Hollywood has come to Paradise, Massachusetts. And Police Chief Jesse Stone has been distracted from his duty by a beautiful young producer. But before Jesse can get too cozy, the leading star of the movie, Marisol Hinton, approaches him for help. Her meth-addicted ex is terrorizing her, and, expecting him to turn up in town, she grows increasingly frightened for her life.

Jesse, meanwhile, is waging a war against an off-the-rails teenage girl—the seemingly untouchable daughter of a local business magnate—whose reckless and dangerous driving is endangering Paradise’s citizens on a daily basis. And as if he’s not got enough to be dealing with, Jesse’s juggling a third ongoing investigation: addressing a string of complaints from angered locals, claiming they are being charged suspiciously high fees by the local water company. Not one to give up a fight, Jesse throws himself into all three cases with his characteristic bullish vigour. But what he doesn’t necessarily realize is that those that seem to present the least danger will prove to be the most deadly.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Brandman…does solid job here…He nails Parker’s compressionist prose this time and isn’t quite as predictable in his plotting as the master had become. Parker’s protagonists frequently offered tough love to wayward youngsters, but this time there’s a little edge to the proceedings, as the water department scandal adds a genuinely clever wrinkle. As for the stalker and the movie star? Let’s just say tough guys gotta do what tough guys gotta do.”

    " Shouldn't even rate one star.....and I paid full price for the hardback! I LOVE Robert Parker's books and someone wrote another Spenser book after Parker's death, I read that and it was good--got the dialog down pat. This however, was terrible. It reads like a screenplay. This person walked here, this person came through the door, etc. Very one dimensional. Jesse falling for the new woman so fast just seemed to be obligatory romantic interest, Brandman's attempt to portray Jesse's laconic speech seemed rude instead of sassy, absent was the usual entertaining conversation with Molly and Suitcase, the movie star is a caricature of snobbery and self-centeredness, and the parents of the teenager who keeps breaking the law are also caricatures of well-to-do's who think they have the right to buy everyone off and then demand return favors. I won't be fooled twice by this author. "

    " Firtst time for reading Brandman's continuation of the series, very true to form, but brings some of himself to the project. "

    " Nice fast paced book to read. I always enjoyed the series on tv of Jesse Stone with Tom Selleck. I could imagine him "talking" while reading this book. Now want to read some more! "

    " Jesse didn't say anything. That is in almost every 2-5 page chapter in this book and one of the reasons these mysteries read so quickly. Very sparse dialog and quick paced plot. Not for the heavy duty literature reader. Just fun. "
