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. From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Coleman’s solid second Jesse Stone novel finds Parker’s flawed hero…still having trouble separating from his ex, connecting with people emotionally, and dealing with guilt over a subordinate’s near-fatal shooting…Coleman succeeds in adding some needed depth to Jesse’s character.” Publishers Weekly
The Devil Wins is such a winner of a novel that Parker’s loyal fans and Coleman’s new ones will be equally delighted by his skills. This series can run forever in these new capable hands and readers will eagerly await each new book about Jesse Stone. I know I will. The Huffington Post
“Small town, big secret, and a community’s shame. In the blink of an eye, Jesse goes from worrying about potential storm damage to investigating three homicides…suspenseful, melancholy examination of loss and how sometimes, despite our best efforts, the past refuses to stay buried, and it will certainly please fans still craving more of Parker’s characters.” Booklist
Coleman does a remarkable job of developing the character . . . Both a fine mystery story and a satisfying portrait of an emerging character that readers will look forward to hearing more from soon. Associated Press
