Publisher's Summary

The brilliant new Spenser novel from the beloved New York Times-best-selling author Robert B. Parker.

Called upon by The Hammond Museum and renowned art scholar Dr. Ashton Prince, Spenser accepts his latest case: to provide protection during a ransom exchange-money for a stolen painting.

The case becomes personal when Spenser fails to protect his client and the valuable painting remains stolen. Convinced that Ashton Prince played a bigger role than just ransom delivery boy, Spenser enters into a daring game of cat-and-mouse with the thieves. But this is a game he might not come out of alive....

Completed the year before he passed away, Painted Ladies is Spenser and Robert B. Parker at their electrifying best.

Crack another case with Spenser.

    "Highly recommend"

    Classic Spenser. This one is all good...plot, characterizations, etc...and no one but Mantegna should ever narrate a Spenser novel. I like the Jesse Stone novels better, but this is really an enjoyable listen. Highly recommend!

    "Always pleasant"

    I love RBP's Spenser, Joe Mantegna brings him to life for me. Thanks for such a great listen.

    "Spenser to the rescue"

    I enjoyed this novel--good action and mystery. Learned more about Susan & Spenser's relationship. A good listen!

    "Enough Said"

    This book as horrible. Every other word was "said". I love Joe Mantegna but it was painful to hear him reading this poorly written book.

    "I said.. he said... spot said... jane said..."

    I could barley get through the first chapter from the I said, kate said, she said jungle. I swear to God this book is composed mostly of these words. Reads like a kids book. I'm still struggling to get through it. I doubt if I would recommend this book. I suppose if you "read" this book you just ignore the "saids", but listening is brutal.This is the first time I bought this author, if the rest of his books read this way it'll be the last. When I finally finish it I may write another review, but don't hold your breath I said.

    "I SAID---SHE SAID"

    Perhaps I am listening to too many books. Parker's use of "I said, she said, I said", and Joe Mantegna's narration bugged me for the first time in the Spencer series. The plot was OK and the humor was there as usual. I missed Hawk. Mantegna portrays him well. In this book all of the characters had a Joe Mantegna accent. As I said, maybe its me....

    "Enough "Said""

    The incessant usage of the word "said" ruined this book for me, It was so distracting I stopped after an hour. Mr Montegna should have been given or requested more latitude in his reading.

    "disappointed"

    Great narrator, but terribly written. I could not finish the book, and i always finish a book.
