Chasing the Bear

Chasing the Bear - Robert B. Parker A short but fun, enjoyable read, especially having just finished all of Parker's Spenser novels recently. The structure is a series of flashback chapters to Spenser's boyhood, with interleaved chapters where Susan is prompting the adult Spenser to tell her more of his upbringing and how it made him the adult she knows.
