Audience Reviews for Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise


More Jesse Stone, this time in the 3rd go-round Stone is investigating the death of a 14-year old girl who "got around" and had a bad reputation around the community and even within her own family. At the same time, he's also investigating an older continuing domestic abuse case where the wife has just about had it with her drunk, abusive husband. The best one so far in my opinion.

Really interested Jesse Stone mystery movie as well as I just liked this. What makes this TV movie work is Tom Selleck's usual fine performance of a title role who is intelligent and determined yet stubborn and flawed. While most of the actors are good, another standout performance comes from William Devane as a therapist Stone's ex-wife recommends to help him stop drinking - a former cop who lost his job and his wife to his own alcohol problem. Another standout performance comes from the actor playing the Boston businessman with a bad reputation and a goon named Lovey.
The violence is minimal for most of the movie, though there is some blood in a couple of scenes.

Based on Jesse Stone Novel #3, Death In Paradise, was probably the best Jesse Stone book to make into a movie. On a cold rainy day, the body of a young, abused, teenage girl is found floating in the lake and Jesse gets obsessed with finding out why. As with most Robert B. Parker novels, the story is very solid, and this one was especially good, because it brings Jessie Stone right to the edge, and I feel like you really get to know him more intimately from this story. Tom Selleck, AKA Magnum P.I., once again is in a familiar role and makes the story that much stronger. I can't say much more without giving stuff away, but the ending is quite unexpected.
