Stardust Author:Robert B. Parker Fifty Minuetes is the title of a Hollywood-based TV series being shot on location in Boston, but to Spenser it's "Trouble with a capital T." After signing on to protect its glamorous female star, Jill Joyce, from an escalating chain of anonymous harassments, he finds himself saddled with a lot more than he bargained for. — First, there's Jill Jo... more »yce herself. A purely Tinseltown product of sexism, the star system, and identity confusion, she is a spoiled, arrogant substance abuser with little idea of who or what she really is. Since someone's been out to get her, fear has transformed Jill into a nightmare version of the normally difficult self.
Then there's the matter of the mischievous harassments, which are growing steadily more serious. And when they blossom into homicide, Spenser knows the hardest work-and greatest risks-are yet to come: for the act is ended, but the murderer lingers on, watching and waiting to blow away the stardust-and the star.
Complex, unguessable, and wise in the twisting paths of human desire, Stardust is four-star noir suspense no Spenser fan will be able to resist.« less
