Jesse Stone comes out of involuntary retirement after the sheriff who replaced him exploded in their police car. The other officers Jesse worked with have left the department so he is forced to solve the crime on his own.
When the man who replaced Jesse as Paradise Police Chief was killed when his car exploded, Jesse is asked to return and he does. So he goes to the crime scene and the evidence leads people to believe that the man may have been corrupt. And Jesse, who didn't like him because he took his job, says that he is allowed the benefit of the doubt. Jesse finds himself alone because Suitcase and Rose left when the other Chief was there. Jesse suspects that Hasty might know something, and a guy is following Jesse.Written by
Toward the end of this movie Jesse Stone looks at his wrist watch. It's a close up shot and he's wearing a silver Rolex. The circumference of the watch is half red and half blue, with even numbers displayed 2 through 24. It's the same watch Tom Selleck wore in Magnum P.I. that originally belonged to his characters father. It can be seen in great detail in the fourth season episode "Home from the Sea" and throughout the Magnum seasons. See more »
The Massachusetts automobile inspection sticker is on the wrong side of the windshield. The sticker has been on the right (passenger) side of the windshield since at least 1960. See more »
Nice scenery and atmosphere, but not much of a story
This show starts out with a bang, literally. In a small, coastal town, two policemen die in a car bombing while out on a routine call. That certainly got my attention. Retired L.A. detective Jesse Stone is appointed to investigate. After that, the story wanders. We get to meet the various locals who live in the gloomy community with its rocky coast and gray weather, a place which has clearly seen better days. It's filled with cynical people one comes to expect in a movie like this. As expected, Stone (played well enough by Tom Sellink) asks questions of people, trying to find clues. As far as I could tell, but only finds little hints. In fact, the investigation doesn't go anywhere until the last half hour and the ending was very rushed. It also seems as if a sequel is being set up at the end.
