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
"[POTSHOT]'s classic Parker: the formula stays fresh; the humor and chivalry are as refreshing as they were in the early books."
"Even though less is not always more, Spenser fans will probably forgive Parker, again, for his brand of minimalist fiction."
"Even after 27 books, Parker still finds clever ways to invigorate his Spenser series.... Parker's terse prose nicely suits this transplanted Western..."
