A Red Sox bigwig hires Spenser to investigate a pitcher who he suspects has been intentionally blowing games. Spenser’s investigations take him into a web of deceit and blackmail and the pitcher’s wife is caught in the middle…
Spenser is really growing on me. I have to admit I wasn’t completely sold in the first two books. In this one, I think Parker started hitting on all cylinders.
Mortal Stakes is a tale of a small town girl in Boston being punished for the sins of her past and her husband, Red Sox pitcher Marty Rabb, is being blackmailed by gamblers. Spenser noses around, busts some heads, and eventually gets them in the clear, but not without a price.
