As I say, I'm not sure I'd have undertaken it....
oh, yeah, I would. They were offering me a lot
Robert B. Parker
While I like his mysteries immensely, his novels were always a nice surprise. Here are a few of my favorite Parker non-mysteries:
For me, Parker wrote some of best westerns I have read. Both Gunman's Rhapsody and Appaloosa will give you an eyeopening visit to the old west; Double Play made me wish that the friendship between Jackie Robinson and Joseph Burke wasn't fiction because of the way Parker wrote about it. I hoped that Robinson did have someone like Burke to help him during that time. If you have only enjoyed Parker's mysteries, give his novels a try. Trust me, you'll be glad you did.
Thank you Robert B. Parker for writing some terrific books, introducing us to some great characters, and for making reading an enjoyment. You will be missed.
