Painted Ladies by Robert B. Parker
This mystery involving the art world takes Spenser down some unexpected paths. In a change from recent books, there's actually more mystery involved in this book by Parker. It's a treat to watch Spenser work a puzzling case. But, as always, the greatest treat is spending time in Spenser's world, with Susan and Pearl, and the cops who respect his ability. Spenser is the detective who recognizes and can recite poetry, appreciates attractive women, but always remains faithful. It's going to be tough to finally lose mystery's knight in shining armor, the detective with a code of honor.
