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.

    "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.

    "Above Average Jesse Stone Novel"

    Reed Farrell Coleman carries on Parker's legacy in fine form with an above-average tale. In the past, Parker and his follow-on writers of the series haven't had their heart in it--the efforts seemed to have been phoned in.

    Not so this outing. The death of Jesse's fiancée, Diana in the previous book leaves Jesse a hollowed out drunk. His deteriorating emotional health concerns his officers and friends. His job is at risk from an ambitious mayor and her political operative. Now, murder and the missing master recording from an iconic rock hero threaten to end his career in Paradise--and just maybe his life.

    James Naughton is spot on as always.

    Really enjoyable listen.
