RIP, Robert B. Parker
Robert B. Parker, famous novelist, died yesterday at his home in Massachusetts. He apparently suffered a heart attack while sitting at his desk, working on his latest manuscript.
I've enjoyed those of his novels that I've read, and I plan on reading them all as and when time and money permit. He had a gift for writing realistically, not straining the plot or his readers' credulity, but keeping their attention and interest. Writers like that are relatively few and far between.
May he rest in peace.
