I've been away for a bit, focusing on other areas in terms of blogging. However, my mystery fiction continues and I hope to announce some exciting news soon.
However, Sunday was somewhat a sad day for me. It was the sixth "Jessie Stone" movie, based on the character created by the late Robert B. Parker.
"No Remorse" was not based on a specific Parker book and he was not involved in the production, but it was a great movie and kept in the spirit of the Jessie Stone novels.
According to Newsday, Parker did view the movie before his fatal heart attack in January, and according to the report, he gave it his blessing.
I've long been a fan of Parker's. I wasn't much on his female character Sunny Randall, but I liked quite a few of Specer's adventures. But Jessie Stone was really something ... a flawed character that I liked very much.
And I was proud to see CBS and Tom Selleck put together a quality movie based on some great books.
I hope the movies continue in the same tradition, serving as a fitting tribute to a great mystery writer.
