5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Conflicts and Resolutions March 13 2010
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
"He also split the rock, and the waters gushed out." -- Isaiah 48:21

I held off starting this book until I had absorbed and become accustomed to the news of Robert B. Parker's passing. Rather than anticipating that there would be dozens more Parker novels coming soon, I realized that the time had come to more carefully examine and consider the last few novels in the editorial pipeline.

Split Image was a pleasant surprise for me in several dimensions. Although the cover refers to this as a Jesse Stone novel, there's quite a lot of Sunny Randall in the book, too, as she pursues a private investigation in Paradise, that well-known home and haunt for mobbed-up crooks and moral-appearing bad guys. Their interactions are rich in this series, and Split Image is one of the best books for bringing out the foundations for the mutual attractions and hurdles.

In addition, Mr. Parker has handled a sexually tinged story with much more deftness than he usually did in the past. Sometimes his novels seem to be more like exercises in voyeurism concerning the vulgar than they are stories about human sexuality in all of its dimensions.

To me the best police procedural and crime novels start with an unusual premise . . . and then play out in unexpected ways. Here the premise is one that I would never have come up with in a million years: Two mobsters who don't care that much for one another marry twins and live next door to one another in (where else?) Paradise.

In many police procedurals, you know exactly what to expect from the beginning. Mr. Parker rewards us with a plot that has more surprises to keep things interesting than we have any right to expect. I liked that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jesse and Sunny; Coda Aug. 25 2010
By Pol Sixe TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Split Image is one of Robert B Parker's last books. In this one he returns to Paradise, MA and his Chief of Police Jesse Stone. The little police dept has a couple of murders to solve involving [splitting image] twin sisters. Another play on the title is the concurrent story involving Sunny Randall, she has a case that brings her to Paradise also. Jesse and Sunny see their shrinks, make some progress and of course get the goods on their cases. Altogether relatively mild and less gritty than other recent RBP. A happy ending for all and a job well done.
