Nope. It's out west a ways. When I lived in Mass., which was a while ago, it was the second or third
(third, I think) largest city in New England. I'm sure Boston is the largest, and suspect the Providence is second. I'm not sure what's happened demographically since 1986, though.

Parker's PALE KINGS AND PRINCES, recently mentioned here as a non-Boston Spenser (and not-so-recently mentioned here as a RED HARVEST knock-off), takes place in this part of Mass. His client, if I recall correctly, works for the Worcester paper.
