Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Buddy Bollen is a C-list movie mogul who made his fortune producing films of questionable artistic merit. When Buddy hires Sunny Randall to protect his rising star and girlfriend, Erin Flint, Sunny knows from the start that the prickly, spoiled beauty won't make her job easy. And when Erin's sister, Misty, is found dead in the lavish home they share with sugar daddy Bollen, there doesn't seem to be a single lead worth pursuing.

But then Sunny meets Jesse Stone, chief of police in Paradise, Massachusetts, under whose jurisdiction the case falls. It immediately becomes clear that Jesse and Sunny have much in common. While searching for the killer, they learn an awful lot about each other — and themselves.

Tracking Misty's murderer reveals a host of seedy complications behind Erin's glamorous lifestyle as well as Buddy Bollen's entertainment empire, made up of shady film deals and mobsters out for revenge. But in a world where there's little difference between the good guys and the bad, exposing the killer could prove to be Sunny's undoing.

Review:

"Does Spenser's creator plan to tie up both his second- and third-string series in a single knot of domestic bliss? The riddle is one more reminder that his heroes have always been more important than their cases." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"What makes this special is the dalliance between Stone and Randall. Both are smart, clever, witty, brave, burdened with the weight of past loves, and, well, downright horny. This isn't Parker's best work, but it may be his most lighthearted." Booklist

Review:

"Sadly, this is one of his lesser efforts. The dialogue is less witty, the action kinder and gentler...and the story less compelling....I don't know about other Parker fans, but I prefer action and smart-alecky banter instead of being talked to death." Boston Herald

Synopsis:

Sunny Randall, "Boston's leading lady gumshoe" (New York Daily News), returns as hired bodyguard for the spoiled, and possibly dangerous, prize female client of a sleazy producer. This time, she gets a little help from Parker's popular character Jesse Stone, making a guest appearance here

Edward Hahn, June 16, 2011 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
This is a Sunny Randall novel but Parker manages to bring in Jesse Stone from the "Paradise" books and Susan Silverman from the Spenser series.

I keep thinking I'm going to tire of Parker's offerings but I never do. I read this in five or six hours while flying across the Pacific Ocean. Maybe that's why I like his books so much - they are humorous, quick reads containing mostly dialogue. His plots are rarely very complicated and his focus is often on relationships rather than action or solving the crime.

After finishing it, I was moved to re-watch Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" on the same flight. Somehow, I think there's a connection but I'm not sure what it is.

If you do decide to read this book, I suggest you pay particular attention to the developing attraction between Stone and Randall. In my opinion, they are both rebounding but in an adult, mature way. Fascinating!

Have fun with this book. I sure did.
