3 posts | 8 read | 1 reading | 5 to read
After a busted marriage kicks his drinking problem into overdrive and the LAPD unceremoniously dumps him, the thirty-five-year-old Jesse Stone's future looks bleak. So he's shocked when a small Massachusetts town called Paradise recruits him as police chief. He can't help wondering if this job is a genuine chance to start over, the kind of offer he can't refuse. Once on board, Jesse doesn't have to look for trouble in Paradise: it comes to him. For what is on the surface a quiet New England community quickly proves to be a crucible of political and moral corruptionreplete with triple homicide, tight Boston mob ties, flamboyantly errant spouses, maddened militiamen and a psychopath-about-town who has fixed his violent sights on the new lawman. Against all this, Jesse stands utterly alone, with no one to trust; even he and the woman he's seeing are like ships that pass in the night. He finds he must test his mettle and powers of command to emerge a local heroor the deadest of dupes. As the flagship volume in a new series featuring a complex and engaging sleuth, Night Passage is cause for celebration.

He felt sorry that she was hurt, but it was an abstract sorry, more of an idea than a feeling. You need to be able to hear the truth, he thought. You can't hear the truth, you got nowhere to start.

"I'm telling you, there's something there."
"You can tell by just looking."
"Absolutely," Jesse said "I am wise in these matters."
"And why is that?"
"Because I am blessed with a penis," Jesse said.
"Yeah, and you think with it," Abby said. "Like every other man I know."
