Tom Selleck returns tonight (Sunday, CBS, 9pm) in "Jesse Stone: Thin Ice," the sixth film in which he plays a small town police chief created by the late author Robert B. Parker.
Or in this case, a somewhat former small town police chief.
When we meet him in this film, Stone is suspended and fairly certain he won't be returning to work with his colleagues Rose Gammon (Kathy Baker) and Luther Simpson (Kohl Sudduth).
It's an especially bad time for the little Paradise department to be short-handed; someone has viciously beaten and killed a convenience store clerk, and Luther, as temporary police chief, is in over his head when it comes to solving the case.
Meanwhile, Stone gets some consultant work from his friend in Boston, Commander Healy (Stephen McHattie) who needs help dealing with a string of seemingly random murders.
