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.

Critic reviews

“A fast-paced fascinating mystery.” (The Providence Journal)

“The complicated, all-too-human Jesse Stone [is] every bit as compelling, charismatic and resolute as [the] better-known, valiant Spenser.” (The Boston Herald)

“Crackles with wisecracks.” (Forbes)

Great book

As with all of Robert Parker's books, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Parker has a mastery for writing convincing dialogue. I didn't have any problem with his use of "he said" or "she said" as other listeners have.

I love Parker's writing; he doesn't pad his books with needless prose, his character development is excellent, and his plots are great. Stone's a well-developed, tragic guy with lots of problems. Reminds me of some people I know.
