Great story, and a fun 'read'. Crow is a hit man gaining a conscience. Stone and Crow "do" have some enjoyable to read, dialog. As always, a super "Parker" storyLine, and I particularly like Parkers' Jess Stone character!
This is a really good episode in Stone's series. Jesse teams up with a hitman named Crow to save a 14 year old girl who is the daughter of a major crime boss. She is caught between a Latino gang and her father's thugs.
It's nice out and I have a lot to do today, so when I picked this book up 3 hours ago I only meant to read a couple of pages. It's my favorite Jesse Stone book yet; the oh-so-repetitive Jenn and Jesse show didn't even irritate me! Jesse's sex life is quieter than in some of the other books but everyone else's (spoiler alert - even Molly's) makes up for it! Are there really so many people, male and female, hopping into bed with each other without any guilt, after meeting just once? Of course, that's only a side story. The main plot is a page-turner and a little different from the other books in that it tells a story as it happens instead of after-the-fact when it's time to solve the crime. A great read, and now I have to restrain myself from picking up the next one.
