Robert B. Parker's Fool Me Twice: A Jesse Stone Novel

Robert B. Parker's Fool Me Twice: A Jesse Stone Novel - A very easy read, and fun, but . . the three plots are connected only by location and the presence of Jesse Stone, sort of like shuffling together the three stories, each written on index cards. Brandman seems to have done a good job, as to be expected by his previous involvement with the made for TV movies of Jessie Stone, and to my ear he does a superlative job of catching the tone of Spencer's Stone.

One caveat: the starlet who is at risk spots the source of her trouble right away, tells everyone, her agent, Jesse, and Crow, the bodyguard that they both agree on, and then no one adresses her specific concern, the drugged out source of risk defeats the efforts to protect the starlet with ease. It certainly is more difficult to defend someone, than to attack, which is why the Secret Service, protection services, etc. spend so much effort trying to identify and neutralize threats, too bad the otherwise impressive Jesse and Crow don't do a little proactive work with the information that the starlet hands them.
