On September 11th, Detective Jesse Stone returns in Reed Farrel Coleman’s latest novel, Robert B. Parker’s Colorblind.
Colorblind is Coleman’s fifth Jesse Stone novel (and 17th in the series), and follows 2017’s Robert B. Parker’s The Hangman’s Sonet. It’s a busy year for Coleman, who was chosen to co-author a prequel novel to classic crime movie Heat, along with Michael Mann, that’s said to be coming to bookstores sometime in 2018. According to Deadline, Coleman “will collaborate with Mann to tell an origin story involving the characters that populated the Al Pacino–Robert De Niro-led ensemble drama that Mann scripted, directed and produced.”

Police detective Jesse Stone returns in the newest novel in Robert B. Parker’s New York Times-bestselling series, and his newest case hits right at the heart of the Paradise police force.
Jesse Stone is back on the job after a stint at rehab, and the road to recovery is immediately made bumpy by a series of disturbing and apparently racially motivated crimes, beginning with the murder of an African-American female tourist. Then, Jesse’s own deputy Alisha–the first black woman to join the police force in Paradise’s history–becomes the target of a sophisticated frame-up. As he and his team work tirelessly to unravel the truth, he has to wonder if this is just one part of an even grander plot, one with an end game more destructive than any of them can imagine.
At the same time, a mysterious young man named Cole rolls into town with a chip on his shoulder and a problem with authority–namely, Jesse. Yet, something about the angry twenty-something appeals to Jesse, and he takes Cole under his wing. But there’s more to him than meets the eye, and his secrets might change Jesse’s life forever.
