More About the Author

Robert B. Parker (1932-2010) has long been acknowledged as the dean of American crime fiction. His novel featuring the wise-cracking, street-smart Boston private-eye Spenser earned him a devoted following and reams of critical acclaim, typified by R.W.B. Lewis' comment, "We are witnessing one of the great series in the history of the American detective story" (The New York Times Book Review). In June and October of 2005, Parker had national bestsellers with APPALOOSA and SCHOOL DAYS, and continued his winning streak in February of 2006 with his latest Jesse Stone novel, SEA CHANGE.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Parker attended Colby College in Maine, served with the Army in Korea, and then completed a Ph.D. in English at Boston University. He married his wife Joan in 1956; they raised two sons, David and Daniel. Together the Parkers founded Pearl Productions, a Boston-based independent film company named after their short-haired pointer, Pearl, who has also been featured in many of Parker's novels.

Parker began writing his Spenser novels in 1971 while teaching at Boston's Northeastern University. Little did he suspect then that his witty, literate prose and psychological insights would make him keeper-of-the-flame of America's rich tradition of detective fiction. Parker's fictional Spenser inspired the ABC-TV series Spenser: For Hire. In February 2005, CBS-TV broadcast its highly-rated adaptation of the Jesse Stone novel Stone Cold, which featured Tom Selleck in the lead role as Parker's small-town police chief. The second CBS movie, Night Passage, also scored high ratings, and the third, Death in Paradise, aired on April 30, 2006.

Parker was named Grand Master of the 2002 Edgar Awards by the Mystery Writers of America, an honor shared with earlier masters such as Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen.

Parker died on January 19, 2010, at the age of 77.

Product Description

Review

If Spencer is the invincible knight, the timeless hero of American detective fiction, then Jess Stone is the flawed hero of the moment, a man whose deficiencies define his humanity - New York Times Book Review.

From the Inside Flap

Police Chief Jesse Stone is trying not to think about things. Like how much he's drinking these days. Or how his ex-wife has gone to live in New York with another man.
Since Jesse left L.A. for Paradise, Massachusetts, he could be forgiven for thinking life could get a little easier. Not that he helps himself. When he discovers that the local school principal has been mistreating her female charges, Jesse decides she needs to be taken down a notch. The fact that her husband is one of the most powerful lawyers in the state doesn't bother him in the slightest.
But there is worse trouble in Paradise. A tormented voyeur, the self-styled `Night Hawk', has been spying on women through their windows. As his obsession grows, so he becomes more reckless, forcing his victims to strip at gunpoint, then photographing them at their most vulnerable.
And according to the notes he's sending to Jesse, he's not content to stop there. It's up to Jesse to catch the Night Hawk, before it's too late. What he uncovers will reveal a dark heart to Paradise.

This is a good addition to the Jesse Stone novels. Not as intense as Parker's Spenser, but a good easy read. The regular characters are there and are becoming like old friends. Not too flawed and always painted with a little humour, we follow their exploits at work and with each book, learn a little more about them and of course, Jesse Stone himself, who at last seems to be untangling himself from his ex wife.
If you loved Ed McBain's 87th Precinct, then these books may be too light, but if you want an easy uncomplicated read, crime with a little humour and not too much blood and guts, then I think you'll enjoy Night and Day.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Julia Flyte TOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
This is the eighth book in a series about Jesse Stone, the Chief of Police in the small town of Paradise, Massachusetts. I have not read any of the other books in the series but that didn't impact on my enjoyment of the novel. I'm not sure how to categorise it - technically I suppose it's a crime novel, but of the three central (and interlinked) cases only one is actually a crime and it's a pretty small scale one at that. Jesse is dealing with a voyeur on the loose and a school principal who is violating her female pupils' rights by inspecting their underwear. Jesse is also grappling with the breakdown of his marriage.

The novel is very dialogue driven and it hums along with a wry sense of humour. It's a quick read, similar in writing style to Neil Cross but with less violence and more wit. Jesse is a terrific character but so are the rest of his team. It also reminded me of Steve Hamilton's series about a detective in Paradise, Michigan.

I recommend read, yet another brilliant book of twists and turns alongside emotions and relationship decisions. If I had a problem Jesse Stone would be the kind of man I'd want beside me - night and day

Wonderful,the way language is used. You can hear the conversations as you read. Some real bastards as the bad guys. You need good villains.

I love all the Jesse Stone stories, they made 8 into movies, so i am reading the ones they didn't, and i know they are not going to make any more of them into films. Thank-you the Late Robert Parker for his genius

Robert Parker is a good writer and has created a man we can all relate to.
He has all the failings of a normal person.

Jesse Stone the kind of cop you really want to get to know, Having watched the various Tom Selleck adaptations of Jesse Stone, I really felt as though I could picture the scenes in the book, Despite the Jesse in the book being considerably younger I still felt a great connection between the character in the books and the portrayal of him by Tom Selleck, I am working my way through all the Jesse Stone novels and I am loving them, His dialogue is class and his calm and methodical manner is brilliant I only wish more books could be made into TV movies. Jesse Stone a man with faults that never stop him being what he really is and that's a good cop.
