Publisher's Summary

It’s been a long time since Jesse Stone left L.A., and still longer since the tragic injury that ruined his chances for a major league baseball career. When Jesse is invited to a reunion of his old Triple-A team at a hip New York City hotel, he is forced to grapple with his memories and regrets over what might have been.
Jesse left more behind him than unresolved feelings about the play that ended his baseball career. The darkly sensuous Kayla, his former girlfriend and current wife of an old teammate is there in New York, too. As is Kayla’s friend, Dee, an otherworldly beauty with secret regrets of her own. But Jesse’s time at the reunion is cut short when, in Paradise, a young woman is found murdered and her boyfriend, a son of one of the town’s most prominent families, is missing and presumed kidnapped.
Though seemingly coincidental, there is a connection between the reunion and the crimes back in Paradise. As Jesse, Molly, and Suit hunt for the killer and for the missing son, it becomes clear that one of Jesse’s old teammates is intimately involved in the crimes. That there are deadly forces working below the surface and just beyond the edge of their vision. Sometimes, that’s where the danger comes from, and where real evil lurks. Not out in the light - but in your blind spot.

Jesse Stone is Back--Properly

If you could sum up Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot in three words, what would they be?

Just Like Parker

What was one of the most memorable moments of Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot?

When you find out Dee is more than she appears to be.....complete surprise

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

Great use of New England accents from Southie to Patrician

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Better than before

Any additional comments?

Far more developed story line and characters by Coleman than Brandman. Brandman's work smacks of Stuart Woods--hurry up and tell the story and pretend it is the same. Look forward to more Jesse from Coleman....as good as Ace Atkins is with Spenser.

So GOOD! Great Tribute to Dr. Parker

I was so worried when the estate began announcing various writers picking up Dr. Parker's series. So far, every one has been worthy. This is no exception. It's a bit different than some of the others in that it is longer but that's a bonus here. The best compliment I can think of is that I can't tell someone else wrote it. Naughton is perfect as Jesse and overall and as with Ace Atkins on the Spenser series I am now going to see if Reed Farrel Coleman has a back catalog. If you miss Robert B. This will make you feel better.

The last 30 secs are 'to be continued'

What was most disappointing about Reed Farrel Coleman and Robert B. Parker (Created by) ’s story?

I really enjoy the Jesse Stone novels by Robert B Parker, the new novels by Michael Brandman were written in Parker's style and are also fabulous. Unfortunately Reed Farrel Coleman uses the characters but not in the style of Robert B Parker. This is a big disappointment. This Jesse Stone is not the same Jesse Stone as portrayed in the books by Robert B Parker and Michael Brandman. In addition, the story has some sadistic parts which stick in the memory unpleasantly, something which is absent from the works of Robert B Parker (and from both Michael Brandman and Ace Atkins). Very disappointed.

In addition, this is actually the first novel of a multipart story, the last 30 seconds of the audio recording are the equivalent of the "to be continued ..." screen on a TV show. This is also very different to the Robert B Parker novels which are all self-contained stories.

Have you listened to any of James Naughton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Nothing wrong with the narrator, in fact, the narration was really good, it's the content that is the problem.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment because the Jesse Stone novels by Robert B Parker and Michael Brandman are very good, and this one is very different, I feel a cheated. I am also a bit upset that this novel leaves unpleasant gruesome images in my memory which I did not want. I liked the previous novels because they are subtle and character-based, psychological thrillers without the need for horrific or gruesome detail descriptions.

Any additional comments?

I just wish that Michael Brandman had continued to write the Jesse Stone sequels.

Not Up To Parker's Usual Standard

Sadly when the world lost Robert B Parker, his talent died with him. I loved the Jesse Stone stories, but Coleman's interpretation lacks the finesse that we are so used to. Too much sex, too much drinking and sacrilegious to suggest getting rid of the Ozzie Smith picture!

I wouldn't recommend this story, but James Naughton does a good job with narration.
