I love all the Sunny Randall books.Robert Parker said he orginally wrote the 1st Sunny Randall book as a vehicle for Helen Hunt as an idea for a movie..but no movie has ever been done.. i say for the best read.. 1st read all the Jesse Stone books by Parker and then the Sunny Randall. they are both great series...

I love Parker's sarcasm and wit. Not a big fan of the Stone books, more a Sunny Randall fan. This crossover was the perfect mix of the two. As always, a little predictable, but in a safe, comforting way.
I always liked the Jesse Stone series and now you can put a face to him of Tom Selleck, I haven't read many of the Spenser series, I've tried Sunny Randall books but they just kind of fall short for me, maybe it's the dog.
Love Sunny Randall! Great book, fast read, fun, good story. Like all of Parker's characters, this one is terrific. He writes men characters (Spenser & Jesse) and women characters (Sunny) equally well - with the same wit.
When an acquaintance recommended Robert B. Parker as an author whose books were absolutely worth reading, I decided to check one of his book out. It happened to be BLUE SCREEN. A tricksy plot. Likeable characters (as well as some not so likeable.) Some satisfying come-uppances . . . I enjoyed it immensely! Rats! As if a confirmed book-o-holic like me truly needed another set of exceptionally good books to dive into. Now I reeeaally need to go out and get the other books in this series. I recommend this highly to any mystery lover.
From back cover: Sunny Randall is hired by a sleazy producer to serve as bodyguard for his prize client--an impossibly spoiled B-list beauty whose backstory is full of deadly complications . . .
Sunny and Jesse meet for the first time in this one while they are investigating a murder(of course). Like the writing of Parker, the clipped dialouge that makes each page easy to read and makes the story move along good without a lot of descriptions.
Sisters who are servicing a brute of a pimp who has become a producer of movies. One sister has a body to die for while the other sister dies suddenly under mysterious circumstances. A woman detective gets involved as a bodyguard and later as a hero in the bold rescue of the eldest sister. 6 hours on 5 compact discs
