166. Rough Weather by Robert B Parker

about the book

Heidi Bradshaw is wealthy, beautiful, and well connected–and she needs Spenser’s help. In a most unlikely request, Heidi, a notorious gold digger recently separated from her latest husband, recruits the Boston P.I. to accompany her to her private island, Tashtego, for her daughter’s wedding. Spenser is unsure of what his role as personal bodyguard will entail, but he consents when it’s decided that he can bring his beloved Susan Silverman along.
It should be a straightforward job for Spenser: show up for appearances, have some drinks, and spend some quality time with Susan. Yet when his old nemesis Rugar–the Gray Man–arrives on Tashtego, Spenser realizes that something is amiss. With a hurricane-level storm brewing outside, the Gray Man jumps into action, firing fatal shots into the crowd of wedding guests and kidnapping the bride–but Spenser knows that the sloppy guns-for-hire abduction is not Rugar’s style. Unable to prevent the attack, Spenser will stop at nothing to recover the kidnapped bride and figure out how the Gray Man is connected. It’s up to Spenser to decide who the real enemy is . . . before more people end up dead

I used to really love his books. If you want to read this one, borrow it from the library. This book could have been summed up in 2 chapters. I hope the next book is better.

awwww... it did sound exciting the way you summarized it. Hopefully the next one will be more action-packed and intriguing.

Just dropping by to say "hello"! You've been so quiet in AN2R, lately. Miss you. :)

Jen it has been awhile since he wrote an action-packed one

Bookfool. Thanks for stopping by. I will attempt to get caught up tomorrow. Work has been insane that by the time I get home I just end up reading books or watching tv.

That's understandable. I just wanted to let you know you've been missed!
