I don't want to encourage the continued ill use of Parker's name and characters. This is a screen play and will likely be ok for Tom Select to use.

Captures the rhythm growth of relationships in Paradise. Its BETTER than RBP's Jesse!

Michael Bradman does an admirable job of mimicking the style of Robert Parker. It isn't perfect but one can't expect it to be. The book was enjoyable overall, though it did, sadly, have many shortcomings that made it from feeling like a true Jesse Stone story. There are some incredibly stereotypical characters who were much too silly to take seriously and I really felt like, despite some small victories, this book just ultimately resulted in a failure of the police force overall, which isn't what one wants to see in these sorts of books. A good read nevertheless.

A fast one or two night read.
Jesse stone is no SPENSER,
but maybe its just Tom Selleck
does not match the character.
Robert B. Parker, along with all of his
character are realty missed.

Mindless and totally predictable.

This is an easy, quick, mindless, totally predictable, fun read. It would fit easily into a tv format; watch for it.

Since I love the Jesse Stone character ..I really liked this book. However, I truly miss Robert Parker, without him this series is not nearly as special..Jesse is very wordy in parts, which does not fit in with the image of Jesse that Robert Parker created. By the end of the was almost back on track. I realize that it must be very difficult to follow in another authors footprints..and there may also be the compulsion to make Jesse into the character you want him to be! I do appreciate the effort to keep this story line alive..I do miss you Robert Parker!
