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

There’s trouble in Paradise, Massachusetts…

Jesse Stone is an ex LA cop who has taken the job of police chief in Paradise, Massachusetts… and things are getting strange in Paradise.

Stone is called to the junior high school when reports of lewd conduct by the school’s principal, Betsy Ingersoll, filter into the station. Ingersoll claims she was protecting the propriety of her students when she inspected each girl’s undergarments in the locker room. Jesse would like nothing more than to see Ingersoll punished, but her high-powered attorney husband stands in the way.

At the same time, the women of Paradise are faced with a threat to their sense of security with the emergence of a tormented voyeur. Initially, he’s content to peer through windows, but as times goes on, he becomes more reckless. It’s up to Jesse to catch him, before it’s too late.

‘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

America's greatest mystery writer
New York Sun
If Spencer is the invincible knight, the timeless hero of American detective fiction, then Jesse Stone is the flawed hero of the moment, a man whose deficiencies define his humanity
New York Times
Tougher, stronger, better educated, and far more amusing than Sam Spade, Phil Marlowe or Lewis Archer
Boston Globe
