Cop Fiction: Bad for Your Health
March 19, 2013
Jesse Stone, hard boiled cop, solves crimes with his buddy "Suitcase" while washing down doughnuts with coffee. After a hard day of protecting the public, the tired detective dines on a juicy steak and sometimes follows it with a strong drink. Jesse sleeps little, worries more, and faces down the tough guys with panache.
Listening to or reading this series makes me want to stop for pastries on the way to work and stay up half the night... but I probably won't be able to face down tough guys no matter what. All I'm saying is that cop fiction is a very bad influence on my health, and I can't get enough. Robert Parker's character has become real to me, and I want a doughnut to go with it. Maybe a walk around the block after every chapter will help ease my conscience?
