Always loved Robert Parker books - especially his Spenser novels. But, if you can believe it, Jessie Stone, the hero of his latest series is even better - just as gifted an investigator ( although Jessie, unlike Spenser, is still a cop ) but much more flawed - and likeable. He has a drinking problem, a lovelife problem, no Hawk to back him up - but he still manages to solve the case while commenting on the foibles and fantasies of his very mixed-up life and that of those around him. Five stars and I hope for a lot more of Jessie Stone!

As with all of Robert Parker's books, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Parker has a mastery for writing convincing dialogue. I didn't have any problem with his use of "he said" or "she said" as other listeners have.
I love Parker's writing; he doesn't pad his books with needless prose, his character development is excellent, and his plots are great. Stone's a well-developed, tragic guy with lots of problems. Reminds me of some people I know.
