Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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
The characters are interesting, the dialogue is marvelous, and there's enough action to keep readers turning the pages until past midnight. Lincoln Journal Star
Coleman, a three-time Shamus winner, crafts a suspenseful, clever thriller that moves at breakneck speed. Booklist
Coleman’s fourth Jesse Stone novel is easily his best. It features a clever plot and finds Jesse confronting some very real inner demons. Best of all, it brings together three of Robert B. Parker's much-loved characters. Must reading for Parker devotees. Booklist (starred review)
Heartfelt...Coleman balances plot and character perfectly. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
