Michael Bradman does an admirable job of mimicking the style of Robert Parker. It isn't perfect but one can't expect it to be. The book was enjoyable overall, though it did, sadly, have many shortcomings that made it from feeling like a true Jesse Stone story. There are some incredibly stereotypical characters who were much too silly to take seriously and I really felt like, despite some small victories, this book just ultimately resulted in a failure of the police force overall, which isn't what one wants to see in these sorts of books. A good read nevertheless.

Since I love the Jesse Stone character ..I really liked this book. However, I truly miss Robert Parker, without him this series is not nearly as special..Jesse is very wordy in parts, which does not fit in with the image of Jesse that Robert Parker created. By the end of the novel..it was almost back on track. I realize that it must be very difficult to follow in another authors footprints..and there may also be the compulsion to make Jesse into the character you want him to be! I do appreciate the effort to keep this story line alive..I do miss you Robert Parker!
