The woman on the bed was barely out of her teens. She wasn't exactly beautiful, but she'd tried to make the most of her looks. And now, alone in a seedy beachfront motel, she was dead.
Paradise Police Chief Jesse Stone doesn't know her name. Whoever she is, she didn't deserve to die. Jesse starts digging, only to find himself caught in the crosshairs of a bitter turf war between two ruthless pimps. And more blood will spill before it's over.

Not bad; but not Parker.

Robert B. Parker Jesse Stone series continued by Michael Brandman is beginning to slip. The first two Jesse Stone mysteries done by Brandman were close in spirit to the Parker series. He did turn deputy Molly Grant into Charlie Sheen's housekeeper in Two and a Half Men; but in general kept Jesse's humanity intact. This selection did so as well. Unfortunately the works have become pretty formulaic as well as quite short in duration.
I still find a great deal to recommend in the continuing Jesse Stone series. They are pleasant listens as well as affirmations in the morality of treating people as you would wish to be treated. A Chief of Police who encounters and takes down bullies of all stripes is a nice read for those of us who feel strongly about the current culture rife with so many different types of bullying. I continue to recommend the Jesse Stone series. Even if not as enthusiastically as I did when Robert Parker was the writer.

Would you listen to Robert B. Parker's Damned If You Do again? Why?

Yes, it's a good story. Michael Brandman captured the true Jesse Stone, who I believe was Parker's best character.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The story unfolds like an onion. Danger ramps up as it moves along.

What does James Naughton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice makes Jesse Stone come to life - the mid-west/California sound. Naughton does an excellent job with the New England accents as well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Jesse Stone and Molly - they crack me up.
