    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Robert B. Parker's iconic and irresistible PI Sunny Randall is back, and the stakes are higher than ever as she races to protect her ex-husband--and his Mafia family--from the vengeful plan of a mysterious rival. Sunny Randall is "on" again with Richie, the ex-husband she never stopped loving and never seemed to be able to let go, despite her discomfort with his Mafia connections. When Richie is shot and nearly killed, Sunny is dragged into the thick of his family's business as she searches for answers and tries to stave off a mob war. But as the bullets start flying in Boston's mean streets, Sunny finds herself targeted by the deranged mastermind of the plot against the Burke family, whose motive may be far more personal than she could have anticipated.."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2018 September #2

*Starred Review* Boston private investigator Sunny Randall and the love of her live, Richie Burke, used to be married. Now they are a couple again—sorta. They are exclusive, but maintain separate lives. When Richie, a nonparticipating heir to an Irish crime family in Boston, is shot in the back (but lives), Sunny responds in her typically fearless fashion: find out who and why, and do something about it. Sunny's first angle is that the shooting is related to the family business; she knows that Richie's father, Desmond Burke, outlasted even the legendary Boston crime figure Whitey Bulger. ?But there's also a big gun deal in the making that could be behind the shooting. Warned off her investigation by both Richie and his father, Sunny ignores both and learns that there was a woman long ago who may have been simultaneously involved with Desmond and a rival. So Sunny concludes that the motive for the shooting may stretch back 40 years—or maybe only to yesterday. That narrows it down. Lupica, an award-winning sports columnist, author of 40 books, and longtime friend of the late Parker, nails the Sunny Randall character and the Boston criminal milieu that Parker created. The patter is snappy. The criminal honor codes are only understood by the criminals but are dismissed anyway when they interfere with personal enrichment. Even family loyalties come and go. Great stuff, Parker fans. Sunny's back! Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

In a Facebook poll conducted by the publisher, fans of the legendary Robert B. Parker said they wanted to see more of his only female protagonist, PI Sunny Randall. In response, here's her first outing in more than a decade. Ex-husband Richie's Mafia connections have always troubled her, and now she's been targeted in a plot against his family.

PW Reviews 2018 September #2

Edgar finalist Lupica (Dead Air) does justice to the work of MWA Grand Master Robert B. Parker in this splendid continuation of the late author's Sunny Randall series. Sunny, a smart-aleck Boston PI, is wrestling with what role her ex-husband, Richie Burke, should play in her life. In her loneliness, she turns to psychiatrist Susan Silverman, a regular in Parker's Spenser series, for help in exploring her psyche. The stakes rise when a gunman shoots Richie, the son of powerful Irish mobster Desmond, with the intention of only wounding him, and tells Richie that he was paying for the "sins of the father." Sunny pursues the case, despite warnings to leave it alone from men on both sides of the law; her resolve only strengthens when escalating violence claims someone close to Richie. Lupica hits the sweet spot by balancing Sunny's professional hypercompetence with first-person narration that exposes her fears and self-doubts. Parker fans will look forward to seeing what Lupica does with Sunny in her next outing. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM. (Nov.)
