About the author

Biography of Parker, Robert B.

Robert Brown Parker was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, on September 17, 1932. He received a B.A. from Colby College in 1954, served in the U.S. Army in Korea, and then returned to receive a M. A. in English literature from Boston University in 1957. He received a Ph.D. in English literature from Boston University in 1971. Before becoming a full-time writer in 1979, he taught at Lowell State College, Bridgewater State College and Northwestern University.

In 1971, Parker published The Godwuff Manuscript, as homage to Raymond Chandler. The character he created, Spencer, became his own detective and was featured in more than 30 novels. His Spencer character has been featured in six TV movies and the television series Spencer: For Hire that starred Robert Urich and ran from 1985 to 1988. He is also the author of the Jesse Stone series, which has been made into a series of television movies for CBS, and the Sunny Randall series.

His novel Appaloosa (2005) was made into a 2008 movie directed by and starring Ed Harris. He has received numerous awards for his work including an Edgar Award for Best Novel in 1977 for The Promised Land, Grand Master Edgar Award for his collective oeuvre in 2002, and the Gumshoe Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. He died of a heart attack on January 18, 2010 at the age of 77.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2008-05-01)

Parker's writing is a pure pleasure to read--terse and strong, it carries a good story and lays its messages between the lines. His latest Western picks up where Appaloosa left off with Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole together again working as hired guns for a nasty SOB named Wolfson. Wolfson wants to own the whole town of Resolution, but Eamon O'Malley, the local mine owner, stands in his way--Eamon with his gunslingers Cato and Rose.

Wolfson is also squeezing the local farmers and small ranchers out of business. A range war is inevitable, and Cole and Hitch wind up champions of the little guys. This is more of a shoot-'em-up than Appaloosa was--plenty of action, not too much character development, fast and fun to read. Could this be the beginning of a new series? The film version of Appaloosa starring Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, and Renee Zellweger is set to be released later this year. Highly recommended for all Western collections.
