Young Spenser is tough. No doubt about it. After all, he's being raised by his father and uncles--three of the toughest men in town. He knows how to fight, and he's had to prove it. But his father taught him something far more valuable: Sometimes the toughest thing a guy can do is walk away from a fight. So when Spenser sees his friend Jeannie being taken in a boat downriver by her abusive father, he knows he has a hard decision to make. Should he trust his gut and risk his own life to save Jeannie's? And if so, how can he overcome such a bear of a man? Robert B. Parker's bestselling Spenser novels are a worldwide phenomenon. Now, for the first time, he gives us a glimpse into the formative years of his most iconic character. Chasing the Bear is a suspenseful thriller sure to satisfy Parker's growing legion of fans.
