The character of Jesse Stone, a deeply troubled man, was a departure for the author. Parker, comparing Stone to Spenser, the protagonist for his first series and the one for which he was best known, said "Jesse is a much more damaged individual who is coming to terms with himself as he goes along...". Jesse is an alcoholic LAPD homicide detective turned Paradise, Massachusetts police chief. The TV movies capture the essence of Stone with their deeply atmospheric settings and haunting music.
Jesse Stone is one troubled man you will definitely want to get to know. Check out the Parker novels and also the TV movies.
