When a young black police officer hired by Chief Stone guns down an apparently unarmed white suspect in a cross burning, tensions run high in the fictional town of Paradise, MA. As a white nationalist organization from out of town muscles in, urging residents to “take your town back,” Jesse has to act fast.
The result is another well-written, fast-paced yarn from Reed Farrel Coleman, one of the acknowledged masters of crime fiction. Colorblind is Coleman’s fifth installment in the Jesse Stone series, which was originated by the late Robert B. Parker.
