A nor'easter uncovers the bodies of two girls gone missing from Paradise, Massachusetts twenty-five years earlier, bringing back a flood of memories for their friend Officer Molly Crane, and making their killers desperate to stay hidden.

As one might expect, Coleman seems more at ease in this, his second novel continuing Parker's Jesse Stone series. More impressive, though, are the tangible refinements: fewer viewpoints and locations than his first, Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot. These make Robert B. Parker's The Devil Wins the tauter tale that puts in sharper focus Coleman's gift for fleshing out characters.

Four years ago, I wrote that, with bin Laden's death, the anniversary of the September 11 attacks had a different tone for me.

This past May, I went to NYC for an Ace Atkins signing, bringing along my friends Andrew Carbone and John Ricotta. John works for Condé Nast out of One World Trade, and after the signing, he took us on an informal tour of the building.

It wasn't a dedicated stop by Ground Zero. We didn't pause long by the memorial pools, but it still made Andrew feel as if the attacks had happened days ago, not years. Like many, I'm sure, I have mixed feelings about the site. I wish the attacks had never happened, but the new building also attests to our recovery.
