Night and Day by Robert B. Parker

Jesse Stone returns to form

After the rather awful Stranger in Paradise I was afraid the whole series was going to just fizzle.

I was pleasantly surprised with Night and Day. It is a return to higher standard of reading to which I had grown accustomed. The plot moves along nicely, the witty banter is plentiful. The case is distressing but not super-hero level.

I will not go into all of the plot details. Those are outlined by others on the page. All in all, this is a pleasant and quick read. Everything I look for in a Parker novel - detecting, banter, psychobabble and a bit of romance (in a macho sort of way, of course).

I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
