Robert B. Parker and his legendary Spenser series have long been considered the ne plus ultra of detective fiction. But the critics' praise for Jesse Stone's debut in Night Passage proved there was room for addition to the Parker literary canon. "A novel as fresh as it is bold...Parker's sentences flow with as much wit, grace and assurance as ever, and Stone is a complex and consistently interesting new protagonist. His speedy return will be welcome." (Newsday)

Stiles Island is a wealthy and exclusive enclave separated by a bridge from the Massachusetts coast town of Paradise. James Macklin sees Stiles Island as the ultimate investment opportunity: all he needs to do is invade the island, blow the bridge, and loot the island. To realize his investment, Macklin, along with his devoted girlfriend, Faye, assembles a crew of fellow ex-cons--all experts in their fields--including Wilson Cromartie, a fearsome Apache. James Macklin is a bad man--a very bad man. And Wilson Cromartie, known as Crow, is even worse. 

As Macklin plans his crime, Paradise Police Chief Jesse Stone has his hands full. He faces romantic entanglements in triplicate: his ex-wife, Jenn, is in the Paradise jail for assault, he's begun a new relationship with a Stiles Island realtor named Marcy Campbell, and he's still sorting out his feelings for attorney Abby Taylor. When Macklin's attack on Stiles Island is set in motion, both Marcy and Abby are put in jeopardy. As the casualties mount, it's up to Jesse to keep both women from harm.

Listener Opinions

    " I'm truly enjoying this series - Jesse is just different enough from Spenser to be - well, different, but just enough alike for them to be cut from the same mold. The Jesse Stone books are more a group story, also, his secondary characters integral to the plots and stories in ways that only Susan and sometimes Hawk is to the Spenser books. "

    " Much better than the first in the series and the point of view shifts are an enjoyable twist. "

    " This is the first book in this series and the lead in this book was played by Tom Selleck. I could not help but compare the Edmund Spenser character and his new character Jesse Stone, both are very strong characters and could have easily switched places. "

    " This is Parker's take on the Dashiell Hammett short story, "The Gutting of Couffignal", and I enjoyed it a lot. Not quite up there with Hammett's original or the best of the Spenser novels, but fast-paced and very entertaining. "
