Description

"PARKER MAY BE THE FINEST PROSE STYLIST IN THE GENRE." Chief of Police Jesse Stone returns to investigate the murder of a troubled teenager in a seemingly bucolic New England town. The Paradise Men's Softball League has wrapped up another game, and Jesse Stone is lingering in the parking lot with his teammates, drinking beer, swapping stories of double plays and beautiful women in the late-summer twilight. But then a frightened voice calls out to him from the shore of a nearby lake. There, two men squat at the water's edge. In front of them, face down, is something that used to be a girl. The local cops haven't seen anything like this before, but Jesse's L.A. past has made him all too familiar with floaters. This girl hasn't committed suicide, she hasn't been drowned: she's been shot and dumped, discarded like trash. Before long it becomes clear that she must have had a taste for the wild life; and her own parents can't be bothered to report her missing, or even admit that she was once a child of theirs. All Jesse has to go on is a young man's school ring on a gold chain, and a hunch or two. Filed with magnetic characters and the muscular writing that are Parker's trademarks, Death in Paradise is a storytelling masterpiece.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Jesse Stone, a tough guy used to the grittier side of life, discovers the lifeless body of a very young girl near his ball field. Narrator Forster realistically captures the world-weary voice of Jesse and the superiority of the wealthy and famous people Stone encounters as he attempts to unravel the girl's last moments. There is also a very sad, and unfortunately not uncommon, view of modern family life. Jesse's relationship with his ex-wife and the interesting behind-the-scenes look of police sifting through clues are well recreated and add dimension to a somewhat typical murder mystery. S.G.B.
