When the body of controversial talk-show host Walton Weeks is discovered hanging from a tree on the outskirts of Paradise, police chief Jesse Stone finds himself at the center of a highly public case. When another dead body–that of a young woman–is discovered just a few days later, the pressure to solve the crimes becomes almost unbearable.
Two victims in less than a week should provide a host of clues, but all Jesse runs into are dead ends. Yet what may be the most disturbing aspect of these murders is the fact that no one seems to care–not a single one of Weeks’s ex-wives, not the family of the girl. And when the medical examiner reveals a heartbreaking link between the two departed souls, the mystery only deepens. Forced to delve into a world of stormy relationships, Jesse soon comes to realize that knowing whom to trust is indeed a matter of life and death.

Robert B. Parker is the author of more than forty books. He lives in Boston.From AudioFile:
What's up with Police Chief Jesse Stone? In the latest book in the Stone series, Jesse gets his new girlfriend, the funny, likable Sunny Randall, to babysit for his sourpuss ex-wife, Jenn, while he tries to figure out who killed a high-profile radio host. When is Jesse going to ditch that ex-wife and get on with the obvious? This is one of the better Stone novels, the second in the series, and Scott Sowers gives Stone just the right mix of humor and despair. We're also glad to see that Molly Crane and Suitcase Simpson are evolving into regular supporting characters. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
