Overview

Sea Change (Jesse Stone Series #5) by Robert B. Parker

Police chief Jesse Stone faces the case of his career in this thrilling novel in the New York Times bestselling series.

When a woman's partially decomposed body washes ashore in Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone is forced into a case far more difficult than it initially appears. Identifying the woman is just the first step in what proves to be an emotionally charged investigation. Florence Horvath was an attractive, recently divorced heiress from Florida; she also had a penchant for steamy sex and was an enthusiastic participant in a video depicting the same. Somehow the combination of her past and present got her killed, but no one is talking-not the crew of the Lady Jane, the Fort Lauderdale yacht moored in Paradise Harbor; not her very blond, very tan twin sisters, Corliss and Claudia; and not her curiously affectless parents, living out a sterile retirement in a Miami high rise. But someone-Jesse-has to speak for the dead, even if it puts him in harm's way.

Parker's Jesse Stone series are highly repetitive, and if you've read one, you've read them all. The plots are similar - a crime is committed, or about to be committed, the characters are developed to some extent, and then the grand finale takes place, leaving some loose ends. The only place where the dialog strikes me as true is when some officious character is talking with Jesse Stone himself. Stone is always laconic and goes out of his way to commit career suicide. It feels to me as if Parker wrote this series with Tom Selleck's acting in mind. Hurried to the point of feeling mass-produced. Tolerable with a Corona on the beach IF the reader can't find a road atlas or an instruction manual for a DVD player.

I have come lately to Robert B Parker, and have read none of the Spencer novels, and just the first 5 Jesse Stone ones. What I have found is that the plots are often implausible and far fetched, but the characters and dialogue are first rate. So, I'll keep coming. In this one, however, the author seems to have forgotten what he wrote earlier. Jesse is "convinced" he knows whodoneit, only to find out he was wrong. Yet, he never comments on his previous "certainty" and what that means. Worse, one character in the book tells Jesse that the dead person flew on his plane to Paradise. Another character tells him she took a boat up. Mr Parker never clears up which really happened, and why one of them was lying. That nags at me!

Jesse Stone is a character that grows on you. By this book , you feel like you are a member of Paradise PD and that makes this case all the more puzzling. Tight, the dialogue is spare as always.

If you haven't read any of Robert Parker's "Jesse Stone" series, you're missing out on great series. Jesse is wonderfully portraited; his strengths, weaknesses, and a slueth of few words. Parker will have you hooked by the first paragraph in "Sea Change!"

Kept me wondering until the last couple of pages

Parker keeps you wondering what the next step will be when the Chief turns over the next Stone (no pun intended)! The relationship with his ex-wife is further explored and raises all kinds of questions about where they will ultimately end up. Great book to settle down with a cup of java!
