    Product Code: ATWWE
    Paperback
    Jesse Stone is an ex LA cop who has taken the job of police chief in Paradise, Massachusetts. His drinking and his damaged relationship with his wife, define him as much as his supreme skill at policing his patch. When Crow, an Apache hitman, turns up in Jesse Stone's office, he is intrigued and very much on his guard. Ten years before, Crow was part of a gang that had taken a woman in the town hostage when a bank raid went wrong. The hostages were released unharmed, thanks to Crow's moral view that you didn't kill women, but he also got away with enough money not to have to work again. So why is Crow back in town? Why has he come to see Jesse? And why has he taken a job of kidnapping a young girl and her mother? All questions to which Jesse has to find answers as things start to go badly wrong in Paradise.

    Robert B. Parker

    Product Code: ATWWC
    Paperback
    Heidi Bradshaw is wealthy, beautiful, and well connected. She's also a notorious gold digger only recently separated from her latest husband - and she's just hired Spenser as a stand-in spouse for her daughter's wedding. It's not his usual kind of assignment, but Spenser has no reservations about accepting, especially after ensuring that his beloved Susan Silverman is also on the guest list. It should be a straightforward job: look after the mother of the bride, enjoy a few drinks and most importantly, spend some quality time with Susan. But then Spenser's old nemesis Rugar - the Gray Man - arrives. A storm, a kidnapping, and a series of murders tear apart what should be a joyous occasion, and Rugar is seemingly at the centre of it all. The only thing is that the perpetrator's apparent sloppiness is not Rugar's style, as Spenser knows from past encounters. With six dead bodies and more questions than he can handle, Spenser begins a search for answers - and the Gray Man.

    Paradise, Massachusetts, is gearing up for the busy summer season when a spate of car thefts places its quiet, tourist-friendly reputation in jeopardy. Jesse Stone fears an automobile theft gang has set up shop in town, and the silver-tongued, heavy-handed police chief vows to put a stop to their activity. Almost as soon as he starts tackling this threat, another materializes: one of a more personal nature. An old enemy, hell-bent on revenge, is fresh out of prison. Thus begins a tale of proactive policing and personal paranoia, in which Stone finds himself defending himself, his patch and - before long - his latest squeeze. In Killing the Blues, Michael Brandman combines all of Parker's tried and tested ingredients to create a highly enjoyable and authentic Jesse Stone thriller.

  • Classic Robert B. Parker

    Robert B. Parker

    Product Code: ABAGH
    Paperback
    In PROMISED LAND Spenser is hired by Harvey Shepard to find his missing wife. The case seems relatively straightforward at first, but Spenser suspects that there are more dangerous forces at work - and that 'Promised Land', a dodgy real-estate company, is involved. A dark story of murder and redemption unfolds against what Spenser ironically thinks of as the real Promised Land, the bleak landscape of Cape Cod. PROMISED LAND won the Edgar Award for Best Novel in 1977. LOOKING FOR RACHEL WALLACE sees Spenser hired to protect a lesbian feminist activist, the eponymous Rachel Wallace. After his protection gets in the way of her protest, she fires him. Shortly afterwards, she is kidnapped. Though no longer officially employed to protect her, Spenser feels duty-bound to find her. Murder follows, and behind it all lies a family who blame Wallace for, among other things, turning their daughter (and sister) into a lesbian, and one of Wallace's lovers.
