Burt Reynolds reads three of Robert B. Parker's finest Spenser novels.
Chance - Big-time Boston hoodlum Julius Ventura wants to find his only daughter's missing husband - at least that's how he puts it to Spenser and Hawk, even though it's pretty clear Julius isn't telling the whole truth. Or maybe not any part of the truth. Something about the case appeals to Spenser's passion for justice, and he launches an odyssey into the netherworld of organized crime.
Hush Money - When Robin Nevins is denied acceptance at an exclusive university, Spenser is eager to investigate. It seems the denial is tied to the suicide of a young gay activist, and as Spenser digs deeper, he is nearly drowned in a multicultural swamp of politics: black, gay, academic, and feminist. Meanwhile, Spenser's inamorata, Susan, asks him to come to the aid of an old college friend, K.C. Roth, the victim of a stalker. Spenser solves the problem a bit too effectively when K.C. turns the tables and begins to stalk him.
Small Vices - Ellis Alves is no angel. But when his lawyer says he was framed for the murder of college student Melissa Henderson, Alves looks to Spenser for help. From Boston's back streets to Manhattan's elite, Spenser and Hawk search for suspects, including Melissa's rich-kid tennis-star boyfriend. But when a man with a .22 puts Spenser in a coma, is the chance for justice dead?
