Publisher's Summary

The stellar new novel in Robert B. Parker's New York Times best-selling 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 40 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.

Might be done with this Series

This series has become something completely different then what it was a few years ago. Coleman has made it his series which some people might like but it not for me. 80 pages or so about Jesse's problems just got old.

Great plot but leaked Mr. Parker’s style.

I enjoyed the story, but I couldn’t envision Jesse Stone. He was too chatty. I think the estate should make sure the writers adhere to the style that Robert B. Parker established for the Jesse Stone novels.
