Overview

Stone Cold (Jesse Stone Series #4) by Robert B. Parker

Investigating a serial killer in an affluent suburban town is difficult, and dangerous, and with the added pressures from the town selectmen and the media, the heat is turned up on Jesse. He's spending too much time with the bottle-and with his ex-wife-neither of which helps him, or the case. And the harder these outside forces push against him, the more Jesse retreats into himself, convinced-despite all the odds-that it's up to him alone to stop the killing.

As tough, clear-eyed, and sardonic as Jesse Stone himself, this is the Grand Master working at the peak of his powers.

Author Biography: Robert B. Parker is the bestselling author of more than forty-one books.

The killers in this book are so chillingly frightful with no conscience. Another good book featuring Chief Jesse Stone.

Only thing I'd change so far of the 4 I've read is do away with Jen. Just when I really like the way things are going she shows up to mess up Jesse's head. Suppose that's part of the intrigue for the series. Have to see if Jesse ever smartens up and dumps her.

Love the Jesse Stone books. This is just another great example. I couldn't put it down (read it in less than two days-after work). The dry humor mixed with the suspense makes the book a real winner.

Robert Forster has the perfect voice for the Jesse Stone series. This is a good addition to the other Robert Parker audio books. I also enjoy reading his work, but listening while driving makes the road so much nicer.

You can't help liking Robert B. Parker's writing. Sparse in style, wry in dialogue, bizarre in action, you find yourself devouring each terse chapter. Jesse Stone is a believable yet unbelievable character. So methodical and practical in all areas of his life except one, you grab on to his coattails and hang on for the ride. One can feel the winter in this book while he handles two serious matters simulatenously, serial killings and revenge for a rape victim. Done with style and humor, you quit looking for motivation for the acts and instead rush to the conclusion. This book won't go down as a classic of literature, but it amply fulfills the desire for an enjoyable read.

Stone Cold is a must-read for any fans of a true crime and suspense novel. Honestly, those who read it will NOT be disappointed.

The Jesse Stone series stands by itself but can be likened to Spenser. Jesse Stone is witty, and likeable with a troubled past. He is the consumate protagonist. This series is a recommended read!

Parker is one of the few authors who not only does not run down and become repetitious, but becomes better and better. As others have said, this is the best of the Jesse Stone novels. But more than that, the book clearly demonstrates that Parker is more than a great writer of detective stories. He is, plain and simple, a great writer.
