Robert Parker, 1932–2010

Mystery writer Robert B. Parker died Monday, January 18th, at his home in Cambridge, Mass. Parker was at his writing desk working on a new novel when he suffered a massive heart attack. He was 77.

Parker is best known for his creating the character Spenser, the hard-boiled private eye from Boston. Spenser proved to be such a popular character that he eventually got his own television series; from 1985 to 1988 Robert Urich starred as the detective in “Spenser: For Hire."

Parker was a prolific writer, writing over 60 novels in a variety of genres. There at least two more books that he completed before his desk that are expected to be published posthumously.
