Looking for Rachel Wallace

by Robert B. Parker

The Spenser Series

Rachel Wallace is a woman who writes and speaks her mind. She has made a lot of enemies—enemies who threaten her life.

Spenser is the tough guy with a macho code of honor, hired to protect a woman who thinks that code is obsolete.

Privately, they will never see eye to eye. That's why she fires him. But when Rachel vanishes, Spenser rattles skeletons in blue-blooded family closets, tangles with the Klan and fights for her right to be exactly what she is. He is ready to lay his life on the line to find Rachel Wallace.

Reviews

Spenser is..."The sassiest, funniest, most-enjoyable-to-read-about private eye around today...the legitimate heir to the Hammett-Chandler-Macdonald tradition."
The Cincinnati Post

Spenser is..."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."
The Boston Globe
