Police chief Jesse Stone has received his share of unusual calls, but none can top the one from the local junior high school. When reports of lewd conduct by the school's principal, Betsy Ingersoll, filter into the station, Jesse is faced with a particularly delicate situation. Jesse, of course, would like nothing more than to see the prim, peculiar Ingersoll punished. But Betsy Ingersoll is married to the managing partner of the biggest law firm in the state, and Jay Ingersoll wants the matter buried. And he is used to getting what he wants.

At the same time, the women of Paradise are being threatened by a tormented voyeur, dubbed "The Night Hawk," who's been scouring suburban neighborhoods as evening falls. Initially he's content to simply peer through windows, but as pressure builds, he becomes more reckless, entering homes, forcing his victims to strip at gunpoint, then photographing them at their most vulnerable. And according to the notes he's sending, he's not satisfied to stop there. It's up to Jesse to catch the Night Hawk, before it's too late.

Listener Opinions

    " Excellent crime mystery writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane(Janelba) | 2/8/2014

    " Best Jesse Stone novel. Absolutely loved this one. Fast and witty as you expect from Robert B Parker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheryl | 2/5/2014

    " Good mystery about regular misdeeds instead of gory bloody gruesome misdeeds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/22/2014

    " average Jessie Stone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angel | 1/21/2014

    " Robert Parker is such an ace at writing clipped and concise dialog. I just love it. This is my first Jesse Stone adventure. There's a peeping tom in Paradise and a middle school principal that is a little too interested in what kind of underwear her school girls are wearing. The audio book was wonderful to listen to with just the right eastern accents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 1/18/2014

    " This one is a Jesse Stone novel but with the same smart and crisp dialogue Parker is known for in the Spenser series. Sunny Randall (a 3rd PI series by Parker) makes an appearance, along with Susan Silverman, Spenser's love interest. It has a psychoanlaysis element, just like most Spenser novels. Good quick read - can't go wrong with a Parker PI novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige | 1/7/2014

    " I am really sorry that Robert Parker will not be writing any more books. The Jesse Stone series were light reading, and the characters sometimes were cross pollinated from other RBP books so that they felt like old friends. His wit is always refreshing and generally gentle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Caplan | 1/5/2014

    " Finally, Chief Stone ditches his anchor. I only wish that there were to be more of Stone and Sunny Randall. RIP Robert B. Parker! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Melendez | 11/5/2013

    " Jesse Stone as good as ever. Parker has developed a flawed but great character in Chief Stone and in his crew. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenness | 10/9/2013

    " Everytime I listen to a Jesse Stone, I can just see Tom Selleck in my mind. Another good story and of course Police chief Stone solves the case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzie | 9/24/2013

    " With the Jesse Stone as the main character, how could you go wrong! A quick read with enough excitement to keep the pages turning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ann | 9/11/2013

    " One of the most predictable books I've ever read! The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is that I really liked a couple of the characters. I wish I could use a 1/2 star! I don't think I'll be reading another one of these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heron | 3/31/2013

    " Perfectly sweet Parker novel, with a tight plot and his trademark sweet but melancholy romantic entanglements. If only people in real life were half as principled as in Parker novels; the world would be a better place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/26/2013

    " A good quick read. Entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mason | 11/13/2012

    " Another good Jesse Stone novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 11/12/2012

    " I really enjoy the Jesse Stone stories especially when you picture Tom Selleck as Stone. Occasionally, you see Selleck on TV in the roll and it has made the books a lot of fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 11/2/2012

    " Parker tells the whole story with dialogue. Very fast to read. He is a good story teller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 susan funk | 6/3/2012

    " okay mystery..I have read much better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 5/31/2012

    " I was in the mood for a Jesse Stone book and this hit the spot. Great dialogue as always and, seemingly, an ending to a part of the Stone story I hated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley | 3/12/2012

    " I'm a real sucker for Robert B. Parker's characters, especially Jesse Stone in his 8th novel. Much as it is with the Spenser books, I just like to hang out with the Paradise, Mass. P.D. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 2/7/2012

    " I love the repartee among the characters. The guys would face a sexual harassment suit by today's standards, I guess. I liked the plot, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 11/23/2011

    " Awfully thin, even for Mr. Parker. Yes, he's charming, but Stone might as well be Spenser, for the quips and jests and manly behaviour and the plot is v. light. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra Onstot-clarke | 8/22/2011

    " I like these books, characters and the author. They are a nice easy read for pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 3/23/2011

    " Another well done tale, classic Parker sparse writing, plotting connects the dots.. perhaps a bit to much "formula" this time.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 3/8/2011

    " This is a Jesse Stone book. They are all good, but this one was better than most of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 3/4/2011

    " I had already read it a few years ago, but Parker is always a good read, like reading about old friends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 2/25/2011

    " Not much mystery in this one, but I enjoy Jesse Stone so much that I didn't mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 2/21/2011

    " book on tape
    jesse stone
    school principal has prudish issues.
    a voyeur is also onthe prowl.
    good story.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 2/8/2011

    " Another audio book that I liked but cannot recommend because of language, etc. I do like Jesse Stone's strong need to protect woman and children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 2/5/2011

    " Parker is great for a good fast read. Felt a little like this one was phoned in though, but if you're looking for something you can read in a couple hours or waiting to go through Security screening This will do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/11/2011

    " It was good, not great, but good. I'm not overly impressed with Robert Parker via this book, so I'll have to try another one of his books later this year to see if I think any differently about his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/8/2011

    " Language! It's too bad about the language because I love the Jesse Stone stories. (this character was used for a few episodes of a TV drama) All the characters in the story are compelling and the story is great just cut the language already!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/5/2011

    " Predictable and predictably enjoyable procedural: eighth in the Jesse Stone series by the late, lamented Robert B. Parker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 12/26/2010

    " Finally, Chief Stone ditches his anchor. I only wish that there were to be more of Stone and Sunny Randall. RIP Robert B. Parker! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 11/30/2010

    "
    I love the Jesse Stone series (always picturing Tom Selleck) but this one kind of felt flat so I am only giving it 3 stars.

    I am saddened by the loss of Robert B. Parker this year. I will miss his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 10/26/2010

    " not his best but not bad at all and finally - spoiler warning - some resoluton on jenn "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 10/25/2010

    " Liked the ending. But I kept wondering what happened after the previous book - it ended as if a continuing story line involving Amber from A Stranger in Paradise would be developing, but she wasn't even mentioned in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rese | 10/16/2010

    " I like Jesse Stone and I love that Tom selleck plays him on television. So when I read these novels now i picture tom Selleck. How fun is that? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginny | 9/30/2010

    " I really don't know what it is I like so much about Parker's writing style.
    Other than that, this book really didn't have anything going for it. Very, very thin and boring. "
