Jesse Stone: Lost In Paradise (2015/Sony DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B Extras: D Telefilm: B+

Things are quiet in Paradise, so quiet Police Chief Jesse Stone decides to take on a cold case from Boston. The "Boston Ripper", the killer is already caught and behind bars for life for the 3 murders, but there was 4th murder with same MO, Stone believes it wasn't done by the same man. As he reopens the investigation, he discovers that someone will do anything to keep him from finding out the truth ...even kill in Jesse Stone: Lost In Paradise (2015).

Police Chief Jesse Stone (Tom Selleck) has cleaned up the town Paradise so well, he has to go to other towns to find and fight crime (making him better than all the detectives on MidSomer Murders combined!). As he investigates an old cold case he discovers one case that hasn't been close because it was never proven it was done by the same killer ...and nobody seems to care since the 'Boston Ripper' was caught and the murders stopped. But when he discovers missing files, reports he begins to suspect there is another killer specially since the 'Boston Ripper' has denied it wasn't his handy work...

Based on Robert Parker's book Lost in Paradise, Tom Selleck plays a wonderful stereotypical old policeman who won't give in till he discovers the truth, even if the world say he is wrong. He discovers a cover-up up within police force, and continues to search at the risk of his own life.

As the series continues, the look stays the same as demonstrated by the anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 presentation, but this is softer than it ought to be. So when the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix sounds this good, why no Blu-ray or extras?
