I think I'd enjoy the Paradise series as a tv series, the latest Tom Seleck tv movies have been a trial run for a weekly series. Hope it works out

People who like Robert B. Parker should love this one; it is vintage Parker. The spartan dialogue, minimal descriptions that almost read like a screenplay. Jesse Stone struggles with addictions: alcoholism, his ex-wife, and the knowledge that his job as police chief of a small town north of Boston is is last shot at salvaging what is left of a career. Not a "great" book, but a great "read" and arguably the best of the Jesse Stone series.

Great characters (except for Jenn, get kind of tired of her), good stories and keeps you turning the pages and can finish in one day.

Couldn't put it down! The crime solving keeps me hooked even though the self-analysis and the whole Jenn thing wear a little thin. Couldn't give it fewer than five stars, though, considering it came in yesterday's mail, I picked it up at 8:30 last night and am posting it this morning!

Good plot and good ending.

This is a quick, easy read. The dialog is more laconic than the Spenser series by Parker, but just as entertaining. A little home spun philosophy is thrown in, but nothing too deep. Having Tom Selleck play Jesse Stone (the main character) on TV has enhanced my enjoyment of this series,
