Robert B. Parker's Debt to Pay by Reed Farrel Coleman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think that this was the best story in the Jesse Stone series. The return of " Mr. Peepers" who is a cold-blooded, sadistic killer seeking revenge on Jesse and Suit brought a level of tension not found in the earlier books. Jesse faces many complications. He has stopped drinking and is struggling to stay sober. He has met a woman who he has fallen in love but is unsure of their future. To complicate matters, he experiences mixed emotions about the pending wedding of his ex-wife, Jenn. The reappearance of the evil Mr. Peepers thrusts Jesse into a deadly chess match trying to match move by move with his protagonist. Jesse tries to protect all those he loves and cares for – – unfortunately the ending leaves him devastated as his best laid plans come short.
