Sea Change (Jesse Stone Novels)by Robert B. Parker
Synopses & Reviews
Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone faces the case of his career in the newest novel in the bestselling series.
When a woman's partially decomposed body washes ashore in Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone is forced into a case far more difficult than it initially appears. Identifying the woman is just the first step in what proves to be an emotionally charged investigation. Florence Horvath was an attractive, recently divorced heiress from Florida; she also had a penchant for steamy sex and was an enthusiastic participant in a video depicting the same. Somehow the combination of her past and present got her killed, but no one is talking — not the crew of the Lady Jane, the Fort Lauderdale yacht moored in Paradise Harbor; not her very blond, very tan twin sisters, Corliss and Claudia; and not her curiously affectless parents, living out a sterile retirement in a Miami high rise. But someone — Jesse — has to speak for the dead, even if it puts him in harm's way.
"In his fifth Jesse Stone novel, [Parker] captures the decadent life of wealthy individuals while contrasting their immorality and indigence with the dogged pursuit of the guilty by dedicated police officers." Library Journal
"Though every single character has, at most, two speeds-furtive self-concealment and blustering wisecracks — Jesse's fifth case...is strong enough to rank near his best." Kikrus Reviews
After the death of a Florida heiress, Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone faces the case of his career in the newest novel of Parker's bestselling series.
