The Paradise Men's Softball League has wrapped up another game, and Jesse Stone is lingering in the parking lot with his teammates, drinking beer, swapping stories of double plays and beautiful women in the late-summer twilight. But then a frightened voice calls out to him from the edge of a nearby lake. There, two men squat at the water's edge. In front of them, facedown, was something that used to be a girl. The local cops haven't seen anything like this, but Jesse's L.A. past has made him all too familiar with floaters. This girl hadn't committed suicide; she hadn't been drowned: she'd been shot and dumped, discarded like trash. Before long it becomes clear that she had a taste for the wild life; and her own parents can't be bothered to report her missing, or even admit that she once was a child of theirs. All Jesse has to go on is a young man's school ring on a gold chain, and a hunch or two.

I've read 3 Jesse Stone novels. Actually I'm in the middle of reading the 3rd now. I thought I'd found a new favorite author. Especially love the dialogue. But...........I am already so sick of the endless interplay between Jesse and his ex-wife. OMG. They discuss their relationship and sex lives. And their love for each other. He professes his love for his ex-wife to whoever happens to be his current lover. On an on and on. After a while (3 books) it just becomes sick, sick and unbelievable, sick, sick, boring, repetitive, sick, sick kill her off, please.

Saw one of the movies too. Quite liked it. Liked Tom Selleck. And I've never been a Tom Selleck fan. He is too old for the character in the book but that needn't affect the role he played in the movie.
