      • bioText: Featuring rapid-fire dialogue and spicy characters, Robert B. Parker's books are top-shelf reading for fans of detective crime novels. His Spenser series is several titles strong and an established classic; lately Parker has raised the stakes with two additional series (one featuring private eye Sunny Randle, the other featuring police chief Jesse Stone) that may eventually rival his beloved Boston P.I.Parker passed away in January 2010 at the age of 77, following a successful career writing more than 60 books that audiences continue to enjoy. 

        Joe Mantegna is a versatile, seasoned actor on both stage and screen; he first garnered national prominence for his work with writer-director David Mamet, earning a Tony award for Glengarry Glen Ross in 1983. He currently stars in the hit TV show Criminal Minds. Mr. Mantegna has become synonomous with Robert B. Parker's Spenser; he narrates the entire Spenser series for BOT. Mantegna is also the voice of Fat Tony on The Simpsons.

Widow's Walk
fullDescription
Four Cassettes, 6 hrs. unabridged
Read by
Boston's premier P.I investigates the murder of a prominent local banker, with family ties to the Mayflower - and perhaps the mob.
When fifty-one year old Nathan Smith, a confirmed bachelor, is found dead in his bed with a hole in his head made by a .38 caliber slug, it's hard not to imagine Nathan's young bride as the one with her finger on the trigger. Even her lawyer thinks she's guilty. But given that Mary Smith is entitled to the best defense she can afford - and thanks to Nathan's millions, she can afford plenty - Spenser hires on to investigate Mary's bona fides.
Mary's alibi is a bit on the flimsy side: she claims she was watching television in another room when the murder occurred. But the couple was seen fighting at a high-profile cocktail party earlier that evening and the prosecution has a witness who says Mary once tried to hire him to kill Nathan. What's more, she's too pretty, too made-up, too blonde, and sleeps around - just the kind of person a jury loves to hate.
Spenser's up against the wall; leads go nowhere, no one knows a thing. Then a young woman, recently fired from her position at Smith's bank, turns up dead. Mary's vacant past suddenly starts looking meaner and darker - and Spenser's suddenly got to watch his back.
With lean, crackling dialogue, crisp action and razor-sharp characters, WIDOW'S WALK is another triumph.
