My husband and I got hooked on the Jesse Stone stories after watching Tom Selleck in this role in several made-for-TV movies. This is the first one we have read (actually, listened to). I liked the mystery part, but had a big problem with the audio book. After a few minutes of listening to "Jesse said," "Molly said," "Jesse said," "Suitcase said," "Harry said," we were both ready to scream. I guess that's Parker's style, but it is extremely distracting in audio. We won't listen to any more of these audios by Parker.

My other problem with the book was there was too much "angst." Jesse's ex-wife has a problem with a rapist/stalker, and much of the book is taken up listening to her whine (after she waited 4 days to ask for Jesse's help). There's always a big question about whether she's lying, just looking for attention. And Jesse's current girlfriend gets involved in trying to help the ex-wife. Way too much soap opera for a mystery book.

The Selleck movies, by the way, have some of this soap opera, but it's kept more to a minimum. In every movie, Jesse gets a call from his ex-wife or he's brooding about his ex-wife, drinking, etc. We'll wait for the next movie instead of reading more of the books.
