This is number 2 in the series of made-for-television films featuring Jesse Stone. See more »
Joe Genest is shown threatening Jesse Stone with a revolver equipped with a suppressor (silencer). With the exception of obsolete Russian Nagant M1895, revolvers are not able to be suppressed because of the cylinder/barrel gap allows hot gas, and therefore sound, to escape. The use of a Nagant M1895 by a hit man would be nonsense. It is a collectible gun, ammo is not readily available, and the use of a common auto pistol with common ammo is what a hit man would use.

You alright, sir?
So, what are you doing here at 4 in the morning?
I'm a cop.
Got a badge?

From 2006, Jesse Stone: Night Passage introduces us to the characters in the subsequent films, and shows how Jesse came to be Sheriff of Paradise.
When the beloved Sheriff Lou Carson (Mike Starr) retires, Jesse Stone, who lost his job with LA Homicide for drinking on the job, is invited to interview. Jesse loads his dog Boomer into his truck and drives from LA to Massachusetts in order to interview. When he lands the job, he's instantly suspicious. "I wouldn't hire me," he says.
He uncovers corruption, which ultimately leads to murders.
Viola Davis is Molly Crane, who works in the Sheriff's office, as does Suitcase (Kohl Sudduth), Hasty Hathaway (Saul Rubinek) is head of the town council responsible for hiring Stone; Stephen Baldwin is wife beater and general bad guy Joe Genest; and Polly Shannon (Abby Taylor) is a woman Stone is seeing.
The Stone films are dark, and this one is especially sad. Good performances, though I'm not sure I would have cast Tom Selleck in such a dour part. He's always likable, but I'm not sure he's creating a specific character here, rather, just a generic depressed person.
