About the Book
Parker's legacy lives on in this new murder-mystery based on his bestselling Spenser series.
From the Publisher
When fourteen-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into
her mother's murder, he's not completely convinced by her claim
that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is
gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for
her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated
apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her
determination to make things right hit Spenser where he
lives-they're the very characteristics he abides by.
Mattie believes the man convicted of the crime is innocent, and
points Spenser to the Southie toughs she saw carrying her mother
away hours before her murder. Neither the Boston PD nor the
neighborhood thugs are keen on his dredging up the past, but as
Spenser becomes more involved in the case, he starts to realize
that Mattie may be on to something. He will need Hawk's help to
find peace for Mattie-a job that's more dangerous than Spenser ever
