The Jesse Stone stories continue even after Robert B. Parker’s passing with Killing the Blues.  In this novel, Jesse Stone is faced with what begins as a rash of stolen cars and escalates into arson and murder as Stone uncovers how deep this crime wave really goes.  All the while, Paradise, Massachusetts is preparing for summer tourism with the help of event planner Alexis Richardson, and she and Stone become involved in a steamy affair.
“It's a doozy…Michael Brandman shows that the standard that Parker set is still there…it all moves at a very fast pace.”--Lincoln Journal Star

“The mysteries are solved in Jesse's inimitable style, and he even has a little time for a new romantic interest…I love it! Killing the Blues will join the other favorites on my Robert B. Parker bookcase.”--Bookreporter.com

“[An] impressive continuation of [Parker’s] series…easy, banter-filled writing, balanced with the lead's apparently limitless compassion, informed by bitter experience.”--Publishers Weekly
