‘Will captivate both longtime and soon-to-be-devoted Spenser lovers’ Kirkus Reviews

A local theatre director claims he is being followed. An actor is gunned down onstage. There’s more behind the scenes than an overzealous critic – and private detective Spenser intends to find out exactly what that is…

‘If you’re already a Spenser fan, you’ll like this one. If you’ve never read Robert B. Parker, welcome aboard. After Walking Shadow you’ll have a lot of books to catch up on’ New York Times

Tougher, stronger, better educated, and far more amusing than Sam Spade, Phil Marlowe or Lewis Archer . . . Spenser gives the connoisseur of that rare combination of good detective fiction and good literature a chance to indulge himself’ Boston Globe
