Publisher Description

A special gift for the holiday season—a rumination on Christmas as conceived by Robert B. Parker.

“Brann does a seamless job…Diehard Parker fans will be delighted.” —Publishers Weekly


It’s December in Boston, and Spenser is busy planning the menu for Christmas dinner when he’s confronted in his office by a young boy named Slide. Homeless and alone, Slide has found refuge with an organization named Street Business, which gives shelter and seeks job opportunities for the homeless and lost.

Slide’s mentor, Jackie Alvarez, is being threatened, and Street Business is in danger of losing its tenuous foothold in the community, turning Slide and many others like him back on the street. But it’s not a simple case of intimidation—Spenser, aided by Hawk, finds a trail that leads to a dangerous drug kingpin, whose hold on the at-risk community Street Business serves threatens not just the boys’ safety and security, but their lives as well. 

Unfinished at the time of his death, Silent Night was completed by Parker’s longtime agent, whose decades-long association with Parker’s work gives her unique insight and perspective to his voice and storytelling style. Her contribution also speaks volumes about their enduring friendship.

Original

I believe I have read each of Robert Parker's books. This was not a disappointment. The hearts of each character remained true and yet... It's nice to know that Mr Parker was an original. My deepest sympathies to those who miss the man and those who miss the author.

Silent Night

Don't bother.

It's not a RBP novel. It's a Helen Brann novel. It certainly wasn't Spenser or Hawk.

Thanks for trying Ms. Brann.

Weak attempt failed

Awful. Implausible storyline. Inconsistencies in storyline. Sophomoric errors in time and place. Sad. Don't bother.
