I have enjoyed Parker's Spenser books for many, many years. I was surprised when he developed a new character but wanted to give it try. Although the Spenser series will always be a favorite, Jesse Stone is a brand new direction for Parker.
This is nowhere close to the enjoyable read of the Spenser novels, but still has its own charm. I have now read all of the Stone series books and they are good.
However, the one thing this series misses is a "Hawk" character but Parker's style is just as consistent.
Welton Weeks, famous talk show host & his pregnant girlfriend are slain in Paradise. Jesse Stone throws the dragnet for the killer, while under intense national scrutiny. Jesse's insights and soliloquy's on love are worth the trip. Parker has it goin'.
In High Profile, Robert B. Parker takes to visit, once again, Police Chief Jesse Stone.
The character of Stone is an enjoyable one, with all his warts and fallacies, but I would offer only this caveat, Mr. Parker (or Dr. Parker?)seems to be exhibiting the same human foible that many of us older people are guilty of, ie trying to fit more in a given amount of time than is possible, if one is also is attempting to maintain a high standard of excellence. Of course, it is easier to critisize than to write. Overall this is a good book and one I'm glad I read , but not a great book, as many of Mr. Parkers earlier efforts were.Perhaps we (the readers) have come to expect an unmaintainable standard of excellence.
