"Waiting On" Wednesday | Blind Spot (Sept 3)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is

Even though Robert B. Parker passed away in 2010, his famous characters Spenser and Jesse Stone live on, at the request of Parker's widow and sons, thanks to new authors from Parker's publisher.


Police Chief Jesse Stone is back in the remarkable new installment of the New York Times-bestselling series.

It's been a long time since Jesse Stone left L.A., and longer still since the tragic injury that ruined his chances for a professional baseball career. When Jesse is invited to a reunion of his old Triple-A team, he is forced to grapple with his memories and his regrets over what might have been.

But his time at the reunion is cut short when a young woman is found murdered and her boyfriend, a son of one of Paradise's most prominent families, is missing and presumed kidnapped. Though seemingly unrelated, there is a connection between the reunion and the crimes as Jesse discovers that one of his former teammates may in fact be his main suspect. Sometimes, danger comes not from where you expect it—but from your blind spots.

I have enjoyed the Jesse Stone series of Police Procedural Mysteries from the beginning. Blind Spot is the thirteenth book in the series.

Four of the Jesse Stone books have been turned into TV movies, and another five movies have been made, for a total of nine Jesse Stone movies, all starring Tom Selleck as Jesse. Now that I know how Jesse looks (like Tom Selleck) and how he sounds (like Tom Selleck), I know just how to imagine Jesse as I am reading the books.  Perhaps that is why I am so looking forward to the next book in the series.  The great writing, strong and engaging characters, and intriguing cases to solve may also have something to do with it.
