Spenser is a wisecracking former boxer turned private investigator and he is just settling into his new office when enters Harv Shepard, a beleaguered businessman who is looking for someone to help locate his runaway wife. So begins Promised Land, the fourth novel by Robert Parker, that follows the exploits of his cerebral but tough character, detective Spenser. Why Harv Shepard's wife abandoned her family and exactly where she has gone comprise only half the intrigue in this story, though Spenser soon discovers that Harv is a man in deep trouble, involved with a crooked loan shark and tangled in an ailing business venture. The real reason we keep turning the pages of Promised Land is because of the compelling figure cut by detective Spenser. The way in which he gets the information he gets about the case from police detectives, bartenders, and local thugs-Spenser's unique bracing blend of irony and sincerity that almost never encourages the people he encounters to really like him--is as interesting as the information he gets. Spenser is clever, often hilarious and his quips have something more than self-amusement as their end. Beneath the air of insouciant detachment and irony is a quixotic concern, as witnessed by his often self-sacrificing actions. The people Spenser meets often made predictable mistakes, falling into the same traps he has seen countless others fall into, and out of which they are mistakenly sure they can get out. Although he is weary of watching this pageant of human weakness and failure time and again, Spenser cannot help but become emotionally entangled in his cases, no matter how numbingly predictable they may be.

“Robert B. Parker has taken his place beside Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Ross Macdonald,” The Boston Globe once wrote. But over the course of a legendary literary career, Parker single-handedly reinvented American detective fiction for the modern world with his irreverent, idealistic protagonist, Spenser. This exclusive eBook bundle brings together five of the best early Spenser mysteries, including the first three in the series: THE GODWULF MANUSCRIPT (Book 1) GOD SAVE THE CHILD (Book 2) MORTAL STAKES (Book 3) EARLY AUTUMN (Book 7) A CATSKILL EAGLE (Book 12) From a murdered student at an elite university to a star Red Sox pitcher accused of throwing games, from the affluent Massachusetts suburbs to the backstreets of Boston and the backwoods of Maine, these immersive novels are grounded in place, peopled by a diverse cast of characters, and bursting with Spenser’s signature humor and attitude. Praise for Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels “Crackling dialogue, plenty of action and expert writing . . . Unexpectedly literate—[Spenser is] in many respects the very exemplar of the species.”—The New York Times “They just don’t make private eyes tougher or funnier.”—People “Parker has a recorder’s ear for dialogue, an agile wit . . . and, strangely enough, a soupçon of compassion hidden under that sardonic, flip exterior.”—Los Angeles Times “A deft storyteller, a master of pace.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Spenser probably had more to do with changing the private eye from a coffin-chaser to a full-bodied human being than any other detective hero.”—The Chicago Sun-Times “[Spenser is] tough, intelligent, wisecracking, principled, and brave.”—The New Yorker

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
