I'm a little late to the party, only now reading the Jesse Stone series from first to last. Thoroughly enjoyed the original Robt B Parker books ... quick, brisk, snappy dialogue and well-crafted stories. Brandman captured the dialogue in his few books, but wasn't nearly the story teller. Coleman swings the other direction; while he crafts an intricate story (and uses a million words in the process), everything about the dialogue is off and out-of-character. If I were picking up this book 'cold', unburdened by the prior versions against which to compare, I'd probably like it just fine. As a continuation of the series, however, I admit to being disappointed ... not what I would have chosen to see happen to the 'brand'.
It's like the Robert Parker franchise is for the airport lounge people.
Throw on "ROBERT PARKER'S" and people pick it up.
I'm sorry I did not enjoy this one and felt it was a waste of time.
Coleman is a very good writer. If you like Lee Child's Jack Reacher, you will like anything this guy writes. I actually think he is better than the original Parker work
Jesse Stone struggles with his demons while trying to solve connected murders 25 yrs apart. Paradise - even Molly - is trying to forget it all ever happened. A very good continuation of Parker's work.
I do not like this writers style at writing a Jesse Stone book.
Except for the insertion of familiar key people, the book was not very interesting, with a lot of filler, and too much dialog .
When I first heard that Robert B. Parker had died, I was very sad. Then I was sad a second time when I realized I would not be able to read about his characters any more. Many thanks to the authors who have stepped up to continue writing about the characters I love. I have read all of Mr. Parker's novels.
