I read them in order now when filling in the blanks. (because I can)

My point was that they can be read in any order if the first is not available or affordable and that any Spenser novel should give you a good idea as to the rest.

You are more observant than I am in the character development area. Over the 37 years of the series the main characters did not change much IMO. Some minor characters changed a bit, and circumstances changed, but overall I don't see much in depth development.

Maybe that is something I love about Robert B. Parker, you pretty well know what you are going to get.
