In Double Play, Mr. Parker lists several 1947 box scores. I haven't been able to find anyone who can tell me what the column headings 'O' and 'A' are for. Any help available here? Thanks.

Can anyone tell me what book Pearl The Wonder Dog dies in and how she dies. All of a sudden, they got a replacement dog, and I do not remeber Pearl dying, or how she died. --Pat

TO PAT BOTT...Message #69

Pearl The Wonder Dog was mentioned in the book "BACK-STORY". Paul and Quirk stated their sympathy's. Spenser accepted them, but didn't care to elaborate.

But if I remember, some stories back, I believe it was mentioned one time or another, Pearl had arthritis and the Parker family had to put Pearl down, for the lack of another word. But don't quote me on that.

I once got on to Robert B. Parkers site where you could contact him and find out all about him. His home page was very nice, but now I can't seem to get to it anymore. Any suggestions?

Doug Day - 06:40pm Mar 26, 2009 PST(#75 of 78)

In Sudden Mischief Chapter 42, Spenser and Hawk are sitting outside in a car waiting for Velvet to be delivered. Once he is inside with her he says that Henry Cimoli is outside waiting to drive her any place she wants to go. Am I missing something, that seems like a glaring mistake?

Tony, have you tried this:

Sorry Doug, I do not read this author. Anyone??

Robert B. Parker's last novel Sixkill was one of the most enjoyable of all his many books that I have read and I have read them ALL. It was with great sadness that I closed that book knowing it was his last...I truly feel I have lost a close and dear friend. Thank you Dr. Parker for transporting me and so many others to "Spenser's World".

Bill Ostrow - 05:31am Oct 11, 2011 PST(#78 of 78)

I am looking for a Spenser novel. What was the title of the book where Spenser is shot and almost killed, but is brought back to health by Hawk and Susan in California???
