Praise for Death in Paradise

“Stone is a deceptively complex character, one whose problems are both interesting and completely believable…another strong effort in what is already an impressive series.”—Library Journal

“Beautifully wrought…[an] immensely satisfying tale. Rarely if ever has Parker’s fiction conveyed with solemn intensity the challenge of living a good life in a world of sin. The book’s ultimate pleasure lies in the words, suffused with a tough compassion won only through years of living, presented in prose whose impeccability speaks of decades of careful writing.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“What’s so cool about Death in Paradise is watching Jesse Stone’s relentless pursuit of the bad guy.” —St. Petersburg Times

“Hard-hitting…and brutally frank…Parker reinvents, revises and reincarnates the hardball, tough-guy, deadpan mysteries of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. Death in Paradise is a tough, clear-eyed, sardonic look at life and the raw deals it can dish out.”—The Providence Sunday Journal

“If you love Parker, you’ll love this book. Jesse Stone is clearly in the Parker style.”—Calgary Herald

“James Ellroy-style dialogue…Like Jesse Stone’s beer, Parker’s novels can be quaffed with relish.”—The Ottowa Citizen

“[Parker’s] gift for creating engaging characters and involving the reader in their fate makes this…well worth your attention.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune
