Derived from the mind of the famous author, Robert B. Parker, the fictional character Jesse Stone is not the typical chief of police. Born and raised in Arizona and California, Jesse originally set out in his career to be a minor league baseball shortstop, but injured the shoulder of his throwing arm. He becomes an alcoholic and loses his job as a homicide detective for the Las Angeles Police Department. In the beginning of this book series, Jesse starts out to be about 35 years old. With no light at the end of the tunnel to be seen, Jesse is surprised when he is hired as chief of police for the small town of Paradise, Massachusetts based on the actual town of Swampscott, Massachusetts. After showing up to the interview intoxicated, Jesse is unaware that he was only hired because the corrupted president of the town council felt he would be easily controlled.
