I love the Jesse Stone movies that were made. However, I didn't like the bad language in the book.

jesse stone series
Was looking on Netflix one day for a movie to check out and came across "Stone Cold" starring Tom Selleck. Thought to myself -- sounds interesting -- but for a made-for-tv movie, I thought it was great. I discovered in was based on a novel by Robert B. Parker which was indeed one of a series with the main character Jesse Stone who is and ex-LA cop now small town chief of police. Well - I found myself wanting a more - so I started reading the series from the beginning with Trouble in Paradise being book 2. And can't wait to read #3. This series was also made into 7 tv movies and though they aren't filled with Hollywood special effects - I think both books and movies are excellent. Robert Parker also is the author of a series with another character Spenser - a Boston PI. Also which a hit tv series was made starring Robert Urich -- Spenser for hire.

Love Jesse Stone
Not as good as Night Passage, but still pretty damn enjoyable.

Trouble in Paradise
Having first seen the Jesse Stone series on t.v., I found I wanted to read the books and see how they compare to the movies. I find I am enjoying the books just as much as the movies. If you haven'e seen the made for tv movies, I would recommend them as well.
