"Big-city anonymity is contrasted with small-town intimacy in the JESSE STONE series..."
In the first Jesse Stone movie to deviate from Robert Parker's novels and take the character in exciting new directions, Tom Selleck portrays the small-town police chief with the usual good humor Stone fans know and love--but also with a heavy heart and a heightened desire for justice following the attempted murder of his close friend, the captain. William Devane, Kathy Baker, and William Sadler co-star in this riveting mystery-thriller.
Jesse Stone is back! When his friend and fellow cop is shot during a visit to Boston, small town police chief Jesse Stone (Tom Selleck) risks his life and career to solve the crime while also investigating the disappearance of a missing child in this exciting fifth installment in the popular Jesse Stone movies based on the best-selling books by Robert B. Parker.
