Jesse's domestic troubles are gradually overshadowed, however, when ex-con Jimmy Macklin arrives in town. Macklin plans to pull "the mother of all stickups" on the ritzy Stiles Island in Paradise Harbor. He has figured out that the Stiles Island bridge, with its underpinning of utility cables and pipes, is a veritable lifeline to the mainland, and he's gathered a rogues' gallery of professional crooks and killers to help him take the bridge and make the island into a thieves' paradise. The one problem: Macklin never figured that Paradise, Massachusetts, would have a police chief as tough and resourceful as Jesse Stone.
As usual, Parker's stark and facile prose perfectly complements the masculine sufferings of his hero, and the action of the novel unfolds with an effortlessness that intimates a craftsman at work. With Parker's Spenser safely canonized as a detective fiction legend, Jesse Stone's unfolding world offers a welcome new addition to Parker's ouevre. --Patrick O'Kelley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Great read. I really liked it. I love Jessie Stone in so many ways. I saw some of the movies before I read any books. I am reading them in order, so this was the second. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Cassie Kemp
Since the tv series, I see Jesse as Tom Seleck - and that's just fine with me. Actually, I think Tom does a pretty accurate Jesse Stone. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Squirrelgirl
