The body in the trunk was just the beginning.
Turns out the stiff was a foot soldier for local tough guy Reggie Galen, now enjoying a comfortable "retirement" with his beautiful wife, Rebecca, in the nicest part of Paradise. Living next door are Knocko Moynihan and his wife, Robbie, who also happens to be Rebecca's twin. But what initially appears to be a low-level mob hit takes on new meaning when a high-ranking crime figure is found dead on Paradise Beach.
Stressed by the case, his failed relationship with his ex-wife, and his ongoing battle with the bottle, Jesse needs something to keep him from spinning out of control. When private investigator Sunny Randall comes into town on a case, she asks for Jesse's help. As their professional and personal relationships become intertwined, both Jesse and Sunny realize that they have much in common with both their victims and their suspects - and with each other.

Identical twins are instrumental to the plot of this novel. They are both married to a crime boss - one boss "owns" North Boston and the other "owns" South Boston.
One favorite trick of the beautiful twins is to change identities with their boyfriends - no one can tell.
This novel makes a fast, easy and and fun read.
But he and his successors have wrecked some fine thrillers with progressively more and more of this drivel. It now seems to be padding and takes up half the book. I'm fed up with it. It's like having James Bond want to know everyone's star sign.

'"I need to get it organised in my own head," Jesse said. "Is sexual intercourse acceptable in the meantime?"
'"It is," Sunny said.
'"Oh, good," Jesse said."
'Sunny stood up and smiled at him. "Enough with the love talk," she said. "Off with the clothes."'
That could just as readily have featured Spenser and Susan Silverman, which seems a pity.
Still, those of us whose devotion to Parker goes back decades are sadly aware that the posthumous titles are drying up; we will take Split Image for what it is. And that in itself isn't easy to define. Jesse and Sunny are engaged in two separate story lines; the couple belong together in this book because both are emerging from divorce and looking at the possibility of life together. Meanwhile, they are separately consulting their shrinks - Susan, indeed, is talking to Dr Silverman. As if one spill-over from Spenserdom isn't enough, Rita Fiore makes an appearance.
Newcomers to Parker would do well to go back to the beginning and work through the complete oeuvre; by the time they get to Split Image for a second time they will have joined the rest of us whose critical faculties were suspended long ago. This one is flawed undeniably but only by the late author's own remarkable standards.
I have now read them all and wish there were more but alas Mr Parker has died. I am now going on to read everything else he has written.
Must add that I watched all the Jesse Stone TV shows and they were good too but different to the books in that the books leave more to the imagination. Great stuff!
