    I’m still working on the serie(s) but the first Alan Grofield book The Damsel, where Grofield is saved by a damsel in distress, begins where The Handle ends.

    I’m on book 2 of the Parker series. I want to read everything in order including the Alan Grofield books but don’t know where to insert the 4 Grofield books. Any suggestions?

      Just a case of following the publication order I think would be best.

      So I think it would be:

      – The Score
      – The Handle
      – The Damsel
      – The Dame
      – The Blackbird
      – Lemons Never Lie
      – Slayground
      – Butcher’s Moon
