Two changes Parker made adversely affected the book. One change was bringing Sunny Randall into the story, a character from another set of Parker books. She and Jesse spend way too much time whining about their relationship issues. Alone, it's bearable, together unbearable. As a result, there is not enough of that Jesse Stone dry wit that made the other books so much fun. The other change was a lack of actual investigation of the crime, sadly because of all the time spent whining.

In short, an OK read when plans go awry, but don't set aside a special time just for this book.

    DONE !!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is it for me. I've read them all so far and they keep getting worse. Silly dialog, almost laughable interaction. It really is time to do something else Mr.Parker. It's been a great ride. I would give a half star if possible.

    high school freshman work

    Very disappointing, sad, simple, and shallow quality of writing. If it wasn't Parker's name on the book, it probably wouldn't have been published. As a former admirer of early Parker (and Spencer books), I feel he went Hollywood a long time ago. He cranks out books with plots that lack depth or thought. Was this book written in one weekend? This particular book is evidence that it might be time to put down the pen, for Parker lacks the work ethic required to demonstrate writing other than high school work.

    Sure glad I bought this book used!!

    Enough of the 'I can't live without her/him. Mr. Parker has been a great story teller, but he needs to get back to real life. Combining the two charcters Sony and Jessie, the two 'I think I love you, but can't give up the ex spouse'. Jessie has a spouse who sleeps with anyone to get ahead in her profession, and Sony has an ex spouse that has remarried and is having a baby with his new wife. Then add the fact that Jessie sends Sony to guard his ex, way beyond belief. Way past time to move on Mr. Parker. Find another author until Mr. Parker writes about real life !Don't new spousewaste your money !!

    A reviewer

    Having read every Spenser, Jesse Stone, and Sunny Randall novel I had high hopes for this latest effort. The beginning was very good as it appeared Jesse would be tackling a double homicide. However, as with recent Parker tomes his inability to write female characters is evident. Stone's ex-wife Jenn is the most horrific character in detective fiction. This is quite a remarkable statement when one considers that another of his creations, Susan Silverman, had held this dubious distinction for so many years. Jenn takes over the book and the readers lose out big time. If Parker must continue writing he should change direction and get back to the snappy dialogue of his early works as well as concentrate on plot instead of trying to weave in every character he's used in the past. This is very tired and lazy writing indeed.

    Maybe it's time..

    ..for Robert Parker to retire. The last few, of each character, have been disappointing to put it mildly. What has happened ? Crais and Lehane have passed you by. Too much Susan, Richie and Jenn. Not enough sharp,witty dialogue. Sorry !!!

    A real stinker

    I'm not sure how this could be considered writing. Not only was this story boring, it read like a soap opera. This was just sad.

    YUK!

    I've read all his books and enjoyed some alot more than others but this was so expected and much more depressing. What's the deal? If Stone is really this smart, strong, tough yet 'troubled guy' Parker writes him to be.... Would he really sink so low as to continue the sick ex wife relationship? Not going on with this guy, ex wife sleeps with like EVERYONE but, he still wants to reconcile? YUCK!
