I've read just about everything Robert B. Parker has written. I'm a huge fan of the Spenser series and I really did enjoy Chasing the Bear: A Young Spenser Novel, a look at the frequently alluded to but never before fleshed out childhood of Spenser in "West Flub-dub", somewhere out west.
Fans of the series will enjoy it. It consists of Spenser and Susan talking about Spenser's childhood (with plenty of psycho-analysis thrown in) interspersed with flashbacks to Spenser as a young man in a series of "coming-of-age" stories).

I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
