I'm not quite sure I understand your point. Apologies if I've misunderstood. Chandler's estate approached Parker to finish the book. Not Jackie Collins. Their opinion was that Parker would get closer to the end product Chandler would have produced. Consequently, that's what Parker tried to do. That's why I (I can't speak for anyone else) "assume" it has
"anything to do with" the "final story". Effectively, that was Parker's job specification. As for it being "the same". Unless Parker has psychic abilities he keeps quiet about, then of course it wouldn't be the same.
