“Coleman takes the story of the mystery behind the murders and runs with it. The Devil Wins is such a winner of a novel that Parker's loyal fans and Coleman's new ones will be equally delighted by his skills. This series can run forever in these new capable hands and readers will eagerly await each new book about Jesse Stone. I know I will.”—Huffington Post
“Small town, big secret, and a community’s shame. In the blink of an eye, Jesse goes from worrying about potential storm damage to investigating three homicides…suspenseful, melancholy examination of loss and how sometimes, despite our best efforts, the past refuses to stay buried, and it will certainly please fans still craving more of Parker’s characters.”—Booklist
“Coleman’s solid second Jesse Stone novel finds Parker’s flawed hero, now the police chief of Paradise, Mass., still having trouble separating from his ex, connecting with people emotionally, and dealing with guilt over a subordinate’s near-fatal shooting…Coleman succeeds in adding some needed depth to Jesse’s character.”—Publishers Weekly
"Coleman does a remarkable job of developing the character, deepening our understanding of his struggle with the ghosts that haunt him…both a fine mystery story and a satisfying portrait of an emerging character that readers will look forward to hearing more from soon.”—Associated Press

I found many of my favorite elements in these pages. Murder, in a small town no less. A possible love interest. And primarily, a good story with characters who display much of the good and bad in humanity that we see everyday.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a mystery/thriller/detective story with an edge of bittersweet reality.
This, the 14th in the series though, had that old familiar feel. As if Robert B. Parker had penned it himself. And because of that, I enjoyed it immensely.
I'll not go into a description of the book itself. Info of that nature abounds. But if you've been disappointed in the Jesse Stone Series in the post-Parker era. Don't be. Reed Farrel Coleman has simply done an outstanding job of recreating all that was wonderful about them. From Jesse, the town of Paradise, & the supporting cast, down to the engaging story & it's inevitable plot twists. It's all there in glorious splendor.
I think Robert B. Parker would not only agree. But approve.
