Fans of Robert Parker now have a brand new, street-smart Boston inner most eye with the Christian identify of “Fenway,” who covers an analogous turf as Spencer, yet whose domestic base is a rusting, steel-hulled, fifty-eight foot boat moored in Marblehead harbor approximately 10 miles north of Boston.
Fenway Burke is solid by way of Phoenix within the similar blunt, masculine, first individual form of such a lot of nice, hardboiled detective novels. The memorable characters in body Up contain a hulk of a guy named Tiny, who runs Boston’s greatest bookie operation; a white-bearded lobsterman named Wiff, a fixture in Maddie’s Bar on entrance road in Marblehead; and Fenway’s love curiosity, Megan Griffin, a six-foot tall, statuesque Boston public defender.
The motion is quick, the characters are memorable, and the unforeseen is to be anticipated during this brilliantly conceived crime sequence that provides a brand new contender within the pantheon of serious inner most eyes.
