Last night, my stepdaughter informed me a writer named Robert Parker died.
Today, I went online and discovered that my favourite author, Robert B. Parker, whom I have been reading for many years, died suddenly in January. He was 77.
Parker’s books are a quick, easy read. The characters are real, intelligent and moral.
While Spenser, Parker’s best-known character, is my favourite, I enjoyed the author’s other series including that of Jessie Stone and female private investigator Sunny Randall.
I enjoyed how the character’s, both primary and secondary, were found in other series.
I have read everything that Parker wrote, including westerns and a book about baseball.
I would recommend this author to everyone.
It’s a sad day for mystery readers and Parker fans.
