Publisher's summary

TV reporter Candy Sloan has eyes the color of cornflowers and legs that stretch all the way to heaven. She also has somebody threatening to rearrange her lovely face if she keeps on snooping into charges of Hollywood racketeering.

Spenser's job is to keep Candy healthy until she breaks the biggest story of her career. But her star witness has just bowed out with three bullets in his chest, two tough guys have doubled up to test Spenser's skill with his fists, and Candy is about to use her own sweet body as live bait in a deadly romantic game--a game that may cost Spenser his life.

Crack another case with Spenser.

"Tough, wisecracking, unafraid, lonely, unexpectedly literate--an many respects the very examplar of the species." -- The New York Times

Spencer is a great character

I became hooked on Robert Parker's series featuring Spencer after reading the very first book in the series. I have now read them all. It is a great series and well worth your time getting to know Spencer and his fascinating group of friends, especially Hawk.
