To mystery fans, I have sad news. This wonderful author passed away today. He has written approximately 60 novels in his day (Spenser; Jesse Stone). His latest Jesse Stone novel has not yet been released. He will be missed!!!

They said on the news that he had a heart attack while sitting at his desk, writing.  Big loss.  Very sad.

And I have to say, I read nearly every one of his books.  I think he was Spencer "personnified"  Rest in peace with all the other wonderful writers that have enriched our lives.
