Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone confronts
a townâ€™s darkest secrets in the shocking new novel from the
New York Timesâ€“bestselling author and â€śAmericaâ€™s greatest
mystery writerâ€ť (The New York Sun).
Things are getting strange in Paradise, Massachusetts.
Police Chief Jesse Stone is called to the junior high
school when reports of lewd conduct by the schoolâ€™s
principal, Betsy Ingersoll, filter into the station.
Ingersoll claims she was protecting the propriety of her
students when she inspected each girlâ€™s undergarments in
the locker room. Jesse would like nothing more than to see
Ingersoll punished, but her high-powered attorney husband
stands in the way. At the same time, the women of Paradise
are faced with a threat to their sense of security with the
emergence of a tormented voyeur, dubbed â€śThe Night Hawk.â€ť
Initially, heâ€™s content to peer through windows, but as
times goes on, he becomes more reckless, forcing his
victims to strip at gunpoint, then photographing them at
their most vulnerable. And according to the notes heâ€™s
sending to Jesse, heâ€™s not satisfied to stop there. Itâ€™s up
to Jesse to catch the Night Hawk, before itâ€™s too late.
