Spenser’s latest case is a work of art
Twenty years after the priceless paintings were heisted from one of Boston’s premier art museums, most think the art is lost forever—buried deep, sold overseas, or destroyed as incriminating evidence. But when paint chips from the Spanish masterpiece Gentlemen in Black arrive at the desk of a Boston journalist, the museum enlists Spenser’s help.
A $5 million reward offered by the museum’s top benefactor, an unlikable Boston socialite, sets Spenser and pals Vinnie Morris and Hawk on a trail of secrets, lies, jailhouse confessions, and decades-old murders. The cold case thrusts Spenser into Boston’s high-society art scene and low-life back alleys, a shady world of black-market art dealers, aged Mafia bosses, and old vendettas.
"Spenser is as tough and funny as ever, and Atkins has become a worthy successor.”—Booklist
“Atkins has done a splendid job of capturing the voice of the late Robert B. Parker.”—Publishers Weekly
