Overview

High Profile (Jesse Stone Series #6) by Robert B. Parker

When the body of controversial talk-show host Walton Weeks is discovered hanging from a tree on the outskirts of Paradise, police chief Jesse Stone finds himself at the center of a highly public case. When another dead body–that of a young woman–is discovered just a few days later, the pressure to solve the crimes becomes almost unbearable.
Two victims in less than a week should provide a host of clues, but all Jesse runs into are dead ends. Yet what may be the most disturbing aspect of these murders is the fact that no one seems to care–not a single one of Weeks’s ex-wives, not the family of the girl. And when the medical examiner reveals a heartbreaking link between the two departed souls, the mystery only deepens. Forced to delve into a world of stormy relationships, Jesse soon comes to realize that knowing whom to trust is indeed a matter of life and death.

Written in the typical Jesse Stone series style. The attitude of the characters is unusual and is unique to any other books I've ever read. Robert Parker truly knows how to capture your attention with this small town police force. I am a true Jesse Stone fan, in books and movies.

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.

I have enjoyed all the Jesse Stone mysteries and this one is no exception. For fans of the TV series you won't be disappointed. The books are even better than the shows though Tom Selleck plays a great Jesse Stone.

Have been reading Robert Parker novels for years...recently have been concentrating more on Clive Cussler...but hsi novels are always fun to read and I look forward to replacing more of my paper bound volumns with his E-books.

I have read other books by Mr. Parker and and thought the story sounded interesting, but I really had to force myself to finish it. What really annoyed me most about this book was the dialogue between the characters (which is mainly what this story is made up of, not a lot of setting up scenes or descriptions in this one). The dialogue seemed so forced and unnatural. It was as if Mr. Parker was challenging himself to see how many "witty" remarks and sexual innuendos he could fit in the book. Very annoying. This story was also so predictable! I had it figured out very early on. Unfortunately, this book may have turned me off from ever reading anymore of his books. Don't waste your time with this one.

I've watched a number of Jesse Stone movies and loved them. I had never read one until a friend loaned me this one. If I had seen it in a movie I would not have read the book. I want the book first and then the movie. I did enjoy this.
