Revue de presse

“Stone is a deceptively complex character, one whose problems are both interesting and completely believable…another strong effort in what is already an impressive series.” —Library Journal

“Beautifully wrought...[an] immensely satisfying tale. Rarely if ever has Parker’s fiction conveyed with solemn intensity the challenge of living a good life in a world of sin. The book’s ultimate pleasure lies in the words, suffused with a tough compassion won only through years of living, presented in prose whose impeccability speaks of decades of careful writing.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

 

“What’s so cool about Death in Paradise is watching Jesse Stone’s relentless pursuit of the bad guy.” —St. Petersburg Times

 

“Hard-hitting...and brutally frank...Parker reinvents, revises and reincarnates the hardball, tough-guy, deadpan mysteries of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. Death in Paradise is a tough, clear-eyed, sardonic look at life and the raw deals it can dish out” —The Providence Sunday Journal

 

“If you love Parker, you’ll love this book. Jesse Stone is clearly in the Parker style” —Calgary Herald

 

“James Ellroy-style dialogue...Like Jesse Stone’s beer, Parker’s novels can be quaffed with relish.” —The Ottowa Citizen

 

“[Parker’s] gift for creating engaging characters and involving the reader in their fate makes this...well worth your attention.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune

 

Présentation de l'éditeur

Robert B. Parker is back in Paradise, where Detective Jesse Stone is looking for two things: the killer of a teenage girl—and someone, anyone, who is willing to claim the body…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Second in a Series: Death In Paradise 20 décembre 2003
Par Kevin Tipple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Robert B. Parker is one of my guilty pleasures. Whether it is his long running Spenser series, or the two new series he has started featuring Sunny Randall or Jessie Stone, the books are all pretty much the same. Mr. Parker can be counted on to tell an interesting, relatively simplistic story where evil walks among us and will be struck down as fast as possible. Much like a great Steven Segal movie, the hero will do this almost single handily without a hair out of place and our hero is always a sure hit among the many ladies. When you don't want to have to think to follow along as a reader and you want a guaranteed escape from current reality, Mr. Parker is sure to come up with some enjoyable mind candy. This offering serves as yet another case in point.
Mr. Parker returns to the mean streets of small town life in Paradise, Massachusetts in his recent novel featuring Jesse Stone. Jesse is still the chief of Police and still torn by his love of drink as well as his love for his ex-wife, Jenn. Following up on his theme in Trouble In Paradise, the previous novel of the series, Jesse is still fighting the good fight. He wants Jenn back in the worst way, but is trying to stay strong in his resolve to allow her to find her own life and then decide if he still belongs. Their Wednesday night dates are still on and they remain open to seeing other partners. At the same time, he is still battling the idea that he is an alcoholic and that he will have to deal with it.
Both issues get pushed slightly backward as a body is discovered floating in the lake after a softball game. Jesse thinks he knows who it is and suspects that it is the body of a young teenage runaway. But her family won't acknowledge that she ever existed and due to the condition of the body, identification will take time.
As he and his small force of ten officers begin to work the case, a side story of domestic violence comes to his attention. Splitting his time between both cases becomes a full time effort as he tries to find one killer as well as preventing death in the other case. Jesse has his hands full and hardly breaks a sweat as he goes about his business working both cases.
Mr. Parker keeps up his long tradition of shallow characters, plenty of apparent action and almost continuous dialogue in this novel. At 294 pages in length, one would expect that this novel would not read as fast as it does. However, with so little narration and almost continuous dialogue consisting of very short sentences, it becomes an amazingly fast read. Mr. Parker won't change the world through his novels or how you look at it, but he can make you forget about it for a bit. Reminds one of a really good chocolate candy bar-great going down, but plenty of empty calories. Enjoy the break!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Small town facing big city vices 7 janvier 2002
Par Terry L. Tyson - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is the first Jesse Stone novel I've read, but it certainly will not be the last. To call it a mystery would be inaccurate, for it more closely resembles a police procedural and character study than anything else. Parker's dialog is perhaps his strongest ability as a writer, but there is plenty of interesting plot and character development to keep the all but the most petulant reader satisfied. Death in Paradise is, in a word, FUN!
Parker has created believable worlds in all of his books with characters and places that ring true and the same is true in Death in Paradise. I get the sense that Parker has or is walking in Jesse Stone's shoes now and again. Stone's realizations about love, addiction, need and purpose are right on the money to the point of appearing to be autobiographical.
His familiar, quick style moves the story along very well and his dialog is always a treat. When a Parkeresque-recognizable Boston crime lord appears, I almost expected Hawk or Susan to walk around the corner and say "Hello!" Parker fans will be pleased, newcomers will be intrigued to read more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb Mystery 11 octobre 2001
Par Sheri Melnick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Robert B. Parker once again scores a winning run with his third novel in the Jesse Stone series. Former L.A. homicide detective Jesse Stone is now Chief of Police in Paradise, Massachusetts after alcohol ruined both his detective job and his marriage. When the body of a young girl is found in a lake during one of Jesse's softball games, Chief Stone must use his well-honed investigative skills to find the killer.
Just as Jesse feels the need to lead his softball team (he once played in the minors), he must lead his police force in his quest to find the killer of the unidentified girl. Just to name a few on the force, there is Molly, with her Irish-Catholic sense of humor, a perfect combination with Jesse's dry wit. And Suitcase Simpson is only too eager to please his Chief though his experience with surveillance is nil.
As Jesse follows the trail of clues to discover the murderer's identity, his personal life is carefully revealed. His dependent relationship with his ex-wife, Jenn, is inextricably intertwined with his alcohol problem. And there is Lilly, the high school principal he is seeing seemingly to avoid loneliness.
Mr. Parker has penned another sure success, one of his best yet. The mystery is nothing short of excellent, as previously unrelated characters become suspects caught in a web that begins to unravel as their connection to each other is exposed. And Jesse is portrayed as a very real hero, a man who seems rather sure of himself to his peers and to women, but a man who battles quite a few demons in private.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining, but light... 25 novembre 2003
Par Cynthia K. Robertson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Death in Paradise by Robert Parker is a very entertaining, but very light mystery. We follow the exploits of Paradise chief of police, Jesse Stone, as he tries to solve a murder mystery, get his drinking under control and get his love life on track. While Parker's dialogue is first rate, it seems to read more like a screenplay than a novel. Also, the plot seems to resolve itself just a little too quickly. My biggest complaint, however, is all the wasted paper. With 1 to 1-1/2 blank pages between each chapter--and we're talking 66 chapters and almost 300 pages here, it's almost as if Parker tried to make a novella into something larger. So for Parker fans, you'll enjoy this book but don't expect a deep, complicated or dramatic mystery.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Death in Paradise 31 juillet 2002
Par Ricky N. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
"Death in Paradise" is the third novel in the Jesse Stone series by Robert B. Parker, who is better known for his Spenser novels. The remains of a teenage girl are found in a Paradise lake. The girl had been shot and dumped in the lake. Paradise police chief Jesse Stone discovers that the girl is Billie Bishop, and learns that she and other runaway girls seem to have ties with a Boston mob boss. Quite a bit of time is also devoted to Jesse's relationship with his ex-wife, Jenn, who is a weatherperson for a Boston TV station. "Death in Paradise" is more of a straight mystery than either of the first two Jesse Stone novels. I enjoyed reading "Death in Paradise", and look forward to more Jesse Stone novels in the future.
