Looking for a Parker-esque replacement while I wait for more of hiis characters books to be published. Has anyone found anyone suitable? I read the robert crais, Michael Connolly and Jonathan kellerman books. Any author suggestions for a die- hard Parker fan? Thanks!

The book that features Spenser & Jesse Stone together would be Back Story published in 2003

I have it in my head that I read a Spenser novel where he was locked up somewhere, like a cabin in the woods or something, and had to wait until he had lost a suffieciaent amount of weight to get out of his shackles and go home. Does this plot ring a bell with anyone?

I was really sorry to learn of the death of Robert Parker. He was one of my all time favorite authors. I came to really enjoy Sunny Randall and Jesse Stone. I love Spencer. I will miss reading about these characters but I will certainly miss Robert Parker's story telling. May he rest in peace.

Have read most of spenser series and all of stone and randall. Without having to backtrack which i may do because they're so good in which spenser book does he meet jesse? Spenser and hawk are on a stakeout in paradise.

I just found this message board! I'm a loyal fan of Parker's and am sorry I hadn't watched the Spenser tv series. I wish a channel would rerun the entire series (A&E?). I've read all of the Spenser series, but cannot 'get into' the Sunny Randall novels. Luckily, I've found the Jesse Stone novels which take place in Paradise and the tv movies w/Tom Selleck as the small town's police chief. Selleck is perfect in that role...laid back, no nonsense, talks only when he has something relevant to say. What I don't like in the Stone books is his boring relationship with Jennifer, his ex-wife. I yawn every time. Get a life, Jen! The cast of the Stone movies is very good, from Molly and Suit to Stephen McNally. I'm hoping that the new tv role for Selleck on Las Vegas does not keep him from his Stone role.

I am sure that the Spenser series is an acquired taste. I find no fault with any of the main characters; Spenser, Hawk, Susan, etc. knowing we view only a small portion of who they are. But the stories are touching, funny and thought-provoking. I am a loyal fan of Robert B. Parker. However, I have not branched out yet to Jesse Stone, I have listened to one of the Sunny books. But the Spenser series holds my heart.

Just finished Parker's latest Spenser novel, Hundred Dollar Baby. If you like Spenser you will enjoy this one. Must say that Spenser has never made me cry, this one did! Rather heartfelt exchange between Hawk and Spenser near the end of the story. (I am sure that Spenser and Hawk would both disapprove of "heartfelt").

I really enjoyed it when Sunny needs a shrink (in Melancholy baby) and she goes and sees Susan Silverman, who is Spenser's girlfriend, and then wonders what kind of guy Susan might live with!
I thought Sue Grafton was the best at intelligent, strong and conflicted female PI, but I find myslef liking Parker's Sunny more and more.
