Description
The stellar new novel in Robert B. Parker's New York Times bestselling series featuring Paradise police chief Jesse Stone.
Jesse Stone, still reeling from the murder of his fiancée by crazed assassin Mr. Peepers, must keep his emotions in check long enough to get through the wedding day of his loyal protégé, Suitcase Simpson. The morning of the wedding, Jesse learns that a gala 75th birthday party is to be held for folk singer Terry Jester. Jester, once the equal of Bob Dylan, has spent the last forty years in seclusion after the mysterious disappearance of the master recording tape of his magnum opus, The Hangman's Sonnet.
That same morning, an elderly Paradise woman dies while her house is being ransacked. What are the thieves looking for? And what's the connection to Terry Jester and the mysterious missing tape? Jesse's investigation is hampered by hostile politicians and a growing trail of blood and bodies, forcing him to solicit the help of mobster Vinnie Morris and a certain Boston area PI named Spenser. While the town fathers pressure him to avoid a PR nightmare, Jesse must connect the cases before the bodies pile up further.

        Starred review from July 10, 2017
        Coleman’s heartfelt fourth contribution to Parker’s Jesse Stone series explores the meaning of a haunting line from the eponymous sonnet: “The mirror has revealed my hangman’s face.” Jesse, the police chief of Paradise, Mass., has been deeply scarred by the tragic death of his significant other, who was murdered in front of him at the end of 2016’s Debt to Pay. Several months later, Jesse is still taking refuge in the bottle, and despite his colleagues’ efforts to cover for him, his diminished capacity has come to the attention of the town’s mayor, Constance Walker, who was already not a fan of his. As he struggles to cope with his loss and his self-destructive response to it, Jesse must investigate the death of an elderly town resident during the course of a burglary. He also cooperates with private security on an upcoming birthday gala honoring a reclusive singer and songwriter who was once considered the “Boston Bob Dylan,” a responsibility that becomes progressively more complicated. Coleman balances plot and character perfectly. Author tour. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM Partners.
