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.

It's like the Robert Parker franchise is for the airport lounge people.
Throw on "ROBERT PARKER'S" and people pick it up.
I'm sorry I did not enjoy this one and felt it was a waste of time.

Coleman is a very good writer. If you like Lee Child's Jack Reacher, you will like anything this guy writes. I actually think he is better than the original Parker work

Jesse Stone struggles with his demons while trying to solve connected murders 25 yrs apart. Paradise - even Molly - is trying to forget it all ever happened. A very good continuation of Parker's work.

I do not like this writers style at writing a Jesse Stone book.

Except for the insertion of familiar key people, the book was not very interesting, with a lot of filler, and too much dialog .

When I first heard that Robert B. Parker had died, I was very sad. Then I was sad a second time when I realized I would not be able to read about his characters any more. Many thanks to the authors who have stepped up to continue writing about the characters I love. I have read all of Mr. Parker's novels.
