Police Chief Jesse Stone, who was suspended by the Paradise, Mass. Town Council, begins moonlighting for his friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, by investigating a series of murders in Boston, leaving Rose and Suitcase to handle a crime spree in Paradise on their own. Jesse pours his energy into his work in an effort to push away his twin demons: booze and women. When his investigation leads to notorious mob boss Gino Fish, Jesse's pursuit becomes hazardous. Written by
Jesse Stone our dour detective with a fondness for drink and seeing his shrink is back. So more long stares, more slow jazz music and every other cliché to remind the audience that this is not the high adrenaline Magnum but Tom Selleck the actor. However talking slowly and looking miserable does not make you an acting great.
Jesse Stone is suspended by Paradise town council itself looking like a rather corrupt bunch. This leaves Suitcase in temporary charge who is investigating a hold up of a convenience store. The state homicide boss, Captain Healy hires him as a consultant in the hunt for a suspected serial killer who as it turns out may be the secretary of the local boxing promoter and gangster Gino Fish played by William Sandler and maybe the more interesting character in the cast.
You can tell Stone is a great detective because he follows Fish's secretary and suddenly discovers that he has ended up in the gay area of town. It looks like its the first time he has ever realised there is a gay quarter!
Talking about sloppy writing I never did figure out how they managed to solve the general store subplot so conveniently.
