On location in Boston, bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. As the case grows darker and secrets about both Jumbo and the dead girl come to light, it''s Spenser--with Nelson''s bodyguard Zebulon Sixkill at his side--who must put things right.
Annotation:
Published posthumously, SIXKILL is Robert B. Parker's final entry in his popular series starring Boston private detective Spenser. With the Red Sox's season only a few weeks from starting, Spenser agrees to investigate the death and sexual assault of a young woman. Jumbo Nelson--a cocky, lascivious actor--is the prime suspect. While working on the case, the private eye meets the actor's bodyguard, an athletic young man named Zebulon Sixkill, and their unusual friendship--and ultimate case-cracking collusion--forms the real heft of this enjoyable novel.
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.
