The Spenser Collection Volume II Widow's Walk / Back Story - Spenser, Bks 29 & 30 - AudioCD - Unabridged Author:Robert B. Parker, Joe Mantegna (Narrator) Back Story — When Spenser tries to solve a thirty-year-old murder as a favor to an old friend, the lack of clues and the fact that an FBI intelligence report is missing force Spenser to reach out in every direction–to his old friend’s estranged hippie father; to Vinnie Morris and the mob; to the mysterious Ives–and... more » test his resourcefulness and courage. Taut, tense, and expertly crafted, this is Robert B. Parker at his story-telling best.
Spenser is back, this time to investigate the murder of a prominent local banker with family ties to the Mayflower–and perhaps the Mob. Unfortunately, Spenser’s up against a wall; leads go nowhere, no one knows a thing. Then a young woman, recently fired from her position at the victim’s bank, turns up dead as well. With its lean, crackling diaglogue, crisp action, and razor-sharp characters, Widow’s Walk is yet another triumph from master of suspense Robert B. Parker.
Another great collection! However, when listening, chronologically the first book happens after the second. It's no big deal but in the first story their dog Pearl has died and in the second she's still alive. However, this holds no bearing on the actually stories.
