STONE COLD – G+
Parker, Robert B. – 4th in series
Investigating a serial killer in an affluent suburban town is difficult, and dangerous, and with the added pressures from the town selectmen and the media, the heat is turned up on Jesse. He's spending too much time with the bottle-and with his ex-wife-neither of which helps him, or the case. And the harder these outside forces push against him, the more Jesse retreats into himself, convinced-despite all the odds-that it's up to him alone to stop the killing.
This is classic Parker; the loyal, sardonic male in a dysfunctional relationship and attractive women who like sex but don’t eat much. But there’s still the hero’s sense of justice and character which so hallmark his books. While Parker’s books may not be quite what they once were, They are always well written, with good tension, excellent dialogue and a pleasure to read.
