Night and Day | [Robert B. Parker]

Night and Day

Police chief Jesse Stone has received his share of unusual calls, but none can top the one from the local junior high school. When reports of lewd conduct by the school's principal, Betsy Ingersoll, filter into the station, Jesse is faced with a particularly delicate situation. Jesse, of course, would like nothing more than to see the prim, peculiar Ingersoll punished. But Betsy Ingersoll is married to the managing partner of the biggest law firm in the state, and Jay Ingersoll wants the matter buried.

Publisher's Summary

Police chief Jesse Stone has received his share of unusual calls, but none can top the one from the local junior high school. When reports of lewd conduct by the school's principal, Betsy Ingersoll, filter into the station, Jesse is faced with a particularly delicate situation. Jesse, of course, would like nothing more than to see the prim, peculiar Ingersoll punished. But Betsy Ingersoll is married to the managing partner of the biggest law firm in the state, and Jay Ingersoll wants the matter buried. And he is used to getting what he wants.

At the same time, the women of Paradise are being threatened by a tormented voyeur, dubbed "The Night Hawk," who's been scouring suburban neighborhoods as evening falls. Initially he's content to simply peer through windows, but as pressure builds, he becomes more reckless, entering homes, forcing his victims to strip at gunpoint, then photographing them at their most vulnerable. And according to the notes he's sending, he's not satisfied to stop there. It's up to Jesse to catch the Night Hawk, before it's too late.

    "author can't remember his story lines"

    I've enjoyed Robert parker books but this book has messed up both the Jesse stone and the Sonny Randall series for me. Mr parker only needs to go back to the last 2 Sonny Randall books to realize that he has messed the plot line in night and day because he wanted to get rid of Jen and bring Sonny Randall back as a love interest. So he merely pretends the last 2 Sonny Randall books don't exist and uses her in the story line while pretending that she and her ex husband are not seeing one another. My question to mr Parker is since Richie was mas married and divorced from his wife during the last 2 Sonny Randall books and he had given it all up for Sonny, have you married him off again? I enjoyed one Sonny Randall and her brief affair with Jesse and her appearance in several other books but I'm soory that I bought this book and probably won't be buying anymore books in the Jesse Stone series until he gets his plot lines straight.

    "Fair to Midlin' Parker"

    Robert B Parker is a master at tight storylines, great characters and perfect dialogue.

    This is standard Parker -- exactly what you expect, with a lot of sex driven stuff that makes me think maybe he's working out some issues.

    The story is listenable...but like most of Parker's stuff, it's over way too soon -- which I suppose is a good thing.

    "Typical Parker"

    I enjoyed Night and Day. But then, i'm a big Parker Fan. Jesse Stone is right up there with Spencer for Parker fans. The story isn't anyhting special but Parker is second to none when it comes to dialog!

    "Slipped"

    I have been a devoted fan of the Parkers and it makes me sad to give this book such a bad rating.
    The school story line was implausible. Out of touch with reality. The actions of the principal would have drawn instant reprisal from any school board. The book seemed to be thrown together in an attempt to make a quick buck. Strike outs are to be expected and we are waiting until the next book hits the ball out of the park.

    "An enjoyable book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I read many of Robert Parker's Spenser series years ago. I really enjoyed his style of writing and the dialogue. The only thing about the Spenser novels I disliked was the Spenser/Susan relationship. The only thing I dislike about the Jesse Stone novels, you guessed it, the Jesse/Jen relationship. Although this time, it appears that the author agees with me ... finally. I love the supporting characters of these books and how they enrich the storylines. I with there could be more, as I only recently stumbled upon this series.


    What other book might you compare Night and Day to and why?

    Some of Parker's earlier Spenser novels. I like the character of Jesse Stone. I think he is Parker at his best. H


    Have you listened to any of James Naughton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I listened to James Naughton's performance and I found it enhanced the storyline, although the Bahston accents were a little overdone. I'm a lifelong Bostonian but if you met me, I don't tawk the way they do!

    "Good story, classic Robert Parker"
    What did you like best about Night and Day? What did you like least?

    Liked the story, liked the reader. For audio format, should consider omitting the "he said", "she said" tags. In the written format, they are indicators of who is talking. In the audio format, this goal could be achieved by voice inflection of the reader, with less distraction from the story.

    "Great characters"
    What did you love best about Night and Day?

    I am a fan of the made for TV movies starring Tom Selleck. I've seen three of them. As I listen to these books I see the characters from the movies.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No spoiling here


    What does James Naughton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a little New England accenting of the spoken lines


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but very enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended

    "He Said, She Said"

    I have read many books by this author but this is the first one I have listened to and I had to stop because I couldn't stand hearing, "He said," "She said". My goodness, couldn't the reader have improvised a bit! It was soooo distracting, I had to stop listening to the book so that was wasted money for me.

    "He said, She said, He said"

    I could not finish this book for the horrible repetition of 'he said' and ' she said' after just about every sentence. I think that if this was edited out the book would be about 2 hours long. I cannot believe that this was in any way edited by anybody with anything above a 3rd grade education. It would be a good story otherwise.
    But give it a miss
