Book Review: Robert B. Parker’s Killing the Blues by Michael Brandman

Robert B. Parker’s Killing the Blues by Michael Brandman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was skeptical when I first started to read this book, as I really enjoyed reading Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone, Sunny Randall, and Spencer books, and did not know if Michael Brandman could pull it off. I was presently surprised to find that he had.
This read much like Parker’s Jesse Stone, with the short, to the point, and somewhat wise-guy dialog. He digs into Jesse’s character flaws in the same manner as Parker, and works in the recurring characters like Lt. Healy, and the Boston Mass. area’s environs, and criminals.
This was basically a two sitting read, and kept me captivated the whole read.
I guess Brandman’s experience with the made for TV Jesse Stone movies, is what makes him know the characters and Parker’s writing so well.
I can’t wait to see if he puts out more books with Parker’s characters.
I obtained this from my local library.
