chris, Gus's beloved son, a Harvard lawyer and criminologist, fated to risk everything to break the chain of obsession and rage... Three generations linked by crime and punishment--cops and heroes, fathers, sons, and lovers united at last by revelations that could bring a family to its knees...
Editors Note 1 It started when Conn Sheridan fell in love with Hadley Winslow, a sophisticated Boston society woman he could never have. Conn's obsession compelled him to commit an act that would inextricably bind two families and three generations of cops in their shared disgrace--until one Sheridan had the courage to shatter the covenant.
Editors Note 2 Three generations of legal corruption are seen through the stories of patriarch and lawless cop Conn, politically aware homicide officer Gus, and Chris, a Harvard lawyer and determined criminologist. Reprint.
Editors Note 3 Fleeing the turbulence of 1920s Ireland, Conn Sheridan, a reckless young IRA captain, builds a new life as a Boston police officer, but the betrayals, violence, and obsessions of the past continue to haunt him and his family for three generations
