Crisp, Interesting, and Speedy Read

The main character, Jesse Stone, is a believable fallen hero. I loved the witty and concise dialogue and the mixture of suspense and romance. This book is well written despite it being such an easy read. I recommend this if you are looking for relaxed entertainment.

    Not my favorite but a quick read....

    Those of you who have read other reviews know that I stumbled upon an old tupperware tub in my house filled with old books belonging to myself and my husband. I have since read a few of Robert Parker's novels, and again, this is my first read of NIGHT PASSAGE.

    Coming from Massachusetts, I love taking quick trips back home through Robert Parker's characters. And when I only have time for a few chapters, his writing works for me.

    The problem with this book is that I expected more. I think that I have read enough of Mr. Parker to begin to favor some books over others. Some reviewers have said that they were sick of listening to ex-spouses express their undying love for each other while on the telephone at night, sharing a drink. I tend to agree. That became old rather quickly. I too, wish Mr. Parker had spent more time putting more detail in what could have been an even greater detective book. I would have understood more if this was the first book he had written, but I felt that he penned it rather quickly and sent it along for publication without giving it much thought.

    That said, I read this book in about 3 days and did enjoy it as a fluffy, fast paced, short chapter read.

    Parker At His Best

    As a big fan of the Spenser novels, Night Passage is Robert Parker at his best. The character of Jesse Stone is complicated and conflicted and the story line makes you want to continue reading to its conclusion and then will make you want to read more. Night Passage is the first of the Jesse Stone Series and after reading it, I've since purchased and read all of Parker's Jesse Stone Series books. They are quick reads, entertaining and fun to read.

    Good writing

    255 pages I enjoyed the story and will read more of the series. It helps to have seen some of the tv shows so you have face with the name. Tom Selleck plays him well. Good mystery.
