I have read all the novels and have seen all the movies with Tom Selleck. He will always be remembered as Magnum P.I., but Jesse Stone is his very best work. If you are looking for loads of action No Remorse will not fit the bill. It has excellent characters, very smart dialog and great performances. I am tired of reading how this series is slow. I don't want car chases and super human cops kicking down doors. Tom Selleck's Jesse is flawed, human and holding on for dear life. The supporting case is first rate, William Devane, Saul Rubinek (whose character is very much wounded like Jesse), Stephen McHattie as the State Homicide Captain, Kathy Baker as Rose and Kohn Sudduth as Luther are all excellent, nothing blazing, but the perfect touch by each in support of Tom Selleck. Another under rated performance is William Saddler as Gino Fish, his cat and mouse game with Jesse is always interesting to watch. In No Remorse, Gino lets his his guard down ever so slightly to Jesse, SLIGHTLY, their scenes together are superb. I look forward to Tom Selleck's Jesse Stone, is in many ways the movies characterizations are superior to the novels. That is very hard to do. In No Remorse Jesse is still suspended as Paradise Police Chief, he is drinking heavily. There is a crime wave in town and Luther and Rose are prohibited from talking to Jesse. Capt Healy calls on Jesse for help with apparent serial killer in Boston. The dialog and performances are excellent and my only disappointment was the ending. Of course the ending is the set up for the next Jesse Stone movie Innocents Lost. My final note is that this web site does not make note of this production. My understanding is that production is complete and another movie is being readied for filming.
