Book Review: 'Perish Twice'
In Robert B. Parker’s second Sunny Randall novel Perish Twice, the distaff Boston detective perfects the art of multitasking, protecting a lesbian feminist activist from a stalker while dealing with the dissolutions of her stuck-up sister Elizabeth’s and bosom pal Julie’s marriages. Plus, she still finds the time to sleep with her Mob-connected ex-husband, Richie. The stalking case soon leads to multiple murders, and Perish comes to life as Parker’s most tightly plotted mystery in years. B+
