ROBERT B. PARKER’S ANGEL EYES is the newest entry in the late Robert B. Parker’s beloved series starring the legendary Boston PI Spenser. This latest addition—the eighth to be written by bestselling author and longtime Spenser fan Ace Atkins—sends Spenser to the City of Angels, where the disappearance of an aspiring actress unearths old friends and new enemies. In a city where glitz and glamour are only a thin veneer over a dangerous underbelly, Spenser will have his work cut out for him in ROBERT B. PARKER’S ANGEL EYES.
Gabby Leggett left her Boston family with dreams of making it big as a model/actress in Hollywood. Two years later, she disappears from her apartment. Her family, former boyfriend, friends—and the police—have no idea where she is and no leads. Leggett’s mother hires Spenser to find her, with help of his former apprentice, Zebulon Sixkill, now an L.A. private eye. Spenser barely has time to unpack before the trail leads to a powerful movie studio boss, the Armenian mob, and a shadowy empowerment group some say might be a dangerous cult. It’s soon clear that Spenser and Sixkill may be outgunned this time, and series favorites Chollo and Bobby Horse ride to the rescue to provide backup. From the mansions of Beverly Hills to the lawless streets of a small California town, Spenser will need to watch his step. In Hollywood, all that glitters isn’t gold. And not all those who wander are lost.
Robert B. Parker was the author of seventy books, including the legendary Spenser detective series, the novels featuring police chief Jesse Stone, and the acclaimed Virgil Cole-Everett Hitch westerns, as well as the Sunny Randall novels.
