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.

Coleman’s solid second Jesse Stone novel (after 2014’s Blind Spot) finds Parker’s flawed hero, now the police chief of Paradise, Mass., still having trouble separating from his ex, connecting with people emotionally, and dealing with guilt over a subordinate’s near-fatal shooting. Therapy sessions help somewhat, but Jesse’s job is on the line after the discovery of three corpses. A man’s body is recent, but the other two are the skeletal remains of Mary Kate O’Hara and Virginia Connolly, two 16-year-olds who vanished about 25 years earlier. The dead girls were close friends of Jesse’s number two, police officer Molly Crane, whose personal connection to the case complicates matters. Paradise’s political leaders are dismayed at the bad press the murders bring to the town, and Jesse’s given a tight deadline to clear everything up. The solution is a bit of a letdown, but Coleman succeeds in adding some needed depth to Jesse’s character. Agent: Helen Brann, Helen Brann Agency. (Sept.)
