Publisher's Summary

Police chief Jesse Stone returns in the newest novel in Robert B. Parker's New York Times best-selling series, and his newest case hits right at the heart of the Paradise police force.

Jesse Stone is back on the job after a stint in rehab, and the road to recovery is immediately made bumpy by a series of disturbing and apparently racially motivated crimes, beginning with the murder of an African American woman. Then, Jesse's own deputy Alisha - the first black woman hired by the Paradise police force - becomes the target of a sophisticated frame-up. As he and his team work tirelessly to unravel the truth, he has to wonder if this is just one part of an even grander plot, one with an endgame more destructive than any of them can imagine.

At the same time, a mysterious young man named Cole Slayton rolls into town with a chip on his shoulder and a problem with authority - namely, Jesse. Yet something about the angry 20-something appeals to Jesse, and he takes Cole under his wing. But there's more to him than meets the eye, and his secrets might change Jesse's life forever.

Critic Reviews

“Superior...Coleman makes the impact of these events on individuals palpable, giving this nuanced entry more emotional weight.” (Publishers Weekly)

"Colorblind represents a further advance in Coleman’s effort to make this series his own.... The result is another well-written, fast-paced yarn from one of the acknowledged masters of crime fiction." (Associated Press)

An enjoyable Jesse Stone story

I've always liked Jesse Stone - he was my favourite of Robert B. Parker's characters. This book has him recently back from rehab and facing some racially motivated crimes in Paradise.

Coleman is amazing.

As a Parker fan for decades, I find Coleman’s creation of his characters and style superlative. Character development and stories are spot on.

And special thanks to narrator James Naughton for his special ability to bring it all to life.

RBP Would be Proud

I like Jesse Stone... and Molly and Geno and Vinnie and the rest. Jesses’s rehab is well done and the meetings are accurate and well written. Definitely one of the best Jesse novels since Parker’s death. Thanks

Seems like it’s winding down....Jesse Stone 😪

The book kept me hooked....
Sadly, wish we can have a break from politics and racial tensions...overwhelmed with it by news,FB, and everyday living....would have been nice to escape it ,instead of drowning in it some more with my favorite character and story line.
Also saddened by the feel towards the end, that our wayward but favorite character Jesse Stone may be coming to a close......

A Good Step Forward from the Parket Tradition

Great story! It flowed very well and did not have any slow sections. I really enjoyed it. Would like to see this as a movie.

Excellent in all respects.

RFC is doing a great job of extending the life and adventures of Jesse Stone - one of my favourite characters. Perhaps the repartee is not quite as sparkling as under RBP but that's a small negaitve in a sea of positives. The Narrator is superb and only enhances the experience.
