Overview

Death in Paradise (Jesse Stone Series #3) by Robert B. Parker

The Paradise Men's Softball League has wrapped up another game, and Jesse Stone is lingering in the parking lot with his teammates, drinking beer, swapping stories of double plays and beautiful women in the late-summer twilight. But then a frightened voice calls out to him from the edge of a nearby lake. There, two men squat at the water's edge. In front of them, facedown, was something that used to be a girl.

The local cops haven't seen anything like this, but Jesse's L.A. past has made him all too familiar with floaters. This girl hadn't committed suicide; she hadn't been drowned: she'd been shot and dumped, discarded like trash. Before long it becomes clear that she had a taste for the wild life; and her own parents can't be bothered to report her missing, or even admit that she once was a child of theirs. All Jesse has to go on is a young man's school ring on a gold chain, and a hunch or two.

Filled with magnetic characters and the muscular writing that are Parker's trademarks, Death in Paradise is a storytelling masterpiece.

Jesse is still dealing with his emotional issues and his addiction issues. He is lovable, likable and believable. Many different characters are introduced and slowly Jesse puts the pieces together to solve his current case. This book is much more about Jesse and his everyday life than it is necessarily about his job, IMO.

Robert B. Parker comes through with another Jesse Stone hit!! They are an easy read so they are hard to put down once you read the first page and you can't help but get attached to the characters. Whenever there is one of the TV movies made from the series, you can bet I will be watching--perfect casting with Tom Selleck as Jesse. Keep them coming!!

I admire Parker immensely  and have always enjoyed Spenser.   I have a new cast of characters to  enjoy with Jesse Stone and company. The writing is superb, and what makes it all the better is that Stone struggles  with his demons, his insecurities and doubts- except when he's working There he is in his element and nothing escapes his attention.  Great read, and in the case of this book, very topical.

I've e-mailed customer service about my e-book, "Death in Paradise". Unfortunately, I received another Robert B. Parker book called "Family Honor". I would really like to read Death in Paradise but can't seem to find a way to access it. Every time I download it I get Family Honor. Customer service just told me that they didn't have control over it, that it was the company... Any ideas anyone?

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.

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