There were stories everywhere, like tadpoles in spring, and I first started writing them down because they were funny and because I was afraid they would be lost if someone didn’t get them on paper.

The better one is whether this latest Back Story sparks even a glimmer of caution in the next ownership group that spots a player it just can't live without.

 Bookreporter.com - BACK STORY by Robert B. Parker
I was about a third of the way through BACK STORY, the new Spenser novel by Robert B. Parker, when I happened to get a call from an older friend who had coincidentally first thrust a Spenser novel, PROMISED LAND, into my hands many years ago.
The reason that this is worth relating is that Parker is now writing for three generations of Spenser fans, with no sign of slowing down and, if BACK STORY is any indication, no sign of rust.
BACK STORY marks the return of Paul Giacomin, Spenser's almost-son; though he has little involvement in the story, he is its indirect catalyst.
