Grand Master Robert B. Parker is back and better than ever as police chief Jesse Stone, his “most rewardingly complicated shamus” (Entertainment Weekly), who lands two of the most difficult cases he’s ever faced…but at least he has P.I. Sunny Randall watching his back.
When the body of controversial talk-show host Walton Weeks is discovered hanging from a tree on the outskirts of Paradise, Massachusetts, Jesse finds himself in the harsh glare of the media spotlight. He’s also receiving anxious calls from the governor—a close personal friend of Weeks’—who wants this potentially embarrassing case wrapped up quickly. But when the body of a young woman whom Weeks was involved with is discovered in a dumpster, the pressure rises to boiling point. For Jesse, the most disturbing aspect of the murders is the fact that no one seems to care—not a single one of Weeks’ ex-wives or the family of the girl. And when the medical examiner reveals a heartbreaking link between the two, the mystery only deepens.
Meanwhile, Jesse’s ex-wife Jenn, a local TV anchor, has acquired a stalker. His hands full, Jesse asks Sunny Randall for help. As he unravels a knot of secret and stormy relationships, Jesse learns the full, devastating consequences of the two deaths…and realizes that knowing who he can trust is indeed a matter of life and death.
