Police Chief Jesse Stone, who was suspended by the Paradise, Mass. Town Council, begins moonlighting for his friend, State Homicide Commander Healy, by investigating a series of murders in Boston, leaving Rose and Suitcase to handle a crime spree in Paradise on their own. Jesse pours his energy into his work in an effort to push away his twin demons: booze and women. When his investigation leads to notorious mob boss Gino Fish, Jesse's pursuit becomes hazardous.

"Jesse Stone: No Remorse" is a police procedural film from 2010, directed by Robert Harmon. The movie is the sixth installation in the Jesse Stone film series, based on the characters created by Robert B. Parker in his Jesse Stone novels. Canadian actor Tom Selleck plays the titular character, Jesse Stone, a hard-boiled investigator handling problems both personal and expert.

In "Jesse Stone: No Remorse", our lead character Jesse Stone is suspended forever due to drinking in the work environment, which leads him into a depressive ditch. Shifting his focus, he begins investigating a series of murders in Boston for Captain Healy, played by Stephen McHattie. The movie begins with a mysterious character, exposed later as Reginald, strolling through a car park and performing a man with a single shot, setting the tone for the series of similar criminal activities that follow.

On the other hand, Jesse's life in the town of Paradise continues, albeit not efficiently. His replacement, William Butler, played by Jeff Geddis, is not managing his tasks well, and the town's selectwoman, Carter Hanson, played by Leslie Hope, tries to illicitly fire Jesse permanently.

Secret Unfolds
While Jesse is looking into the strange patterns of the Boston murders, the suspects grow wilder. No normal guy, the killer's presence, ends up being more and more apparent as the murders become more frequent and gruesome. The victims' only commonality is their area throughout Christmas time, leading Jesse to think they were being stalked.

Jesse begins piecing together fleeting looks and whispers about a possible hit man, operating so discreetly that he stays almost unnoticeable to the world. He teams with Lt. Sydney Greenstreet, played by William Sadler, using his previous experience and instincts to filter through all the deceptive ideas and identifies on Reginald's (the strange killer) trajectory.

Last Showdown and Ending
Jesse's investigation finally results in a confrontation with the hitman. He sets a trap, baiting Reginald with the aid of Officer Simpson, played by Kohl Sudduth. The suspenseful face-off is rapidly over with Jesse shooting Reginald dead when he attempts to target Simpson.

Regardless of the victory, "Jesse Stone: No Remorse" ends in a discord. Jesse has actually fixed the Boston murders, but he is entrusted to an unpredictable future. With his task still hanging in the balance, the film ends on a melancholic note, hinting towards the intricacies the lead character might face in the next film.
