Description
The Boston PI gets tangled in Cape Cod's criminal underworld in this Edgar Award–winning mystery from the New York Times–bestselling author.

Cape Cod businessman Harvey Shepard is in over his head. He lost a quarter million on a shady real estate deal, the loan shark is circling, and now he needs a private investigator to find out where his wife, Pam, disappeared to. Spencer takes the case, but finding Pam isn't the hard part—the hard part is finding out she's suspected of a bank robbery that led to murder.

Robert B. Parker's Spencer novels featuring the former boxer turned Boston PI are "one of the great series in the history of the American detective story." Promised Land, the Edgar Award–winning fourth Spencer novel, was also adapted into the pilot episode of the classic tv series Spencer: For Hire (The New York Times).

      • bioText:

        Robert B. Parker is one of contemporary fiction's most popular and most respected detective novelists. Best known for his portrayal of the tough but erudite private investigator Spenser, Parker has written over twenty five novels over the course of his writing career, beginning with 1973's The Godwulf Manuscript. That novel introduced Spenser, who would be featured in over dozens more novels, including God Save the Child (1974), Mortal Stakes (1975), Promised Land (1976) and Sudden Mischief (1998).

        Parker worked in advertising before earning his Ph.D. in English and American literature with a dissertation on Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and John D. MacDonald. He taught for a time at Northeastern University before launching his career as an author, a career that met with success from the very first submission.

        Parker's acclaim and his deep background in classic detective literature helped earn him the somewhat unusual commission of completing a Philip Marlowe novel that the great Chandler had left unfinished. The result, the novel Poodle Springs, was adapted into a film by HBO and starred James Caan as the famous detective. Parker also wrote a sequel to Chandler's classic The Big Sleep entitled Perchance to Dream (1991). Robert B. Parker lives with his wife in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
