She was barely out of her teens, not exactly beautiful, but she’d tried to make the most of her looks.

Now, defiled and alone in a seedy beachfront motel, she was dead. And Paradise Police Chief Jesse Stone doesn’t even know her name. But when his investigation lures him into the crosshairs of two ruthless pimps, Jesse finds out more about the girl than he ever dreamed. Because in pursuit of justice, if anyone can see the truth in dark, dark places, it’s Jesse Stone.

Brandman attempts to mimic Parker's inimitable style but comes far short. The dialog is trite, the plot shallow, and Jesse loses a lot of his character in the translation. Ace Atkins does a much more effective Parker imitation in his Spenser knockoffs. If this is your first exposure to "Parker," go back and read some of the master's marvelous stories for a real treat.

Brandman follows in the footsteps of Robert Parker and has big shoes to fill. Damned If You Do fell a little short compared to previous works but it was a quick afternoon read with lots of short chapters. Always a pleasure to spend time with Jesse Stone, Suitcase, and Molly.
