Description

Robert B. Parker's The Devil Wins A Nor’easter blows into Paradise and churns up the past—in the stunning new addition to Robert B. Parker’s New York Times–bestselling 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 twenty-five 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.

From the Hardcover edition.

    Loved this book; couldn't put it down. Reed Farrel Coleman has taken Robert Parker's Jesse Stone series to a new level...also loved Blind Spot. I'm looking forward to his new book.
  • Great Jesse Stone Characterization

    I had a unique relationship with Robert Parker; he was my American Literature professor at NU. This work was written in typical Parker fashion. Character development was great coupled with a panoply of emotions. The basic plot was simple, but oh so many twists and turns. Suit and Molly showed the depths of their beings expressing deep, repressed feelings. Although the ending brought peace, there were so many facets to uncover!

    Very well done while using the base character but not getting tied up in it.

    No longer just channelling Robert B Parker, Coleman has written his own Jesse Stone story. Beautifully done, a riveting read, fascinating in character and plot. Must read!
