Robert B Parker’s Blind Spot by Reed Farrel Coleman

This is Reed Farrel Coleman’s first attempt at a Jesse Stone novel, and I have mixed feelings.

Here’s the background:

Robert B Parker wrote 9 novels in the Jesse Stone series.  (Read them in order, starting with Night Passage).  After Parker’s death in 2010 the series was taken over by Michael Brandman.  He wrote 3 more books.  In 2014  the estate changed the author to Coleman.  I wonder why?  (by the way, Wikipedia and Parkers’s website were big helps.)

Reed Farrel Coleman is not Robert B Parker and Jesse Stone is not quite the same when RFC writes the story.  I still like the character and will continue reading the series.  I’d have liked more of Suit and Molly – they add a nice depth to Jesse’s work life.  And less drinking for Jesse.  Alcohol is starting to become a character in the book.
