Adapted from Robert B. Parker’s award-winning series of crime books, all nine Jesse Stone movies have been brought together in a limited edition collection for the first time in Australia. Stone is a former minor league baseball player who was forced to resign from the LAPD robbery-homicide division because of his ongoing battle with alcoholism. Reassigned to the other side of the country he becomes police chief in the docile New England hamlet of Paradise, Massachusetts. He is hired by a corrupt councilman who believes Stone can easily be controlled. As he battles alcohol, negotiates a complicated relationship with his ex-wife Stone soon discovers the town’s ties to the mob, a white supremacist group and a deeply unsettling homicide rate.

Many of which have been adapted for television and film including Ed Harris’s acclaimed The Appaloosa. All the hallmarks of his work, tense situations, a damaged hero and compelling, unpredictable plotting are on show in movies such as Night Passage, Thin Ice and Benefit of the Doubt.
The memorable cast of regulars includes Kathy Baker, William Sadler, Viola Davis, Saul Rubinek and William Devane.
