Somber yet always inviting, the fourth novel in Parker's Jesse Stone
series -- featuring a former LAPD cop drummed out for drinking who now
serves as police chief in the small town of Paradise, Massachusetts --
is filled with all the wit, action, and insight we've come to expect
from this proficient author.
This time out, Jesse not only
continues his battle with the bottle but must also solve a case
concerning a husband-and-wife team of serial killers stalking random
victims for the simple thrill of it. Even off-duty, Jesse has plenty of
problems, as he attempts to sort out his love life (he's got at least
four revolving lovers) and to make peace with his consuming feelings
for his rather insensitive ex-wife.
