Prolific author Robert B. Parker penned this Spenser adventure in the last year before his death in 2010. In PAINTED LADIES the Boston private detective receives a request from the Hammond Museum and an art scholar to keep tabs on things while they negotiate the payment of ransom for a stolen work of art. But when the money gets handed off and the painting does not return to the museum, Parker must figure out what's really going on here--who can be trusted, who cannot--and where the elusive painting is hiding now.Prolific author Robert B.

Author Bio
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

"What Robert B. Parker was good at, for some 40 years and more than 60 books, was creating fast-paced, smoothly written, entertaining and even addictive stories, more than half of them involving Spenser, who often seemed vain (in a self-deprecating way) and smug, but who was always aware of his job's demands and was willing and able to meet them. Not a bad legacy for the past to bequeath the present." - Tom Nolan 10/02/2010

"Parker was one of the first to show us that a hard-boiled hero doesn't have to frown all the time, and we've been smiling along with Spenser ever since." - Bill Ott 05/01/2011
