"When a body is discovered at the lake in Paradise, Police Chief Jesse Stone is surprised to find he recognizes the murder victim--the man had been at the same AA meeting as Jesse the evening before. But otherwise, Jesse has no clue as to the man's identity. He isn't a local, nor does he have ID on him, nor does any neighboring state have a reported missing person matching the man's description. Their single lead is from a taxi company that recalls dropping off the mysterious stranger outside the gate at the mansion of one of the wealthiest families in town... Meanwhile, after Jesse survives a hail of gunfire on his home, he wonders if it could be related to the mysterious murder. When both Molly Crane and Suitcase Simpson also become targets, it's clear someone has an ax to grind against the entire Paradise Police Department"--… (mer)

After penning two Sunny Randle books, Lupika was evidently tapped to try a Jesse Stone novel on for size. Mike Lupica brings with him a little more internal dialogue than previous authors of the series (including Robert B Parker himself) but doesn't dilute the characters or story in an unfavorable way. As a die hard fan of Parker's original works I have followed with interest the continuation of his beloved series. My one criticism involves an abundance of referencing and unnecessary elaboration on the relationships between the various characters that populate the Parker universe. Long time fans already know these relationships and I suspect new readers don't much care. Still I give his efforts a thumbs up and look forward to reading his take on a actual Spencer novel. ( )

Synopsis: 'When a body is discovered at the lake in Paradise, Police Chief Jesse Stone is surprised to find he recognizes the murder victim--the man had been at the same AA meeting as Jesse the evening before. But otherwise, Jesse has no clue as to the man's identity. He isn't a local, nor does he have ID on him, nor does any neighboring state have a reported missing person matching the man's description. Their single lead is from a taxi company that recalls dropping off the mysterious stranger outside the gate at the mansion of one of the wealthiest families in town... Meanwhile, after Jesse survives a hail of gunfire on his home, he wonders if it could be related to the mysterious murder. When both Molly Crane and Suitcase Simpson also become targets, it's clear someone has an ax to grind against the entire Paradise Police Department.' From author website.

Review: Fairly good story, but knew early on who killed the victim and why. ( )

I hadn't realized this book was part of a long series, when I started it. While I was able to enjoy it and follow along, it is clear, that I would have enjoyed it even more if I had some of the background. There were a lot of references, that didn't mean much to me.
That said, this is a good book. Jesse Stone is the Chief of Police of a small-town, Paradise, MA. He is a recovering alcoholic, still struggling every day, but making it. His force is a family to him.
A body is found near a lake, and it ends up being someone Jesse had seen the night before at an AA meeting. Who is this man? Where is he from? Why did he come here?
Determined to give this nameless man justice, Jesse and his team set to work. For the longest time, no headway seems to be made. Then, the force members themselves become targets of crime. Are these connected? There are a few breaks that help Jesse start to unravel the crimes. The action is fast paced and it's a good read. ( )

Hits enough of the beats from Parker’s original to be worth the time, but just barely.

Spends way too much time referencing, recalling, explaining the Spenser / Stone milieu.

Male-wish fulfillment literature gets old fast, too. ( )

I have enjoyed the Jesse Stone series and eagerly anticipate each new offering, but Fool’s Paradise was a rather dull disappointment. Sunny Randal is back in the picture, and repeated conversations involving some combination of Sunny, Molly, and Jesse form a substantial part of the story. These tepid conversations are a slog to get through. The efforts to depict banter between Sunny & Molly are so embarrassingly lame they fall short of even interesting. When these characters are not engaged in conversation, they are often involved in tedious introspection and self-analysis. Cameo appearances by Vinnie and Dix, long-time bit players, seem to function more to remind readers that they exist.

I persisted through to the end—my bad—but reading Fool’s Paradise was an “I can’t wait for it to be finished” experience. ( )
