This stand-alone is easy to follow and difficult to put down. No editing errors, gratuitous violence or drag-you-down drama. There are formatting issues.
Intriguing storyline with several suspects. Mr. Parker's descriptive, almost lyrical writing draws the reader into each scene. Realistic procedures, actions and reactions. The camaraderie of the Paradise Police Department is always realistic. Procedures, actions, reactions and politics are true to life. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking, memorable and occasionally snarky dialogue.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to works in this series.
In his personal life, Jesse has become quite annoying, as has this novel. It's completely predictable and can be read in a sitting. His personal life with women, including his ex-wife, is bizarre. He's completely hung up on his ex, Jenn, he just cannot move on, despite her trampling all over him. This installment is particularly ridiculous, being he has one of his current squeezes looking after Jenn after claiming she was raped. What two women, as compatible as oil & water, would enter such an arrangement? None.
Jesse also has quite a drinking problem. It got him fired from the LAPD in the first place. He refuses, despite a therapist, to confront it and keeps toying with the booze, trying to contol it. On again/off again.
The murders and neer-do-wells take a backseat in this book to his pretty ridiculous personal life, including the well treadbare character, Jenn, who became annoying sometime back.
I like the latter Stone novels from the late Mr. Parker. The earlier ones just do not cut it. This one is #6 in the series. Do yourself a favor and take a pass on it.
