Spenser Part Five
The book list suggested there were almost 50 of the Spenser books, the last dozen, maybe, under a different author, but close enough to the original to count? Sure.
But bugger me, I wanted more from other characters. I understand there are spin-off versions of some material, but I liked the old Boston better. It was gritty and tough, Irish, Italian, immigrant, and all of that.
Finished the last one in the series while on my way back from Boston. After half a year, maybe forty or more novels, it’s like being familiar with a group, and left me wanting more. Enjoyable, but what I would like to see — read — is a series with some of the supporting characters as the protagonists. That last one was just like that.
Too bad the world of fiction, where the good guys win, and the bad guys are dead or buried, too bad the real world isn’t like that. But we can dream.
Slow Burn (2016)
Little White Lies (2017)
Old Black Magic (2018)
Art theft, in theory and practice.
Angel Eyes (2019)
Funny. With a left coast lilt.
Someone to Watch Over Me (2020)
Tie-in? Gray man, again? Nice twist.
Really have enjoyed the series thus far. Added character to the trip to Boston.
