Definitely not his best, and may be my least-liked (and possibly last) Parker novel ever.
Robert B. Parker is a must buy, must read author. This stand-alone is easy to follow but at times difficult to read due to emotions evoked. No editing errors, gratuitous violence or drag-you-down drama.
Intriguing storyline with two separate cases, a teenage rape and adult serial killers. This story shows how flawed our justice system is concerning rape. Flexible procedures, actions and reactions. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and realistic dialogue.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to works by and in Mr. Parker’s memory.
It is Stone's calmness and instincts as a cop that serve him well in investigating a series of seemingly linked killings in Paradise - something new in this small town. Though the strong, silent type, his sensitivity is evident in his handling of a sexual assault case in the local high school.
Stone has managed to get his alcohol abuse under control, but his ex-wife Jenn, a local TV personality, continues to bedevil him. He simply cannot move on without her, and this is despite his obvious appeal to other attractive and smart women.
The character of Jesse Stone is the reason to read this book, though it is mildly disappointing that the author really gives us little of his background. In addition the perpetrators of the murdering spree remain mostly a puzzle. How did they get to this point? Basically the book is a quick and enjoyable read.
