Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Fans often feel uneasy when the creator of a popular character ventures into new turf, and sometimes their trepidation is justified. But readers of Robert B. Parker's immensely popular Spenser series can breathe a sigh of relief: while Night Passage doesn't feature Spenser, his usual gang of associates or a Boston setting, it's vintage Parker--fast, witty, suspenseful and engaging.

Told in short, crisp chapters, it is the story of Jesse Stone, a 34-year-old who has just lost his Los Angeles policeman's job and his marriage because of a drinking problem. The book opens as Stone leaves California for his new job as chief of police in the picturesque town of Paradise, Massachusetts.

But Paradise isn't as placid as it seems--in fact, it's a festering mass of petty corruption, right-wing militia, sexual scandal and bad guys who favour strong-arm tactics. Night Passage boasts a delicious, classic setup: the lone lawman, new in town, must make his stand to clean up the place. Stone has been picked for the job because the town fathers figured he'd be weak and malleable; as he gradually pulls himself together, it turns out they have a surprise in store. Stone's qualities may remind you of Spenser's--he's taciturn, fearless, good-looking and compassionate--and in the end the plot's pleasing complexities are resolved a bit simply.

But Robert B. Parker is in fine form, with his smart-aleck wit under control and his prose at its economical best. Spenser fans and Parker neophytes alike will find plenty to enjoy here. And the setting is, after all, not far from Boston--dare we hope for a Spenser-Stone meeting in future books? --Laura Smith

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well Done 2. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"Night Passage" and its sequel "Trouble in Paradise" start the Robert B. Parker fan down another road, as enjoyable as the one we have been on for so long following Spenser's career.
Jesse Stone is a real person whose battles to discover how he feels about his separated wife, struggles to control his drinking, and efforts to settle in to a small New England town which could not be more different to L.A., keep surfacing as he deals with his (initially) inadequate police force and the criminal undercurrents in his town, set in motion by some of the town's leaders.
Great character and great story - and the sequel is even better!

Jesse Stone is a cop on his way down.Paradise, Massachusetts is a town that isn't quite the idyll it appears on the surface.Robert B Parker is beginning a new series that bids fair to bring back that snap and magic that i found in the mid-period Spenser books which has, sadly, been somewhat less in evidence in the later ones.Stone is an LA homicide detective who has hit a bad patch when he realises that his wife is cheating on him, which leads to their divorce which results in his determined attempts to crawl into a bottle of scotch.Which, in turn, leads first to his long-time partner's reluctant refusal to continue working with him and thence to his captain's offer: resign or be fired.Paradise Massachusetts is one of those neat little Colonial towns full of yuppies and Old Money types, and they just happen to need a Chief of Police... and Jesse is Just What They Want, even if he WAS rather more than half-drunk during his employment interview.In many ways, this story is an "inverted" mystery story, since Parker all along the way keeps us informed as to what the Bad Guys are up to, alternately with showing us Jesse's growing conviction that Something Bad Is Going On.Jesse is npt the wise-cracking near-thug that Spenser is; he is good cop (once he discovers that he doesn't HAVE to get plowed every night and remembers how to be one) with a dry understated sense of humour, and an appreciation of the legal, political and practical aspects of his position. Faced with a thuggish body-builder who laughs in his face while telling him that the restraining order his ex-wife has against him is unenforceable, Jesse nods, agrees, and then tells the thug to stay away froem her anyway...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gute Unterhaltung, auch für Fremdsprachler 26. Juni 2012

Ok, ich kannte Jesse Stone, verkörpert vom Tom Selleck, schon. Aber das macht es noch interessanter. Der Krimmi ist spannend und dank der Wörtrbuch-Funktion im Kindle ist auch Slang / Umgangssprache gut zu verstehen. Gut, dass es weitere 9 Krimmis der Serie gibt.

Parker has obviously tired of Spenser, his super hero detective of many years. Now we have Jesse Stone, flawed, silent, alone. To his credit he is tough, honest, decisive. What made Parker a success was his lively, witty characters, brought home by great dialog. This book has no memorable dialog and all the characters are thin. The protagonist, Jesse Stone, needs some development to make him more interesting. The story line is as good as Parker's previous work, but he'll have to grow Stone considerably, beef up some other characters, to keep me coming back every year as I did for his Spenser novels.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Parker tries someone other than Spenser 20. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Night Passage is Robert Parker's attempt to return to form after his Spenser character was beginning to look rather tired. He has introduced Jess Stone, who may or not be reintroduced in later novels. Stone has left California because of a drink problem. He is recruited to a rather odd town, ironically named Paradise. It is immediately clear that the town wants a malleable sherrif and that strange money-laundering activities are going on. Unfortunately for Paradise, Jesse Stone turns out to be no pushover. While trying to cope with his wrecked personal life, he digs deeper into the corrpuption of the town, which revolves mainly around the bank head, Hastings Hathaway. Unfortunately, nearly all the characters in Night Passage are stereotypes. Indeed, some are laughably so. My edition also has a very irritating font for the first line of each of the 75 chapters. It's that "pseudo-handwriting" font which inexperienced editors often use, but about which professional editors should know better. Notwithstanding this, the book is an easy read and is a definite improvement on Parker's recent Spenser attempts. Jesse Stone is a good charactr and will, I suspect, return. Oh, and there isn't any cooking in this book, thank god.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, but still.... 13. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's time for Parker to test different water before losing his elasticity in Spenser. This once is not bad but still seemed to be published in bit haste. The author started this book based upon a not-so-convincible premise: Jesse Stone, a veteran cop fired by LAPD due to alcoholic problem and lousy service record. Guy like him nowadays (with FAX, Email, on-line communication, and etc.) would be very difficult to be hired again elsewhere even being a small town deputy and less possible to successfully relocated to any town to become a CHIEF OF POLICE(this title seems to be bigger than Sheriff?), unless Jesse forged his resume, or what? Based on this wrong-foot start, Mr. Folman, the unlikely scapegoat in OJ Simpson murder case, should have already found himself pretty easy to find a Police Commissioner capacity in another Paradise long before he fall prey to alcoholic problem? Well, I don't know.
