Publisher's Summary

In Stone Cold, Police Chief Jesse Stone has a problem - actually, two problems - dead bodies turning up, and no clues. A man takes his dog out for a run on the beach, only to be discovered hour later with two holes in his chest. A woman drives her Volvo to the mall to do some grocery shopping, never makes it back to her house and is found dead.
Investigating a serial killer in an affluent suburban town is difficult, and with the added pressures from the town selectmen and media, the heat is turned up on Jesse. The harder these outside forces push against him, the more Jesse retreats into himself, convinced - despite all the odds - that it's up to him alone to stop the killing.


What the Critics Say

"Told in third-person prose that's a model of economy, with sharp action sequences, deep yet unobtrusive character exploration...this is prime Parker, testament to why he was named a Grand Master at the 2002 Edgar Awards." (Publishers Weekly)
