Customer Review

A friend mentioned on an Amazon mystery thread that they had to DVR SHERLOCK on Masterpiece Theater on May 20 because JESSE STONE was on simultaneously. There's something as good as SHERLOCK on? This piqued my interest so as a mystery aficionado streamed this film which is the prequel to the series.

Even though this is the prequel and the second show in the series, I would watch this first as it shows the backstory regarding how Stone ventured from CA to MA to be chief police there. The major characters are introduced.

Wow! It totally exceeded expectations. Stunning scenery (supposed to be norther MA but actually Canada), witty dialog, complex characters, believable acting, intriguing plots, haunting musical theme, pacing which kept you interested....don't know why I'm just hearing about this series.

Haven't read the author Robert Parker's books but now I want to--he had a PhD in English Lit and taught, along with writing 50 novels.

Selleck acts, produces and helps write the teleplays and you sense someone who cares about the production oversees the details. It emanates quality. It is better than many movies I have been to. Like other reviewers, wish they would produce more of these per year whilst retaining the quality.

Love the set design, especially the Chief's office and home with the cracked leather chairs.

If you like a warm, intelligent, imperfect, masculine, astute, humane, non-political chief of police as protagonist, check this series out.
