Publisher's Summary

When a shy high-school student's body is found washed up on the shore of a quiet New England beach town - an apparent suicide - 15-year-old Terry Novak doesn't know what to think. Something just doesn't add up, so he decides to do some investigating of his own with the help of his best friend, Abby.It doesn't take long before they learn that asking questions puts them in grave danger, and surviving is going to be a fight. Fortunately, Terry has been learning a thing or two about fighting, thanks to a retired boxer named George, who teaches the boy to use his head and always keep his feet set beneath him - lessons Terry takes to heart in more ways than one. He will need to.

great teen book

The Boxer and the Spy is currently riveting the attention of 2 "mature" adults as we are driving, but we think it would also be an excellent book for teens. We love all of Robert B. Parker's books for the quality of the prose as well as enticing story lines.

Good book for Teens+

I would NOT recommend this for grade 3-5 like audible says. Lots of talk of gays, the word sex and sexual innuendo, and steroids. I started listening with my 3rd grader and quickly stopped. But I'm enjoying the story as I listen by myself.
