    When the skeleton of a young girl, not yet a teenager, is discovered in Acadia, Canada, Tempe Brennan is reminded of Evangelina, her best friend in her preteen years, who was mysteriously taken away when she was 12. Evangelina was from strange and faraway Acadia. She was named after Evangeline in the Longfellow poem, and loved poetry. Tempe found her exotic and glamorous, and then suddenly she was gone, and Tempe was told not to try to find her, that she was "dangerous".

    It seems that the story drags on and on without reaching any real conclusions. Too technical - needs more explanation of the tech terms used. Found it boring in places. Hope the next one is better.

    Paradise, Massachusetts, is preparing for the summer tourist season when a string of car thefts disturbs what is usually a quiet time in town. In a sudden escalation of violence, the thefts become murder, and chief of police Jesse Stone finds himself facing one of the toughest cases of his career. Pressure from the town politicians only increases when another crime wave puts residents on edge. Jesse confronts a personal dilemma as well: a burgeoning relationship with a young PR executive, whose plans to turn Paradise into a summertime concert destination may have her running afoul of the law.

    S. Wells says: "NOT Parker"
    "Narration was too distracting to the story."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Teens and young adults.


    What was most disappointing about Michael Brandman’s story?

    Hard to follow the characters and what was occurring.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    After each character spoke he identified each speaker by saying Jesse said or Hanson said, etc. Detracted from the smooth flow.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not many.
