There's the same amount of action as the first book served up but what makes this one so enjoyable is the banter between Titus and the pop singer. Titus is very much his own man, very unique and self-contained.
I'm not a big fan of the love interest Sofia. There's too much PI-types already lusting for hot cops.
Aside from that another nice mix of Lee Child and John D. MacDonald.

There's also a young man named Slayton Cole (how cool does that name sound) who fills in a role that reminded me of Spenser's bond with Paul in several novels.
Coleman manages to weave a tight mystery in with another piece of character development of Jesse Stone quite nicely. Keeping his own writing style, but offering the kind of short chapters Robert B. Paker used Mr. Coleman shows again why he was such a good choice do continue this series.

As ever the writing is fast-paced and loose, making this a quick and easy read.

When his estranged brother is in a lot of trouble this PI steps in to help. Raimo is way less macho and slick than most guys in the genre. He's not the asskicking wisecracker but a troubled and romantic soul. There's quite some moving scenes in here and the whole writing has an interesting literate bend.
