A high society wedding ends unhappily ever after in this mystery starring Boston PI Spenser—“the timeless hero of American detective fiction” (The New York Times Book Review).

Praise For…

Praise for Rough Weather
Rough Weather is bliss.”—The Spectator
“Comically acerbic...the reader is treated to all the familiar pleasures...Spenser sitting in his office overlooking Berkeley Street in Boston; the knock on the door announcing a client; Spenser's rapier repartee with client and suspects; the return of his love, Susan, given a larger role here; the always amusing interplay with the mercurial Hawk, Spenser's muscle; and Parker's graceful descriptions of interiors, meals, and clothes.”—Booklist
“As usual, Parker's crisp, unadorned style is superb. Parker remains a major figure in American crime fiction.”—Associated Press
“Robert B. Parker at his very best with a great suspenseful mystery enhanced by the hero’s even greater love for Susan...The storyline is fast-paced from the moment the Gray Man arrives in a shockingly fumbled caper, but it is the dry-witted Spenser who turns the tale into a thriller’s thriller.”—Midwest Book Review
