"Night and Day" - Robert B. Parker ..........



This is Parker's eighth Jesse Stone novel. Stone is the Chief of Police in Paradise Massachusetts. The novel revolves around two separate cases. The first is the report of lewd conduct by the school principal for checking the undergarments of female students before a school dance. The second is the case of a peeping tom who calls himself the Night Hawk. His activities escalate from watching at night to invading homes and taking pictures during the day.

This is the first novel I've read by this author. It was easy and fast to read. There is very little description. Dialogue moves the action in short clipped sentences.

This book was entertaining, but it made no impression on me. Good book for a quick easy read.

I'm reading a Janet Evanovich "between the numbers" novel. She is so funny! Do you ever check out Shlfari.com? It's a book site.

I don't think I'll read this one, since I never like books that are powered by dialogue only. But I have enjoyed the movies with Tom Selleck.

Kathy,
I have read almost all of Janet Evanovich's books. She is very entertaining. I will check that site out.

Carla,
I haven't seen the movies. Were they TV movies? I love Tom Selleck - he would make a great Jesse Stone.

Dave,
I agree with you on B&N. I will spend money for books before almost anything else. Check out Robert Parker's books. I think he is an author that men would like.
