The Boxer and the Spy

by Robert B. Parker

When a shy high school student's body is found washed up on the shore of a quiet beach town - an apparent suicide - Terry Novak doesn't know what to think. He decides to do some investigating with the help of his best friend, Abby. Before long, they learn that asking questions puts them in grave danger. Fortunately, Terry has been learning about fighting, thanks to a retired boxer, who teaches him to use his head and keep his feet set beneath him - lessons Terry takes to heart in more ways than one.

His name was Jason Green and he was dead. When a shy high school student’s body is found washed up on the shore of a quiet New England beach town–an alleged suicide linked to steroids–fifteen-year-old boxer-in-training Terry Novak isn’t quite sure what to think. Something just doesn’t add up. Artsy and withdrawn, Jason wasn’t exactly the type to be doing ’roids.

So Terry, with the help of his friend Abby, decides to do some investigating of his own. It doesn’t take long, though, before they learn that asking questions puts them in grave danger and that survival is going to be a fight.

Fortunately, Terry has learned a thing or two about fighting.

Robert B. Parker delivers a taut, empowering mystery for teen readers.
