DescriptionParadise is rocked by the mayor's untimely death in the latest novel starring legendary police chief Jesse Stone. The town of Paradise receives a tragic shock when the mayor is discovered dead, his body lying in a shallow grave on a property on the lake. It's ostensibly suicide, but Jesse Stone has his doubts...especially because the piece of land where the man was found is the subject of a contentious and dodgy land deal. Two powerful moguls are fighting over the right to buy and develop the prime piece of real estate, and one of them has brought in a hired gun, an old adversary of Jesse's: Wilson Cromartie, aka Crow. Meanwhile, the town council is debating if they want to sacrifice Paradise's stately character for the economic boost of a glitzy new development. Tempers are running hot, and as the deaths begin to mount, it's increasingly clear that the mayor may have been standing in the wrong person's way.

"Lupica successfully captures the cadences and banter of Parker's crime fiction....Parker fans won't be disappointed."--Publishers Weekly "Lupica seems thoroughly comfortable carrying on the fictional lives of Robert B. Parker'scharacters. He has the jaunty tone down pat, and everything flows from that with Parker's people."--Booklist
