In JESSE STONE: THIN ICE, Paradise, Mass. Police Chief Jesse Stone
finds himself in trouble with the Town Council when he inadvertently
becomes involved in a shoot-out on a Boston street. His friend, State
Homicide Commander Healy, is seriously wounded and Jesse comes under
investigation by the Boston Police Department's Internal Affairs Division,
which causes him to be away from Paradise for extended periods of time.
Jesse further alienates the Council by firing the Paradise Police
Department's most prodigious ticket writer, resulting in a considerable
loss of revenue for the town. His issues with the Council are further
exacerbated when a celebrated out-of-towner shows up in Paradise in search
of her missing child, and Jesse agrees to take her case. His continued
defiance of the Council's wishes now begins to jeopardize his very job.
