"When a body is discovered at the lake in Paradise, Police Chief Jesse Stone is surprised to find he recognizes the murder victim--the man had been at the same AA meeting as Jesse the evening before. But otherwise, Jesse has no clue as to the man's identity. He isn't a local, nor does he have ID on him, nor does any neighboring state have a reported missing person matching the man's description. Their single lead is from a taxi company that recalls dropping off the mysterious stranger outside the gate at the mansion of one of the wealthiest families in town... Meanwhile, after Jesse survives a hail of gunfire on his home, he wonders if it could be related to the mysterious murder. When both Molly Crane and Suitcase Simpson also become targets, it's clear someone has an ax to grind against the entire Paradise Police Department"-- Provided by publisher.

Mike Lupika's writing in FOOL'S PARADISE continues to do a very credible job of keeping Jesse Stone's character almost exactly as it was when Robert B. Parker was writing the series (this is Lupika's 6th Jesse Stone book since Parker died). It is a well written story with great character development and interaction. Fun story line that includes resurrecting and old case in which Jesse and Molly were integrally involved, and which almost costs both of them their lives in this story. It also features a Jesse who goes the whole book without having an alcoholic drink, though he struggles every day with his past addiction. Great read; even better, a fun read. Enjoy.
