Summary
In a tale that reintroduces the character of runaway prostitute April Kyle, a poised adult April, now the head of an upscale Boston call-girl operation, requests private investigator Spenser's help in preventing a local kingpin from seizing control of her enterprise. Simultaneous.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Once upon a time, though not so long ago, there was a girl named April Kyle–a beautiful teenage runaway who turned to prostitution to escape her terrible family life. Now, April Kyle’s return in Hundred-Dollar Baby is nothing short of shocking.
When a mature, beautiful, and composed woman strides into Spenser’s office, the Boston PI barely hesitates before recognizing his once and future client. Now a well-established madam herself, April is still looking for Spenser’s approval, and it takes her a moment before she can ask him for his assistance.
April claims to be in the dark about who is trying to shake her and her business down, but Spenser and Hawk find ties to organized crime and local kingpin Tony Marcus, as well as a scheme to franchise her operation across the country. As Spenser again plays the gallant knight, it becomes clear that April’s not as innocent as she seems. In fact, she may be her own worst enemy.
