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.

    A quick and pleasant read

    High profile opens with the body of a man found riled with bullet holes and hung from a tree in the small town of Paradise Massachusetts. When the body is identified as famous talk-show host Walton Weeks, police chief Jesse Stone and his team work to find the killer. They soon discover his young pregnant lover, murdered in the same fashion and thrown into a dumpster, sending the police into a more complex and wild plot. This high profile crime becomes engrossed with media attention and political pressure leading to a long list of colorful characters and suspects. While the mystery of the crime remains weaved throughout the novel, the focus is more on the relationships between Jesse, his ex-wife Jenn and current girlfriend Sunny. The strong emotional conflicts and drinking scenes seem to drag on and ultimately fill up space on the pages. The quirky dialogue and personality of the characters is interesting and fun often providing some laugh out loud moments. The mystery in itself is intriguing providing some great scenes and twists to the plot along the way however, the ending is too predictable and lacks the luster it needed. Overall, High Profile simply a quick and pleasant read. Valerie Jones

    Time to Move On

    It has been my privilege to read all of Mr. Parker's novels. However, I'm through. I purchased/read his latest novel 'High Profile' and I have nothing, but a sense of embarrassment for Mr. Parker. He has obviously encompassed into his writings his personal life and his inability to move on with his life concerning his personal relationship with Joan. Hey, time to move on or stop writing.
