‘One of the great series in the history of the detective story’
New York Times Book Review

There’s trouble in Paradise, Massachusetts…

Paradise, Massachusetts, is gearing up for the busy summer season when a spate of car thefts places its quiet, tourist-friendly reputation in jeopardy.

Jesse Stone fears an automobile theft gang has set up shop in town, and the silver-tongued, heavy-handed police chief vows to put a stop to their activity. But almost as soon as he starts tackling this threat, another materializes: one of a more personal nature. An old enemy, hell-bent on revenge, is fresh out of prison.

‘When it comes to detective novels, 90 per cent of us admit he’s an influence, and the rest of us lie about it’
Harlan Coben, bestselling author of Run Away


Reviews
