Robert B. Parker, mystery author and our neighbor here in Cambridge, died on Monday. His death is a loss to a wide range of readers. Parker's 60+ books include best-selling detective novels (many featuring detective Spenser) and westerns for adults, as well as middle grade sports mysteries and "Young Spenser" books. He was also a professor of literature at both B.U. and Northeastern University.
