The page numbers mentioned above would make sense if the book is considered as a specialized log book, not a standard novel. It wouldn't be likely that they had a book created just for this scene, so it's reasonable that that's the way it was actually numbered. So each SHEET is numbered, and removing two sheets after 171 would bring you to 174. See more »
Unlike the first reviewer, I felt the introspection and inner struggles portrayed by the plot through Tom Sellect were brilliant and compelling. The sub-plots with the dog, Steve, and the troubled young girl were engaging and poignant, adding much to deepen the characterization of Jesse and the overall enjoyment of the movie. I seldom rate movies above 6/10 but this is one of my favorite Jesse Stone movies, perhaps my top favorite, and it sits very high in my all-time movie ratings.
I'm very anxious to see if this quality and depth of character can prevail throughout the next 7 movies, which I absolutely will be sure to watch.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and Tom Selleck's talent for writing and acting is superb!!
