Praise for Robert B. Parker’s Debt to Pay
“His best to date.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Coleman isn’t afraid to alter the status quo in his taut third continuation of Parker’s series featuring small-town police chief Jesse Stone...a complex cat and mouse game that will keep readers turning pages.”—Publishers Weekly
“Coleman, a three-time Shamus winner, crafts a suspenseful, clever thriller that moves at breakneck speed.”—Booklist
“Coleman, a multiple award-winning author, admirably succeeds in capturing Parker’s creative style, using crisp dialogue and short chapters to maintain the reader’s attention...the talented author never falters.”—Lansing State Journal

Winner of the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award and long considered the undisputed dean of American crime fiction, he died in January 2010.

He has published twenty-three novels, including nine books in the critically acclaimed Moe Prager series, and most recently, Where It Hurts. He is a three-time recipient of the Shamus Award for Best Detective Novel of the Year, a winner of the Barry and Anthony Awards, and is a two-time Edgar Award nominee.

All in all a mediocre read by itself (unless you're a suspense fan), but a disaster within the context of what the Jesse Stone MYSTERIES are supposed to be. I hope the Parker heirs are smart enough to nip this aberration in the bud and keep future installments true to the original series. One suspense installment is more than enough to hurt the franchise; any more could destroy what Parker worked so hard to create.
Coleman uses 50 words when 8 would have worked and had more meaning.
I found myself shaking my head at what Coleman does to the characters we know and love like Cpt Healy. He's not at all the witty, sarcastic hard nosed character he was with Parker.
This is a tough one to get through, but a reminder that Parker really was the best.
But thanks to kindle, I suspect I will, like many, spend the time and money for future iterations. Hoping against hope for redemption and a view now and then of the Jesse Stone we have enjoyed in the past.
