Heidi Bradshaw is wealthy, beautiful, and well connected. She's also a notorious gold digger only recently separated from her latest husband - and she's just hired Spenser as a stand-in spouse for her daughter's wedding. It's not his usual kind of assignment, but Spenser has no reservations about accepting, especially after ensuring that his beloved Susan Silverman is also on the guest list. It should be a straightforward job: look after the mother of the bride, enjoy a few drinks and most importantly, spend some quality time with Susan. But then Spenser's old nemesis Rugar - the Gray Man - arrives. A storm, a kidnapping, and a series of murders tear apart what should be a joyous occasion, and Rugar is seemingly at the centre of it all. The only thing is that the perpetrator's apparent sloppiness is not Rugar's style, as Spenser knows from past encounters. With six dead bodies and more questions than he can handle, Spenser begins a search for answers - and the Gray Man.

Commentators have noted the extraordinary impact of popular culture on legal practice, courtroom proceedings, police departments, and government as a whole, and it is no exaggeration to say that most people derive their basic understanding of law from cultural products. Movies, television programs, fiction, children’s literature, online games, and the mass media typically influence attitudes and impressions regarding law and legal institutions more than law and legal institutions themselves. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives enhances the appreciation of the interaction between popular culture and law by underscoring this interaction’s multinational and international features. Two dozen authors from nine countries invite readers to consider the role of law-related popular culture in a broad range of nations, socio-political contexts, and educational environments. Even more importantly, selected contributors explore the global transmission and reception of law-related cultural products and, in particular, the influence of assorted works and media across national borders and cultural boundaries. The circulation and consumption of law-related popular culture are increasing as channels of mass media become more complex and as globalization runs its uncertain course. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives adds to the critical understanding of the worldwide interaction of popular culture and law and encourages reflection on the wider implications of this mutual influence across both time and geography.
