The brilliant new Spenser novel from the beloved New York Times -bestselling author Robert B. Parker.

Called upon by The Hammond Museum and renowned art scholar Dr. Ashton Prince, Spenser accepts his latest case: to provide protection during a ransom exchange-money for a stolen painting.

The case becomes personal when Spenser fails to protect his client and the valuable painting remains stolen. Convinced that Ashton Prince played a bigger role than just ransom delivery boy, Spenser enters into a daring game of cat-and-mouse with the thieves. But this is a game he might not come out of alive...

Completed the year before he passed away, Painted Ladies is Spenser and Robert B. Parker at their electrifying best.

I liked it. A good old fashioned Spenser story.
Something goes wrong, Spenser pokes around and annoys people but not at random.
It was a simple mystery, I even figured it out before Mr Detective.

Sadly not his best but his last. I would bet the greedy heirs will find some way to keep turning out fakes.

Rather dull with no real intrigue. Not his best for sure. Farfetched in the least. It's what happens when an author is before a blank page. Sometime the result is not very good.
