      Welcome to the 16th installment of the Jesse Stone series Although the books no longer are written by the late, great Robert B Parker he of Spenser fame , the legacy is being carried on admirably by Reed Farrel Coleman, who has been tagged to keep the series alive And this is one of the best so far, IMHO.The rather sleepy town of Paradise, Massachusetts, is about to get the mother of all wake up calls Plans are in the making for a mega star studded 75th birthday party for folk singer Terry Jeste [...]

      During the course of this story, I felt it was on its way to 4 stars However, the less than satisfactory ending and alcoholism easily cost a star 6 of 10 stars

      1 2 rounded up This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader On the one hand, I know that Coleman is a pro, and that he s going to approach each series, each character from a different angle But he s so effective at writing a broken, grieving Gus Murphy, that you have to expect a grieving Jesse Stone to be written as effectively and with a similar depth Which gave me a little pause when it came to cracking this one open how much of a mess would Jesse be Big A big mess.Still, I was chuckli [...]

    8. Paula says:

      If you like morose protagonists, this is a good book for you If you don t, it s a long stagger with an uninteresting drunk.The ending somewhat redeems the slow journey so I gave it two stars, but I d give it one and a half stars if that were an option.

      3 1 2 After the first 75 or so pages, I wondered what had happened to one of my bulletproof, must read authors, Reed Farrel Coleman I am glad to say, from that point on, I got my answer He is alive and very well, thank you This book takes off with a vengeance and does not let go The Jesse Stone franchise has flourished with Coleman, reaching heights that Parker never attained This story just spins and spins and spins Lots going on and with Jesse reaching new highs and lows all along the way Try [...]

    11. Patricia Ann says:

      Too much time and the number of pages were spent on alcoholism on the part of Jesse and his friends The story did not develop until 2 3 of book was read Alcoholism and the loss of girl friend is a continuous theme in Jesse s life story.

    12. Ethan says:

      Reed Farrel Coleman takes the reigns of the late Robert B Parker s Jesse Stone series with The Hangman s Sonnet Oddly, I ve never read any of the novels in this series that were actually written by Parker I did read and enjoy Michael Brandman s take on the character in Fool Me Twice, so I was excited to see what another author could bring to the table True to form, The Hangman s Sonnet is a quick moving mystery that adequately evolves Jesse Stone as a character while adhering to the standards se [...]

    15. Geneva Stokes says:

      Suburb reading, Mr Coleman, can not replace Mr Parker s writing, but comes mighty close I have read all of Jesse Stone s books and watched all the movies With Tom Selleck playing Jesse, while reading I visualize him as Jesse, makes for great reading pleasure The Hangman s Sonnet, while I found it a little wordy, is a great, don t want to put down, book Jesse s alcohol abuse is about to ruin him, especially after Diana s death But his friends help him a LOT Molly is the best co worker, ever Now, [...]

      Usually, it is hard to get used to a new author after one dies but I believe Reed Coleman does an excellent job on the Robert B Parker books I can t believe he died in 2010 Times flies Page 60 Full uniform for Jesse cop shirt tucked in with jeans, work boots or running shoes, and a blue baseball cap with the letters PPD stitched across the crown in white lined cop jacket Page 102 The thing was, Jesse had learned that if often paid dividends to knock on the same doors than once That people we [...]

    17. Peter Ackerman says:

      Good Entry in Non Parker SeriesAs the Jesse stone series goes this one is very good As the works written by authors other than the originals, this one is excellent The story is engaging as are the characters If there is any weakness to it it is the over explanation of the conclusion Perhaps as a fault Robert B Parker concluded his works rather quickly and suddenly and this is the opposite In short it s probably goes on for20 pages or so longer than it really should have in my humble opinion Stil [...]

    20. Ann says:

      It isn t wise to underestimate Jesse Stone flaws and all he is at heart a detective and a good one even when he lets his demons get in the way.

      A good read for fans of the Jesse Stone novels

    22. Stanley McShane says:

      Oh duh Yes, of course, THAT Jessie Stone I did recognize that name, but not having read any of Robert B Parker s books, nor recognizing the name of the author, Reed Farrel Coleman sorry, Mr Coleman , I just didn t connect the two until I went looking for a reason that Mr Coleman was writing Parker s books So, I wouldn t know how well or not Mr Coleman continued the soul or spirit of the original Jessie Stone series I can, however, review The Hangman s Sonnet as a standalone book, and surprisingl [...]

    23. David Schwinghammer says:

      As many of you know, Robert B Parker is no long among us Since his passing, Michael Brandman never read him and Reed Farrel Coleman have continued the Jesse Stone series The hardest part to capture is Jesse Stone s dialogue, which is most evident when he s having a discussion with his deputy, Suit, who is almost as laconic Reed Farrel Coleman, an experienced mystery writers captures Jesse s style rather well, although he sometimes over does it Coleman has written the last four episodes In this o [...]

      Robert B Parker s The Hangman s SonnetBy Reed Farrel ColemanI received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley to read and review What an amazing job Reed Farrel Coleman does of carrying on the Jesse Stone series and the work of Robert B Parker I ve long been fan of Parker and his Spenser franchise, not so much Jesse Stone I am, however, a fan of this book The Hangman s Sonnet has a fabulous plot with enough twists and turns to leave the reader guessing until the end Music indus [...]

    26. Charles says:

      While it is pleasing to experience Jesse Stone in action once again, in this book, his faults are emphasized a bit too much The chronology is after the death of his fianc and Jesse has once again crawled into the bottle, getting extremely drunk on a regular basis So frequently and so deeply that his colleagues on the force as well as professional friends find it necessary to risk at least some of their careers in covering for him Jesse is in such bad shape that he struggles through the wedding o [...]

    27. Ben says:

      Reed Farrell Coleman has written another good Jesse Stone novel He has brought new depth of character to the protagonist, in my opinion, giving the series a new life The Hangman s Sonnet refers to a long lost audio tape made by a 1960 s rock legend who is near death fourth years hence The tape, if real, might be worth millions in sales It is the macguffin the plot device which moves the story As with the Jesse Stone novels, it less about the mystery than about the hero s problems with booze.The [...]

      I enjoyed Robert B Parker s many novels immensely Among others, he wrote Spenser novels, Cole Hitch westerns, and Jesse Stone novels When he passed away, his estate authorized Ace Atkins, Robert Knott, and Reed Farrel Coleman to write the Spenser, Cole Hitch, and Stone books This one, by Reed Farrel Coleman continues the Jesse Stone series I do not think any of the three replacement writers are as good as Parker was, but they are still very good, and I enjoy each of them.In this novel, Sheriff J [...]
