Stranger in Paradise Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The last time Jesse Stone, police chief of Paradise, Massachusetts, saw Wilson “Crow” Cromartie, the Apache hit man was racing away in a speedboat after executing one of the most lucrative and deadly heists in the towns history. Crow managed to escape with a boatload of cash, never to be seen again. Until now.

When Crow shows up in Jesses office some ten years after the crime, its not to turn himself in. Crow is on another job, and this time hes asking for Jesses help-by asking him to stay out of his way. Crows mission is simple: find young Amber Francisco and bring her back to her father, Louis, in Florida. It should be an easy payday for a pro like Crow, but there are complications. Amber, now living in squalor with her mother, Fiona, is mixed up with members of a Latino gang. And when Louis orders Crow to kill Fiona before heading back with Amber, he cant follow through. Crow may be a bad guy, but he doesnt kill women. Its up to Jesse to provide protection.

Meanwhile, Jesses on-again, off-again relationship with ex-wife Jenn picks up steam as she investigates the gang problem for her TV station. As she and Jesse dig deeper, the danger escalates. The life of a teenage girl hangs in the balance, and saving Amber could be the miracle Jesse and Jenn need for themselves, too.
