Extrait

MOLLY CRANE STUCK her head into the open doorway of Jesse’s office and said, “Chief Stone, there’s a private detective from Boston here to see you.”

“Show him in,” Jesse said.

“It’s a her,” Molly said.

“Even better,” Jesse said.

Molly smiled and stepped aside, and Sunny Randall came in, carrying a straw shoulder bag and wearing a green sleeveless top with white pants and color- coordinated sneakers.

“Wow,” Jesse said.

“Wow is good,” Sunny said, and sat down.

“And accurate,” Jesse said. “It couldn’t have been easy getting into those pants.”

“For whom?” Sunny said.

Jesse smiled.

“Shall I close the door?” he said.

“No,” Sunny said. “I’m actually here on business.”

“All work and no play,” Jesse said.

“We’ll address that at another time,” Sunny said.

“That’s encouraging,” Jesse said.

“It’s meant to be,” Sunny said. “Do you know of a small religious organization here in Paradise called the Renewal? Or the Bond of the Renewal?”

“I’m the chief of police,” Jesse said. “I know everything.”

“Exactly why I’m here,” Sunny said.

She smiled.

“Tell me about the Renewal,” she said.

“They’re located in a house near the town wharf. Nice house; one of the elders owns it. They all live there in a kind of communal way, run by a guy who calls himself the Patriarch. About forty, with gray hair, which Molly Crane claims is artificial.”

“He dyes it gray?” Sunny said.

“What Molly claims,” Jesse said. “There’s a couple of so- called elders, ’bout your age, I would guess.”

“Hey,” Sunny said.

“I mean they’re not very elder-ish.”

“Okay,” Sunny said.

“Rest of them are mostly kids,” Jesse said. “All of whom, far as I can tell, are old enough to do what they want.”

“What do they do?”

“They preach, they hand out flyers, they go door- to- door,

raising money.”

“They got some kind of special belief?”

“They’re in favor of renewal,” Jesse said.

“What the hell does that mean?”

Jesse grinned.

“Renewing the original intent of Christianity,” Jesse said. “At least as they understand it. Love, peace, that kind of thing.”

“Wow,” Sunny said. “Subversive.”

“You bet,” Jesse said. “Town hates them, want me to chase them out of town.”

“Which you haven’t done.”

“They haven’t committed a crime,” Jesse said.

“So, what’s the complaint?”

“They’re not one of us,” Jesse said. “And they’re kind of ratty- looking.”

“They preach on the streets?” Sunny said.

“Yes.”

“That can be annoying,” Sunny said.

“It is,” Jesse said. “It’s annoying as hell, but it’s not illegal.”

“And you’re hung up on the Constitution?” Sunny said.

“Old school,” Jesse said.

“And the town council understands?”

“I don’t believe so,” Jesse said.

“And you care what the town council understands,” Sunny said.

“Not very much,” Jesse said.

They were quiet for a moment. The silence was comfortable.

“You want to know why I’m asking?” Sunny said, after a time.

“Yep.”

“But not enough to ask,” Sunny said.

“I knew you’d tell me.”

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Split Image (Jesse Stone Novels Book 9) 31 janvier 2016

I'm not surprised that this novel is a good one. I've never read one of Mr. Parker's that wasn't good. But the thing that makes this one special is that it has Chief Jesse Stone and PI Sonny Randall in the same story, flirting like crazy, and keeping the story line moving and the pages almost too hot to flip. Add two gorgeous identical twins, married to two "retired" mob bosses, who live next door to each other in Paradise? Well, what can I say? When the bad guys start dying, everyone involved looks guilty, and Sunny and Jesse get to figure out who did what to whom and why, and still make it to the end on time. It's a tale well told and well worth the read.

Par William Lotz - Publié sur Amazon.com

This novel begins with a statement by Molly Crane to Chief Jesse Stone that there's a private detective from Boston here to see him.

Jesse asks her to show him in. Molly responds that it's a her, to which Jesse responds "Even better".

The detective from Boston is Sunny Randall.

Sunny and Jesse are involved in solving three murders, all of which are connected to the same plot. Also connected are a kidnapping and prostitution.

There are also romantic sessions, completely unconnected to the plot, where love is professed, and consensual sex granted.

This would have been a very exciting novel, and still is, for the most part.

Unfortunately, there are several detrimental factors that will disrupt readers' attention from the story.

These disruptions include, but are not limited to extended descriptions of mundane activities and events that require skimming in order to find content.

These disruptions reduce "Split Image" from being an exciting novel to just an O K novel to read.

Jesse finally said no to Jenny and that was the start. He is learning more about himself about drinking...Which is good. He has a great as t staff at the police station and learning to solve crimes better. Jesse has more contacts and doe well.

As far as Sunny goes it could be that they found a match for each other. They both like there jobs and share info well.

This book was very good to read. Can't wait to start book 10.

Enjoy I did.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure Parker 1 mars 2010

This one's pure Parker. Sunny Randall is tracking down a missing person--a young woman who's living in a `religious community' with a new boyfriend. Jesse Stone's got two murders on his hands; they involve two gangsters who live next door to one another and are married to identical twins who are into three-ways that involve games of `guess which one of us you just romanced.' Bad juju all around. First a hanger-on is hit, then one of the gangsters. Then potential suspects begin to 'retire'. Jesse must separate the guilty from the innocent and survive the assault on his virtue by the oversexed twins.

Essentially, the A and B plots are occasions for Jesse and Sunny to talk, date and romance one another. The plots are lean and smooth and the dialogue is (as always) exquisite. The crimes are solved and the mysteries resolved with transparency, plausibility and Parker's usual light touch. This is a story about love and loss, human weakness and human strength in the face of personal adversity. It's also a story (as always with Jesse and Sunny) of past relationships, the blandishments of good Scotch, the efficacy of psychotherapy and the hope for new beginnings.

Bob Parker's death is a great loss to all of his readers and a loss to American letters. Samuel Johnson was a great promoter of popular entertainment, something that is essential for human life and very, very difficult to provide at a high level of skill. He said of the great actor David Garrick's death that it "eclipsed the gaiety of nations, and impoverished the public stock of harmless pleasure." The sum of harmless pleasure in our own time has just been significantly reduced by Parker's death. Split Image is a worthy addition to the legacy he has left us.
