Product Description

Tom Selleck returns as Paradise's anguished former Chief of Police, Jesse Stone, in his most gripping mystery yet. Cindy Van Aldan was like a daughter to Jesse. Now she's dead. Although all signs point to a suicidal drug overdose-a checkered history riddled with addiction, associations with homicidal mobsters and an involvement in prostitution-Jesse knows his friend better than that. This time it's personal, and Jesse will stop at nothing to avenge the lost innocence and subsequent death of the young girl he once mentored.


Though perhaps not as beloved as his Spenser novels, the series of books Robert B. Parker wrote about Jesse Stone, the depressed, alcoholic police chief of a small Massachusetts seaside town, earned him a similarly devoted following. CBS began adapting the novels as a vehicle for Tom Selleck in 2005, closely following Parker's formula and style, to the delight of many fans. Innocents Lost is the seventh in the intermittent TV-movie series (an eighth, Benefit of the Doubt, will appear in 2012) and the third that features an original Jesse Stone story (cowritten by Selleck) that is not directly based on a Parker novel. For those just being introduced to Jesse Stone, starting out well into the series with Innocents Lost may be slightly bewildering considering the many multiple plot threads that have carried through from the beginning. But the characters have a lot of depth from the get-go, especially Selleck's Stone, who we quickly discover has been forced out of his job as Paradise police chief and is not faring so well in the mental health department. Though the scenery of the fictional village is nothing but picturesque (Halifax, Nova Scotia, stands in for the rocky Atlantic fishing village of Paradise), the atmosphere is fairly gloomy throughout. Jesse is doing his best to continue his ascent from a depression and drinking problem that began years earlier after his divorce. But even though he's often quick with a quip and carries the charismatic appeal of Tom Selleck-ness wherever he goes, watching Innocents Lost is not the way to spend an evening if you're looking to cheer yourself up. Jesse is still friendly with his former cop colleagues (the excellent Kathy Baker and Kohl Sudduth), but not so much with the new chief, who's been installed primarily based on nepotism (his father-in-law is the president of the town council). He's also still doing some contract work for the Massachusetts State Police homicide squad and his pal Commander Healy (Stephen McHattie), is again palling around with the shady underworld boss Gino Fish (William Sadler), and is back talking to the grizzled psychotherapist Dr. Dix (William Devane). All these excellent supporting character actors add to the superb creative qualities of a story weaving two mysteries that Jesse becomes involved with: the suspicious death of a young girl he helped out a few years earlier, and the questionable guilt of a Boston murder suspect that Healy believes is being prosecuted in error. Jesse handily solves both cases, but the successes do not make him any happier. Neither does a casual affair with the gorgeous secretary of his pal and former nemesis Hasty Hathaway (Gloria Reuben and Saul Rubinek, both also first-rate). Even his loveable golden retriever Reggie can't snap him out of his depressive fog. There's not a lot of action, but there is a high level of dramatic integrity in the dialogue and character interaction that will make fans eager for more unpredictable exploits from Jesse Stone, both personally and professionally. --Ted Fry

Following 2010's "No Remorse," Tom Selleck returns (and shares a writing credit) for the latest installment of the Jesse Stone saga in "Innocents Lost." In this, the seventh outing, Selleck is more world weary and introspective than usual. I don't know that there has ever been a serialized crime drama that is so reliant on quiet moments and character contemplation. And, in truth, it is this moody thoughtfulness that has really made this series of movies strikingly unique in the modern television landscape. Lacking hysterics and over-the-top action set pieces, the Jesse Stone series is a quietly compelling throw-back to when stories and people mattered more than special effects. And, as always, the icing on the cake is the pitch perfect Tom Selleck who paints Jesse as both lovable and excruciatingly frustrating. I, personally, think that Stone is Selleck's best role--it is no wonder that he has revived him seven times.

"Innocents Lost" really breaks no new ground, just tells another chapter. Stone, now retired, is still trying to find an inner equanimity and peace. Seeing an unorthodox therapist, consorting with a younger woman, staying grounded with his old colleagues--Jesse's existence is a quiet one. When a young girl whom Jesse feels responsible for ends up dead in an apparent overdose, he feels deep guilt and sets out to determine what went awry. He is also asked to consult on a murder case in the city where the police feel that their suspect is innocent. Retirement doesn't seem so uneventful after all! The story leads to some unexpected places--as the girl's life spiraled out of control, several key factors and nefarious influences led her astray. But how far is Jesse willing to take his off-the-books investigation, and to what purpose?

Tom Selleck IS Jesse Stone! 'Innocents Lost' brought the characters together and, I believe, more relaxed in their roles, like old shoes that finally fit after a few stretches of the leather. Please, don't throw them away, because we want more Jesse Stone and Co.! Joe the Dog steals the show! Even he is beginning to show his age with a little graying around his muzzle.

The story is strong, subtle and makes you want more. Stone, now retired, is still seeking justice for a crime that will, probably, never be solved. The new Chief doesn't get much air-time, which is a good thing! Rose's character is getting stronger, but still vulnerable. She walks the line and delivers for Stone. Suits is more settled and endearing. Thankfully, for me, there is only one short phone call between 'the ex' and Jesse. The ending is oustanding!

For anyone who has read much of the late Mr. Robert Parker, the speech patterns were his signature, used for all major characters in his books, i.e., Spencer, Randall and Stone. It's quirky, but always seems to work...for me.

I will purchase 'Innocents Lost' as soon as it's available!

Fans of this serious deserve a medal for being the most patient fans on the planet. Most fans have had to resort to DVD supplements (or the Hallmark Channel) to even catch all the installments. Luckily places like Office Depot and big chain Grocery Stores carry most of the DVD's cheap. CBS hasn't been very helpful, the first two episodes were aired in reverse order and the latest two episodes (parts 6 and 7) put on a shelf for over a year while negotiating with Tom Selleck to do the TV series BLUE BLOODS. Part 6 ultimately aired with little fanfare in a terrible time slot and Part 7 finally found a decent home (and will be released on DVD August 2nd, probably). Even if you were able to catch all of them on TV the time period between films was pretty lengthy to remember some of the plot points in the continuing story line. The 6th film, SEA CHANGE, for example, the one that sat on the shelf and then given a bad time slot, brought back guest characters from all the previous episodes. Nifty idea if you watch all the DVD's in a month, but not spread out over 3 years. For the record in case you need to catch up, the story order of the DVD's (not the order they were aired or related to the book title order) are:
1. Night Passage
2. Stone Cold
3. Death in Paradise
4. Sea Change
5. Thin Ice
6. No Remorse
7. Innocents Lost.
So are they worth it? Yes. They are character-driven moody dramas with just enough quirky moments to add some jokeless humor. Jesse Stone is a cop and a drunk who goes from being an LAPD robbery-homicide detective to police chief of a small town in Massachusetts. He solves all the cold cases (unsolved crimes), including the grisly ones that no one in town even knew existed, merely as a way to pass the boredom. This actually upsets the status quo of townsfolk that would rather leave their not-so-peaceful past buried. Story lines unexpectedly spill into sequel films making this a continuous story-line series.

This high quality series continues with no let-down whatsoever. To the contrary, the plot and ambience are satisfying in a very dramatic way, the characters are well drawn, the music is moody and the dog is fantastic as usual. For some reason, however, this film endows the actors with some quirky speech mannerisms which can be somewhat distracting. But one can easily put up with all of that given the excellent mix of cinematic sophistication and entertainment which is quite rare for a prime time television movie.

Amazon is not always the best deal in town. Yes they are great, but don't expect them to be the lowest price 24/7/365. You see a better deal, don't apologize, GET IT!
