Sea Change - Robert B. Parker What I really enjoy about the Jesse Stone series especially, is the way Stone interviews potential perps. He weaves this nifty little web for them into which they inevitably fall. I like the relationship he has with Molly and Suit, although the on-again off-again “affair” with his ex-wife, Jen, I find totally unsatisfactory. I also think Parker has never quite resolved how he feels about women, and it shows in his relationship with Susan in the Spenser novels. There’s something artificial about it, almost as if he’s trying to be sensitive and modern, but can’t quite pull it off.

The investigation is interesting, the plot believable, the villains suitably despicable. One of the best Stone novels.
