About The Book: Legendary Boston PI Spenser is back in Robert B. Parker's Someone To Watch Over Me, the thirty-third installment in the critically acclaimed saga started by the late Parker and the ninth to be written by New York Times-bestselling author Ace Atkins. Time and time again, fans come back to Spenser: a character as relevant today as he was fifty years ago who has always stood for honor and honesty in a sordid world. Drawing real-life inspiration from the Jeffrey Epstein scandal that rocked the nation in 2019, this latest entry teams Spenser up once again with his young protégé Mattie Sullivan to take on a billionaire money manager running a network of underage girls for his rich and powerful clients. Series devotees will be thrilled to see “Parker’s greatest creation” (Chicago Sun-Times) alongside a strong female counterpart in this thrilling new adventure, which Putnam publishes January 12, 2021.

About The Series: A collection of North of Boston libraries have joined forces to host a series of virtual discussions with bestselling authors this fall and winter. This event is co-sponsored by libraries in Andover, Billerica, Chelmsford, North Reading, Tewksbury, Wilmington and Woburn.
