Night Passage

Night Passage

Author(s): Robert B Parker

Location(s): Massachusetts

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Modern



Told in short, crisp chapters, it’s the story of Jesse Stone, a 34-year-old ex-cop who just lost his LAPD job and his marriage due to a drinking problem. The book opens as Stone leaves California for his new job as chief of police in the picturesque town of Paradise, Massachusetts.
But Paradise isn’t as placid as it seems–in fact, it’s a festering mass of petty corruption, right-wing militia, sexual scandal and bad guys who favour strong-arm tactics. Night Passage sets out a classic scenario: the lone lawman, new in town, must make his stand to clean the place up.
