Publisher's Summary

When a woman's partially decomposed body washes ashore in Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone is forced into a case far more difficult than it initially appears. Identifying the woman is just the first step in what proves to be an emotionally charged investigation.Florence Horvath was an attractive, recently divorced heiress from Florida; she also had a penchant for steamy sex and was an enthusiastic participant in a video depicting the same. Somehow the combination of her past and present got her killed, but no one is talking, not the crew of the Lady Jane, the Fort Lauderdale yacht moored in Paradise Harbor; not her very blond, very tan twin sisters, Corliss and Claudia; and not her curiously affectless parents, living out a sterile retirement in a Miami high rise. But someone, Jesse, has to speak for the dead, even if it puts him in harm's way.


What the Critics Say

"Parker is dead-on here when it comes to police procedure and plotting, as the seemingly simple case eddies into all kinds of ugly complications, and the story swirls from whodunit into an absorbing whydunit." (Booklist)

Jessie is the man!

Always loved Robert Parker books - especially his Spenser novels. But, if you can believe it, Jessie Stone, the hero of his latest series is even better - just as gifted an investigator ( although Jessie, unlike Spenser, is still a cop ) but much more flawed - and likeable. He has a drinking problem, a lovelife problem, no Hawk to back him up - but he still manages to solve the case while commenting on the foibles and fantasies of his very mixed-up life and that of those around him. Five stars and I hope for a lot more of Jessie Stone!

Sea Change

OMG! Way too many he said, she said. Way too annoying. I even gave the CDs for a friend to listen to and he couldn't even finish the audio either. Don't know if this was the narrator or the authors fault, but it made me crazy.
