The stellar new novel in Robert B. Parker's New York Times bestselling series featuring Paradise police chief Jesse Stone.
Jesse Stone, still reeling from the murder of his fiancée by crazed assassin Mr. Peepers, must keep his emotions in check long enough to get through the wedding day of his loyal protégé, Suitcase Simpson. The morning of the wedding, Jesse learns that a gala 75th birthday party is to be held for folk singer Terry Jester. Jester, once the equal of Bob Dylan, has spent the last forty years in seclusion after the mysterious disappearance of the master recording tape of his magnum opus, The Hangman's Sonnet.
That same morning, an elderly Paradise woman dies while her house is being ransacked. What are the thieves looking for? And what's the connection to Terry Jester and the mysterious missing tape? Jesse's investigation is hampered by hostile politicians and a growing trail of blood and bodies, forcing him to solicit the help of mobster Vinnie Morris and a certain Boston area PI named Spenser. While the town fathers pressure him to avoid a PR nightmare, Jesse must connect the cases before the bodies pile up further.

Textauszüge-
  • From the book 1

    Fully sober for the first time in weeks, Jesse Stone was pounding the ball into the worn pocket of his old glove. As he slammed the ball into the glove over and over again, he stared out his office window at Stiles Island and the morning sunlight reflecting off the dark blue waters surrounding it. He was trying to steady his hands and empty his mind.

    Some men prayed the rosary. Some meditated. He wasn't one to overthink things. At least he hadn't been until Mr. Peepers had shot Suit. Jesse could trace his self-doubt and second-guessing back to that bloody day. How many times in the last few months had he traced a jagged red line from the day Suit was wounded to the day Diana was killed? How many times had he rehashed the events between those two incidents, questioning his decisions? And today those questions rang in Jesse's ears as loudly as they ever had.

    "Jesse," Alisha said, sticking her head through his office door. "I didn't expect you in today, with Suit's wedding and all."

    He didn't turn around but stopped pounding the ball. "Just making sure things are in place, with most of us scheduled to be at the wedding."

    The truth was that he hadn't slept more than a few hours last night, nor did he want to be alone in his house with his memories and doubts.

    "We'll be fine. Nice tux," she said, noting Jesse's outfit hanging from his coatrack.

    "Thanks." He turned slightly, smiled. "What did you come in here for, anyway?"

    "Since you're in, there are some people here to see you. Should I send them in?"

    He cursed under his breath. He was desperate for a drink but was duty-bound to stay straight for the rest of the day.

    "Who?"

    "Roger Bascom."

    "Send him in."

    "He's not alone. He's got two other people with him."

    "What two other people?" he asked, his voice edgy, impatient.

    Alisha shrugged. "Bascom didn't bother introducing them, but one of them is stunning. She's dressed in a few thousand bucks' worth of clothes and jewelry. Her Christian Louboutin shoes and her makeup alone cost more than I make every two weeks. Believe me, Jesse, she'd get your attention if she was dressed in a potato sack."

    "The third member of the party?"

    "An older man. Well dressed, but he reminds me of a used-car salesman."

    "Send them in," Jesse said, placing his ball and glove on his desk.

    Roger Bascom was the head of private security for Stiles Island. Stiles, largely a playground for the wealthy, was under Jesse's jurisdiction. Most of the time there was little reason for his cops to venture over there to do anything but routine patrols. Early in Jesse's tenure, there had been a failed assault on the island by a gang of thieves, during which the bridge to the mainland was blown up and several cops, guards, and criminals had been killed. Since that day, the islanders had seen fit to get more serious about protecting themselves and their assets. Over the years there had been a gradual upgrading of security, in terms of both personnel and equipment.

    Jesse didn't have much use for Bascom, a lean man with a military brush cut and a chilly demeanor. He took himself a little too seriously for Jesse's taste. Dealing with him was like dealing with a household appliance, only less enjoyable, but Jesse wasn't paying much attention to Bascom when the trio walked into the office.

    Alisha's assessment of the woman with Bascom was spot-on. She ...

    Starred review from July 10, 2017
    Coleman’s heartfelt fourth contribution to Parker’s Jesse Stone series explores the meaning of a haunting line from the eponymous sonnet: “The mirror has revealed my hangman’s face.” Jesse, the police chief of Paradise, Mass., has been deeply scarred by the tragic death of his significant other, who was murdered in front of him at the end of 2016’s Debt to Pay. Several months later, Jesse is still taking refuge in the bottle, and despite his colleagues’ efforts to cover for him, his diminished capacity has come to the attention of the town’s mayor, Constance Walker, who was already not a fan of his. As he struggles to cope with his loss and his self-destructive response to it, Jesse must investigate the death of an elderly town resident during the course of a burglary. He also cooperates with private security on an upcoming birthday gala honoring a reclusive singer and songwriter who was once considered the “Boston Bob Dylan,” a responsibility that becomes progressively more complicated. Coleman balances plot and character perfectly. Author tour. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM Partners.

    In this new work in the New York Times best-selling series, a shattered Jesse Stone stumbles through his latest case after the murder of his fiancee. Celebrated folk singer Terry Jester has been in seclusion since the master recording tape of his great work, "The Hangman's Sonnet," went missing decades ago. Now, on the morning of his gala 75th birthday party, a local woman is killed when her house is ransacked, and Jesse must ask what this has to do with the tape.

    An upcoming birthday celebration sticks Paradise police chief Jesse Stone with a case that even Spenser, his private-eye counterpart in the late Parker's better-known franchise, couldn't solve.Terry Jester, ne Jacobivitz, is about to turn 75, and Stan White, his longtime manager, is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the event. It would be wonderful if the great man could mark the day, and end 40 years out of the musical limelight, by releasing "The Hangman's Sonnet," his legendary comeback project, but the master tape of the album, which reportedly featured all sorts of A-list musicians in unaccustomed support of Boston's answer to Bob Dylan, vanished years ago, unheard by anyone but WBMB DJ Roscoe Niles. Jesse, still mourning his murdered fiancee, Diana Evans (Robert B. Parker's Debt to Pay, 2016), while he celebrates the wedding of Officer Luther "Suitcase" Simpson, wants nothing better than to be left alone to fall off the wagon again. But medical examiner Tamara Elkin lectures him about drinking himself numb; Paradise mayor Constance Walker alternately needles and threatens him over his minimal efforts at making her look good; and the death of elderly Maude Cain at the hands of a pair of burglars demands his attention. There's no mystery about who the burglars were--with the help of his mobbed-up frenemy Vinnie Morris, whom he consults when he doesn't feel like doing actual detective work, Jesse quickly identifies them as Kirk Kingston Curnutt and Humphrey Bolton--the big questions involve what they were looking for and whether they found it before they took off. An even bigger question has an even more obvious answer: could the long-missing mix tape and the brand-new burglary possibly be connected? A cameo appearance by Spenser resolves nothing but makes Jesse, who can certainly use a boost, look comparatively good. The convoluted plot entangles a remarkable number of suspects. If you think you've picked out the guilty party, you're probably right.
