Publisher's Summary

Hi Phil,
You miss me? I got bored, so I thought I'd reestablish our relationship. Give us both something to do in our later years. Stay tuned.
-Spare Change
When a serial murderer dubbed "The Spare Change Killer" by the Boston press surfaces after three decades in hiding, the police immediately seek out the cop, now retired, who headed the original task force: Phil Randall. As a sharp-eyed investigator and a doting parent, Phil calls on his daughter, Sunny, to help catch the criminal who eluded him so many years before. When the killer strikes a second and third time, the murders take a macabre turn, as the victims each eerily resemble Sunny. While her father pressures her to drop the case, Sunny's need to create a trap to nab her killer grows. In a compelling game of cat-and-mouse, Sunny uses all her skills to draw out her prey, realizing too late that she's setting herself up to become the next victim.

Too many saids

I enjoy reading Robert B. Parker books, but when they're read to me as audiobooks they become really annoying. It's one "he said," "she said," "I said" after another -- I've concluded that every fifth word, or so, must be SAID. After listening to several Parker audiobooks I'm convinced the printed books would be half as thick if the SAIDs were left out. Here's where a little abridgement would be welcome -- just leave out 50%-60% of the SAIDs, and let the reader (with voice changes) show who's doing the saying.
