For Spenser, the job was another day at the office: a suspicious husband; a philandering wife; a hefty retainer. As often happens, the anxious spouse was right, but this assignment didn't end with separation or divorce; it ended with a triple homicide. And for Spenser, it didn't end at all. His routine snoop into adultery has aroused the ire of a terrorist sponsor who decides to wreak ghastly revenge by proxy. Love, honor, and intense suspense. One of Parker's best.
