Paradise, Massachusetts, is preparing for the summer tourist season when a string of car thefts disturbs what's usually a quiet time in town. In a sudden escalation of violence, the thefts become murder, and chief of police Jesse Stone finds himself facing one of the toughest cases of his career. Pressure form the town politicians only increases when another crime wave puts residents on edge. Jesse confronts a personal dilemma as well: a burgeoning relationship with a young PR executive whose plans to turn Paradise into a summer concert destination may have run afoul of the law. And when a mysterious figure from Jesse's past arrives in town, memories of his last troubled days as a cop in L.A. threaten his ability to keep order in Paradise--especially when it appears that the stranger is out for revenge.

After listening to a couple long audiobooks (14 discs each) thought it was time for something a little shorter. This story fit the bill!! Not real exciting, but a good story nonetheless. Really liked the fact that they portrayed the small town chief police as a caring individual who really influenced the lives of many of the town's residents. If you're looking for a quick read, this is a good one!! 7 out of 10 for me.

Robert Parker didn't write this story, and it shows. This character does things that Parker's character would never do (for example, adopt a cat), and I don't think that the story is structured as well. For example, a major story-line starts quite late into the book, which I don't think Parker would have done.

There is nothing wrong with cats, of course, but Parker's characters always had dogs. So it's just not right!!

I found this novel tight, interesting and a fun read. I think it is well worth your time. Since there is a contrasting opinion, judge for yourself and let fellow readers know. 9 of 10 stars
