Spenser Books in Order, by Robert B. Parker

Spenser is a private investigator with a strong moral code and a tough exterior. Set in Boston, the story follows Spenser as he takes on various cases, often involving crime, corruption, and complex mysteries. Throughout the series, he forms enduring relationships with other characters, including his love interest Susan Silverman, and his close friend Hawk, a street-smart enforcer. This detective fiction series was written by Robert B. Parker (Jesse Stone) and later continued by Ace Atkins following Parker’s death.
