    "Not bad; but not Parker."

    Robert B. Parker Jesse Stone series continued by Michael Brandman is beginning to slip. The first two Jesse Stone mysteries done by Brandman were close in spirit to the Parker series. He did turn deputy Molly Grant into Charlie Sheen's housekeeper in Two and a Half Men; but in general kept Jesse's humanity intact. This selection did so as well. Unfortunately the works have become pretty formulaic as well as quite short in duration.
    I still find a great deal to recommend in the continuing Jesse Stone series. They are pleasant listens as well as affirmations in the morality of treating people as you would wish to be treated. A Chief of Police who encounters and takes down bullies of all stripes is a nice read for those of us who feel strongly about the current culture rife with so many different types of bullying. I continue to recommend the Jesse Stone series. Even if not as enthusiastically as I did when Robert Parker was the writer.

    "Have to prove"
    Would you try another book from Michael Brandman and/or James Naughton?

    The author taking over for Robert Parker will have to prove himself. This reading did not do that for me. Will see how other writings are handled.

    "Maybe my favorite Jesse Stone by Mr. Brandman"

    While Michael Brandman is no Robert B. Parker - this book seemed closer to the books of old. I liked the two cases, a murdered teenager and the possible mistreatment of residents in an assisted living situation. While I'm not sure if a police officer could handle things the way Jesse does - I like his style!
    My only complaint is that it was very short. Robert B. Parker's books weren't long either but this one seemed shorter. Perhaps I was enjoying it more and just didn't want my time with Jesse Stone to come to an end.
