In 1999, Robert B. Parker introduced his readers to Sunny Randall, a Boston-based private eye who is as beautiful as she is smart, in Family Honor.
Following Family Honor, Parker went on to release five more Sunny novels before passing away in 2010. His last book in this series, Spare Change, was released in 2007. Since his passing, Parker’s estate has commissioned veteran authors such as Ace Atkins (Spenser), Reed Ferrel Coleman (Jesse Stone), and Robert Knott (Virgil and Everett) to keep his other bestselling franchises going. Together, they’ve sold over a million copies of books from Parker’s universe in the last decade.
With Spenser, Stone, plus Virgil and Everett going strong, readers have long wondered what might come of Parker’s only female protagonist. . .
For years, especially on social media where a poll was placed on Robert B. Parker’s official page, fans have asked, wondered, and expressed their desire for Sunny to return. Now, ten years since Parker’s last Randall book hit store shelves, established sports novelist Mike Lupica, who was also a long-time friend of Parker, is set to continue Sunny’s story in Robert B. Parker’s Blood Feud. Check out the cover art and plot details below!
Robert B. Parker’s iconic and irresistible PI Sunny Randall is back, and the stakes are higher than ever as she races to protect her ex-husband–and his mafia family–from the vengeful plan of a mysterious rival.
Sunny Randall is “on” again with Richie, the ex-husband she never stopped loving and never seemed to be able to let go, despite her discomfort with his mafia connections. When Richie is shot and nearly killed, Sunny is dragged into the thick of his family’s business as she searches for answers and tries to stave off a mob war. But as the bullets start flying in Boston’s mean streets, Sunny finds herself targeted by the deranged mastermind of the plot against the Burke family, whose motive may be far more personal than she could have anticipated . . .
Robert B. Parker was the author of seventy books, including the legendary Spenser detective series, the novels featuring police chief Jesse Stone, and the acclaimed Virgil Cole-Everett Hitch westerns, as well as the Sunny Randall novels. Winner of the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award and long considered the undisputed dean of American crime fiction, he died in January 2010.
