Widow's Walk, published in 2002, is Robert B. Parker's 29th book in the Spenser mystery series. In this one, the Boston private eye is asked by his old friend Rita, a lawyer, to help with a defense case they are working on. Spenser is trying to determine if woman has murdered her husband. However, he soon finds the case very frustrating because the woman is not very bright or forthcoming with information. The more Spenser digs into the case, the more confusing it gets.
Then the ante gets upped as people whom Spenser talks with start dropping like flies.
I found this one very unpredictable and that kept me wanting to read more. I wanted to know how Spenser would solve this one, but I was confident he would. So seldom has he not.
