Publisher's Summary

A nor'easter blows into Paradise and churns up the past in the stunning new addition to Robert B. Parker's New York Times best-selling series featuring Police Chief Jesse Stone.

In the wake of a huge storm, three bodies are discovered in the rubble of an abandoned factory building in an industrial part of Paradise known as The Swap. One body, a man's, wrapped in a blue tarp, is only hours old. But found within feet of that body are the skeletal remains of two teenage girls who had gone missing during a Fourth of July celebration 25 years earlier. Not only does that crime predate Jesse Stone's arrival in Paradise, but the dead girls were close friends of Jesse's right hand: Officer Molly Crane. And things become even more complicated when one of the dead girls' mothers returns to Paradise to bury her daughter and is promptly murdered. It's up to Police Chief Jesse Stone to pull away the veil of the past to see how all the murders are connected.

    "I Miss You RBP"

    This is the author's second work in the Jesse Stone series; Michael Brandman stopped at three and it is my hope that RFC will as well. I liked this book as I did the previous book Blind Spot but the author appears to be drifting away from the original character. Though I appreciate that the author has excluded the depiction of Officer Molly Crane as sitcom shrew that Brandman had adopted in place of humor; in RFC's books humor appears to have been totally abandoned. Furthermore their was more discussion of God and religion in this book than the sixty or so written by Parker. I would prefer to see this series be taken over by a writer who possess at least a minimal sense of humor. I have enjoyed both books by this author but I am ready for a writer more in line with the Robert Parker's style.

    This was best Jesse Stone in a while! I got to work one morning and had to force myself out of the car because it was so good and I couldn't tear myself away! LOL

    Story
    "Boring Beyond Belief !!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one who has ever read or listened to the "original" Jesse Stone books by Robert B. Parker.


    What was most disappointing about Reed Farrel Coleman’s story?

    There was a story ?? It was more a cut and paste outline using bits and pieces from other Jesse Stone books - tossing in character names left, right and center without giving them an actual role in the plot. For example - Jen calling Jesse on the telephone while he was entertaining a female "friend."


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I have heard other audios by this narrator and enjoyed them but he sounded a little tired - guess he too was bored.


    What character would you cut from Robert B. Parker's The Devil Wins?

    Sorry - there were too many to count.


    Any additional comments?

    The original Jesse Stone would have known immediately who the killer was - it was so obvious.

    This is like Robert B Parker wrote it himself. Truly excellent writing. The story is just like the ones Parker used to write.

    "Jesse Stone is back at his best!"

    The story was as well written as a Stone novel by Robert B. Parker, himself. The plot was intricate and left me wondering if I had guessed the murder to the end. Naughton's reading was well-done as always. His voice makes the listener understand Jesse's character. Great listen for mystery readers.

    "ANOTHER GREAT JESSE STONE AND PARADISE STORY"
    Would you listen to Robert B. Parker's The Devil Wins again? Why?

    Yes. The story was well-written and kept my attention throughout.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was excellent. I liked the way he wove the past murders with the present killings.


    What does James Naughton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    James Naughton is exactly how I picture Jesse Stone - he does the other voices very well too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did.

    "Not actually entirely written by Parker"

    I didn't read the small print and didn't realise Robert Parker didn't entirely write all this story. Not quite the same.
