A prequel to "Stone Cold" in the series of Jesse Stone novels by Robert B. Parker, the story picks up after Jesse Stone is fired from the Los Angeles Police Department. He becomes an unlikely candidate recruited by the town board of selectman to become police chief of Paradise, a small town on Boston's North Shore. The board hopes his failed experience will keep him from digging too deep into the town's secrets. Hungover on his first day on the job, he must investigate a domestic abuse case that ends up leaduing to a money laundering scheme perpetuated by a manager of a local bank.
How Tom Selleck's world-weary cop Jesse Stone became the police chief of sleepy Paradise, Mass., is revealed in this engaging prequel to the first made-for-TV Stone feature, Stone Cold. Selleck is once again well cast as the rough-around-the-edges Stone, whose drinking problem gets him ejected from the Los Angeles police force; he soon finds himself the head lawman in a small New England fishing village, where his slow dissolution continues until a routine domestic disturbance case reveals connections to money laundering and murder, with several of the town's most affluent names as possible suspects. Selleck is well-matched by veteran scene stealer Saul Rubinek, and there's good work by Polly Shannon as a city attorney who becomes Stone's romantic interest, and Stephen Baldwin as an ill-tempered local. Fans of author Robert B. Parker (on whose books the Jesse Stone films are based) and Selleck won't be disappointed by this smart thriller. --Paul Gaita

I think this is ALL due to the fact that as well as being the lead character, Tom Selleck also controls much of the production and scripts, based on very good novels. I suspect he also carefully control who else is cast, and everyone is believable, and play their roles superbly. A special mention for Kathy Baker, who was of course in 'Picket Fences', another superb series
You DO need to buy the DVDs in the correct order, as some stories cross-over with earlier ones, so to do this you need to carefully read the synopsis BUT note one of the (later) DVDs in the series is a pre-quel, so buy that first !
1. Tom Selleck is too old and too heavy for Jesse Stone.
2. The film makes no attempt to recreate the book's plot, cutting out huge chunks and only hinting at other bits of it.
However even if you know the book by heart you will forgive these failings. Because, apart from the above mismatches, Tom Selleck (an actor I have never had any time for) is absolutely terrific in the lead role: he gets right to the heart of the character within the first few frames and from that moment on you're quite willing to suspend disbelief.
Also, although Robert Parker is a great writer, his strengths are character and dialogue rather than plot: to be honest the film plot is much more convincing than the book and given the time constraints of the medium, they have packed lots in, including the best scenes and dialogue. Jesse's confrontation with Jo Genest is truly memorable, and large passages of dialogue are lifted straight from the book.
I read the books first and loved them: now I am watching the films and enjoying them just as much: how often can you say that?
What a wonderful surprise to find that he is a good actor after all.
The series is actually very basic. Cop with bad drinking problem (Selleck) moves to a new location and becomes chief of police. Boring? Heck no. A town mystery involves him in all sorts of human drama's and presents the reason for him to question his life.
There is a place for tears - his companion of ten years (dog) has to be euthanasiaed, a discovery of treachery and questions, questions, questions. The story grips you and keeps you enthralled to the end.The time spent watching was well worth it, as were the follow ups that I have been able to acquire.
Not a high powered blood and guts series, just good old fashion skulduggery and murder most foul. If you enjoy mystery and suspense, with a touch of human drama, a good series to add to your collection.
ps. I received this film with positively LIGHTNING SPEED !!! HURRAY FOR THE SELLER !!!!!
However, it is only truish to the book's plot ( making it rather one dimensional) and Tom Selleck is about 15 years too old and rather heavier than the book's Jesse Stone. In addition, the excellent actress playing Molly Crane is not actually representative of the character in the book (although a good substitute).
Even so well worth watching and the others in the series.
As for the film, the plot has been stripped down somewhat to fit into the 90 minute TV movie time frame, but it's certainly well worth the watch.
I definitely will be getting the other movies in the series.

Stunning series. Slightly melancholy - you really feel the unhappiness of the main character - but well filmed in gorgeous locations. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Shoe-aholic
