Brandman hits it out of the park. I was unable to tell if it was Brandman or Parker in much of the novel. Enough so that I'll continue buy more of the new author's book with Jesse Stone. Impressed with the consistency of style and prose. We all miss Robert B Parker but it's time to accept the person he trusted to carry his literal torch. When's the next release?
