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
"'Chance' is vintage Spenser."
"...deeply satisfying page by page."
"...in 'Chance', as always, Mr. Parker makes you laugh at the subtle variations he works on his politically incorrect themes. And as always, he occasionally turns his gags into touching sentiment..."
"Parker hasn't lost his ear for hard-boiled dialogue, and Vegas hasn't lost its glitz."
"The good news is that the dialogue is as brisk and clever as always."
"Tremendously stylish, shimmering with readability."
From the Publisher
Annotation Spenser and Hawk are on their way to Las Vegas to find the missing son-in-law of high-level criminal Julius Ventura. His name is Anthony and he's flown the coop with his lady love, Bibi, after he ripped off Julius. All this is linked to a struggle for control of the Boston mob, which Spenser and Hawk discover when they travel to Vegas to retrieve him.
Editors Note Mafia princess Shirley Meeker wants her husband back. So does her father, kingpin Julius Ventura, and a few other shady characters. Spenser and Hawk head to Vegas to find Anthony Meeker--and confirm their suspicion that all these people aren't just missing Anthony's smile. And when bodies start turning up, Spenser has to make sense of some very disorganized crime.
Editors Note 2 Spenser and his sidekick, Hawk, become entangled in the affairs of the Mafia and in an internecine struggle for control of the Boston underworld when they set out to find the errant spouse of the daughter of big-time Boston hoodlum Julius Ventura
