Chief of Police Jesse Stone returns to investigate the murder of a troubled teenager in a seemingly bucolic New England town.

The Paradise Men's Softball League has wrapped up another game, and Jesse Stone is lingering in the parking lot with his teammates, drinking beer, swapping stories of double plays and beautiful women in the late-summer twilight. But then a frightened voice calls out to him from the edge of a nearby lake. There, two men squat at the water's edge. In front of them, facedown, was something that used to be a girl.

The local cops haven't seen anything like this, but Jesse's L.A. past has made him all too familiar with floaters. This girl hadn't committed suicide; she hadn't been drowned; she'd been shot and dumped, discarded like trash. Before long it becomes clear that she had a taste for the wild life; and her own parents can't be bothered to report her missing, or even admit that she once was a child of theirs. All Jesse has to go on is a young man's school ring on a gold chain, and a hunch or two. Download and start listening now!

    " This is an early Jesse Stone (I can't give the publication date since I read it in large print and they only give the date it was first printed in large type). So how can I tell it's an early one? Well, first of all Jesse really does have a drinking problem. Second of all he begins therapy with the bald, enigmatic Dix, and third he and Jen are just beginning to circle around each other in their ex-marriage love affair. As far as the mystery goes, Jesse is looking for someone who killed a teenage run-away called Billie, a girl whose parents deny they have a daughter. Although Jesse finds the murderer, he doesn't delve into the dysfunctionality of a family that would deny their own daughter. I kind of like the fact that Parker hasn't dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's in this one. "
