Overview
Summer in Paradise, Massachusetts, is usually an idyllic season?--but not this time. A Hollywood movie company has come to town, and brought with it a huge cast, crew, and a troubled star. Marisol Hinton is very beautiful, reasonably talented, and scared out of her wits that her estranged husband's jealousy might take a dangerous turn. When she becomes the subject of a death threat, Jesse and the rest of the Paradise police department go on high alert.
And when Jesse witnesses a horrifying collision caused by a distracted teenage driver, the political repercussions of her arrest bring him into conflict with the local selectment, the DA, and some people with very deep pockets. There's murder in the air, and it's Jesse's reputation as an uncompromising defender of the law--and his life--on the line.

Brandman once again smoothly channels Robert B. Parker (1932–2010) in his second Jesse Stone novel (after 2011’s Robert B. Parker’s Killing the Blues), though Stone’s muted reaction to several dramatic events will strike some readers as inappropriate. Stone, the police chief of usually tranquil Paradise, Mass., personally witnesses a near-fatal car accident caused by 17-year-old Courtney Cassiday texting while driving. When Courtney’s powerful parents stymie his attempts to make serious charges against her stick, he stakes out the girl in the expectation that she’ll break the law again. Meanwhile, several Paradise residents report falsely inflated charges on their water bills—and violence threatens when a big-budget movie shoot comes to town, complete with a megastar who’s afraid her estranged husband is out to kill her. More is less as the unrelated story lines compete with each other for depth, even if the larger-than-life lead is able to take them all in stride. Agent: Helen Brann, Helen Brann Agency. (Sept.)
