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

There’s trouble in Paradise, Massachusetts…

Police chief Jesse Stone is investigating two supposedly retired gangsters. But when one of them is found with a bullet in his skull, it is the wives who seem suspect.

Meanwhile, the Markham family enlists Sunny Randall’s help in rescuing their eighteen-year-old daughter from a religious cult. Are they just over-protective, or is there something sinister lurking beneath the desire to connect to the spirit? Jesse and Sunny are soon to discover that there is a fine line between virtue and vice.

‘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
