Paradise, Massachusetts, police chief Jesse Stone
returns in a brilliant new addition to the New York
Paradise, Massachusetts, is preparing for the summer tourist
season when a string of car thefts disturbs what is usually a quiet
time in town. In a sudden escalation of violence, the thefts become
murder, and chief of police Jesse Stone finds himself facing one of
the toughest cases of his career. Pressure from the town
politicians only increases when another crime wave puts residents
on edge. Jesse confronts a personal dilemma as well: a burgeoning
relationship with a young PR executive, whose plans to turn
Paradise into a summertime concert destination may have her running
afoul of the law.
When a mysterious figure from Jesse''s past arrives in town,
memories of his last troubled days as a cop in L.A. threaten his
ability to keep order in Paradise-especially when it appears that
the stranger is out for revenge.
