    Please, PLEASE, P-L-E-A-S-E don’t let the Quinn Colson series die now that your talent is beautifully, seamlessly keeping Robert B. Parker’s characters alive.
    I’m a Southerner and former AP reporterwho lived in Mississippi AND Boston in the 60’s and intimately enjoy how you have captured the colorful nuances of both cultures. PLEASE keep Quinn around!
