Robert B. Parker is a must buy, must read and re-read author.
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.
