General Note:
Sequel to: Robert B. Parker's Payback.
Summary, etc.:
Robert B. Parker's PI Sunny Randall's newest case hits close to home in ways she never expected in her latest thrilling investigation. Melanie Joan Hall is back in Boston, riding high, refusing to have Sunny and Rosie move out. She has a Netflix series about to start shooting in Boston, based on her wildly popular new series of books for girls. Then it turns out that most of her fortune is gone. And her manager, who was in charge of the money, turns up dead. He's been with her a long time. When Sunny begins to investigate, she discovers that a lot of Melanie Joan's past is a product of her amazing imagination. And then Sunny's loyalty to her old friend is challenged by her loyalty to finding out the truth.

    Lupica's fourth effort at the helm of the late Robert B. Parker's Sunny Randall series finds the Boston PI reconnecting with one of her most annoying clients, best-selling romance author and world-class diva Melanie Joan Hall (Shrink Wrap, 2002). This time Melanie is being stalked by someone who claims to have evidence that the writer's first novel was actually written by another person. Soon the stalker has progressed from sending Sunny chapters of the plagiarized manuscript to attempted murder. And the life of Sunny's father, retired Boston cop Phil, may also be at risk. Clearly, Sunny needs help protecting everyone that needs protecting—time to call in some of the old gang, including Sunny's pal Spike, restaurateur and gay man about town, and the dapper and deadly Hawk, costar of Parker's Spenser series (Spenser makes a cameo, too, as does his significant other and Sunny's therapist, Susan Silverman). The plot unwinds with some dexterous dipsy-doodles along the way, but the real treat here is the bringing together of so many members of Parker's extended family of fast-talking, right-cross-throwing scene stealers.
