Heard just about all the Spenser books so decided to give a listen to Parker's new hero - Jessie Stone. Turned out to be a great choice. Stone has all of Spenser's knowhow but is a lot more flawed - and more human. Very easy to identify with. The mystery was also excellent and had me guessing to the end.

Love Robert B. Parker, love his books, and especially love his Jesse Stone character who is a good solid man's man, tells it like it is. This is a good "read", light on the mystery but the reason for my two star rating is the constant, annoying "Jesse said" and "she said" which got under my skin. Driving 150 miles somewhere this week? This is the right book, nothing too complicated, few characters to keep up with, and the ending is rather predictable.

The story is ok, though it's the usual Jesses sleeps with any woman with a pulse. The worst thing about it is the narration.
Robert Forster reads this with such contempt and monotone that it really ruins the story.
Do yourself a favour, read the book instead. Waste of a credit. Not Audibles fault, just Forster is as appalling a narrator as David Dukes.
