Small Vices

by Robert B. Parker

The bad kid from the 'hood has a long record, but did he really murder the white coed from ritzy Pemberton College? His former lawyers believe he was framed, and they hire Spenser and Hawk to uncover the truth.

Ellis Alves is no angel. But his lawyer says he was framed for the murder of college student Melissa Henderson...and asks Spenser for help.

From Boston's back streets to Manhattan's elite, Spenser and Hawk search for suspects, including Melissa's rich-kid, tennis-star boyfriend. But when a man with a .22 puts Spenser in a coma, the hope for justice may die with him...
