Police Chief Jesse Stone has a problem. Actually, several problems: dead bodies turning up, and no clues. A man takes his dog out for a run on the beach, only to be discovered hour later--with two holes in his chest. A woman drives her Volvo to the mall to do some grocery shopping, and is found dead, and never makes it back to her house. Investigating a serial killer in an affluent suburban town is difficult, and with the added pressures from the town selectmen and media, the heat is turned up on Jesse. The harder these outside forces push against him, the more Jesse retreats into himself, convinced--despite all the odds--that it's up to him alone to stop the killing.

This is a real page turner; a quick read. The crisp and often funny banter in the dialogs is enjoyable. Reminds me of the detectives of bygone days such as Sam Spade. Good to read the Jesse Stone books starting from the first book in the series because you learn a little more about the regular characters as you go.

Author is very adept at portraying the lead characters dry sense of humour. I laughed out loud at some of it.
