This is the third book in Parker's Jesse Stone series, in which Stone, the chief of police in Paradise, MA, is still trying to deal with his alchoholism, an ex-wife from whom he is not completely separate, and a dead girl whom no one will acknowledge. This is written in Parker's signature style: lots of short chapters, smart dialogue and snappy dialog.
