Riassunto: Boston has been described, detailed, and displayed many times and by many observers. From its Puritan beginnings in 1630 to the present, the city has been the subject of countless books, essays, and articles.
Nobody, though, has managed to survey the various charms and quirks of Boston like Spenser and Hawk, the ever popular pair of crime solvers created by novelist Robert B. Parker. Here, in the introduction to Boston: History in the Making, Spenser and his frequent partner are hot on the trail of yet another suspicious character who's apparently working a scam amid the streets and watering holes of Boston.
As they follow their suspect, Spenser and Hawk deliver a guided tour of the city, from the shops and restaurants of Beacon Hill to the swan boats at the Public Garden to the Italian enclave in the North End. Spenser figures the duo is about "as inconspicuous . . . as two tarantulas on a wedding cake," but they manage to solve their case and, in the process, introduce us to Boston as only they could. Accompanying Parker's introduction are hundreds of outstanding images culled from the collections of the area's finest photographers.
The result is a portrait of Boston filled with details of a city where the trail is never cold, the sleuths are never idle, and the discoveries that each neighborhood holds are nothing short of exhilarating.
