    Great Book!

    The first two books in Robert B Parkers (Jesse Stone) series had a couple of moments of laughter that caught you off guard. This one, Death in Paradise had many more of those moments. Still Jesse Stone has his one line comments (which are amusing in themselves). The evolving relationship between Jesse & Jenn is smooth and not overwhelming, slow & steady. I have to wonder why a book wasn't written about the bridge in book #2 that was blown up...and the rebuilding of it.....??? Even if you haven't read the first two books in this series, read this one! I am moving on to book #4.

    The enjoyment of the Jesse Stone series doesn't end. "Death In Paradise" keeps the characters strong and likable. Very enjoyable.

    I'd never read several books of the same series, one after the other, in the past. While I have other books to read, I don't seem to be as interested in them as I am in the characters of the Jesse Stone series. I thought I'd tire of them and want a break, but so far they are so strong and different that they keep me hooked. "Death In Paradise" keeps my interest alive. I look forward to the next book in this series.

    Love Jesse Stone!

    Another hit series by Parker. Have not read his stuff since Spenser (which I loved). Will definitely have to collect all of these.

    Superb Mystery

    Robert B. Parker once again scores a winning run with his third novel in the Jesse Stone series. Former L.A. homicide detective Jesse Stone is now Chief of Police in Paradise, Massachusetts after alcohol ruined both his detective job and his marriage. When the body of a young girl is found in a lake during one of Jesse¿s softball games, Chief Stone must use his well-honed investigative skills to find the killer. <br><br> Just as Jesse feels the need to lead his softball team (he once played in the minors), he must lead his police force in his quest to find the killer of the unidentified girl. Just to name a few on the force, there is Molly, with her Irish-Catholic sense of humor, a perfect combination with Jesse¿s dry wit. And Suitcase Simpson is only too eager to please his Chief though his experience with surveillance is nil. <br><br> As Jesse follows the trail of clues to discover the murderer¿s identity, his personal life is carefully revealed. His dependent relationship with his ex-wife, Jenn, is inextricably intertwined with his alcohol problem. And there is Lilly, the high school principal he is seeing seemingly to avoid loneliness. <br><br> Mr. Parker has penned another sure success, one of his best yet. The mystery is nothing short of excellent, as previously unrelated characters become suspects caught in a web that begins to unravel as their connection to each other is exposed. And Jesse is portrayed as a very real hero, a man who seems rather sure of himself to his peers and to women, but a man who battles quite a few demons in private.
