Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fans have embraced each amazing new creation to spring from the fertile imagination of Robert B. Parker. But the praise for his series featuring small-town police chief Jesse Stone is unparalleled: "Melancholy, beautifully wrought," according to a starred review of Death in Paradise in Publishers Weekly. "The book's ultimate pleasure lies in prose whose impeccability speaks of decades of careful writing."

In Stone Cold, Jesse Stone has a problem. Actually, several problems: dead bodies turning up, and no clues. A man takes his dog out for a run on the beach, only to be discovered hours later — with two holes in his chest. A woman drives her Volvo to the mall to do some grocery shopping, and is found dead, her body crumpled behind her loaded shopping cart. A commuter takes a shortcut home from the train, and never makes it back to his house. Investigating a serial killer in an affluent suburban town is difficult, and dangerous, and with the added pressures from the town selectmen and the media, the heat is turned up on Jesse. He's spending too much time with the bottle — and with his ex-wife — neither of which helps him, or the case. And the harder these outside forces push against him, the more Jesse retreats into himself, convinced — despite all the odds — that it's up to him alone to stop the killing. As tough, clear-eyed, and sardonic as Jesse Stone himself, this is the Grand Master working at the peak of his powers.

Review:

"With each book in this series, Jesse Stone is more his own man — a lonely, unstable guy who is serious about self-redemption but who lacks Spenser's natural defenses for living in existential pain. Let's trust Parker to keep him on the edge." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A star is born. Police chief Jesse Stone comes into his own big-time." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This is the fourth book in Parker's Jesse Stone series, and it is the best." Library Journal

Review:

"Told in third-person prose that's a model of economy, with sharp action sequences, deep yet unobtrusive character exploration and none of the cuteness that can mar the Spenser novels, this is prime Parker, testament to why he was named a Grand Master at the 2002 Edgar Awards." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Tony and Brianna Lincoln just moved into Paradise, but friendly they aren't. In fact, these urbane thrill killers are knocking off the neighbors one by one, and Jesse Stone is next.
