1 . Too far-fetched, absurdly fictional
Posted July 20, 2009 by Kevin Kim , St. AlbertOne of three "Jesse Stone" books in a 3-book bundle offered by Sony eBook Shop. Nice cover - now I realize why Crow is sitting on the cover. It's basically about a guy whose nickname is "Crow," who, like Jesse Stone, is representing what a perfectly cool guy is like. Only one difference from Jesse here is that he is a highly skilled criminal - professional killer, who leaves no substantial proof that can be against him. All the women, without an exception, are irresistably attracted to this relentless cool guy Crow. Even Molly Crane couldn't resist the temptation he offered. And what a ridiculous logic that justifies her "sin" - she's a proud "Irish Catholic," eh? Is this some kind of joke about "Irish Catholic" and their hipocrisy or what?
This story has been one of the most incrdulous ones I have encountered - Mr. Parker seems to be playing a game with Jesse Stone, and it didn't provide me any joy of reading - no thrill, no suspense, no humanity, and worst of all, no reality. I felt sad after reading it - all of a sudden Jesse Stone looks like a superman without any real dimension. And I couldn't like what I have realized one bit. Bitterly disappointing. It's not whodunit. It's some kind of immature super human story with a feel-good happy ending. My reading with Jesse Stone (and thereby with Robert B. Parker) is done with this. It's over. I would feel dumb or even dumber if I keep reading this Jesse Stone series. I don't have enough time to read other gazillion books that are way better than this. Farewell Jesse Stone.
