Robert B. Parker is one of my favorite writers and this Jesse Stone story is excellent. No editing errors, gratuitous violence or drag-you-down drama. There are unanswered questions.
Intriguing storyline with several subplots to keep the reader guessing. Descriptive writing that draws the reader into each scene. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and memorable dialogue. Jesse's conversations with Dix are informative, something one can relate to in everyday life.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to works in the Robert B. Parker series.
But then the heavy drinking and multiple sex partners turned me off. Seems outdated and has a very poor image of women falling into bed with a very unlikeable character. This series did not hold up over the years.
Don't look for any twists or big, unpredictable surprises. There aren't any. The novel's content is very close to it's predecessor in book #2.
Jessie stuggles with his drinking problem and Mr. Parker likes to, on a continual basis, relate Jessie's sexual conquests, washed up baseball career. and divorce. One issue he can't let go of is
ex-wife Jenn, who is in a good part of the story. The see-saw between them hasn't really changed since the previous book. Jenn's large presence in Stone novels has worn very thin. She's an annoyance.
Imagine the small town scene and cast of Paradise, MA., and keep picturing Tom Selleck in the lead roll. Selleck is perfect for the TV movies of this book series. A fast, entertaining read which just will not rock your world. Subsequent Jessie Stone novels are much better than the earlier ones.
