A Date with Murder

Murder She Wrote

Jessica Fletcher takes up the cause of her good friend Barbara "Babs" Wirth after Babs' husband Hal suffers a fatal heart attack that Jessica has reason to believe was actually murder. At the heart of her suspicions lies a sinister dating site Hal had used while he and Babs were having marital issues--a site that may be complicit in somehow swindling him out of millions.

Jessica's investigation reveals that Hal was far from the only victim and when his former business partner is also killed, a deadly pattern emerges. Jessica teams up with a brilliant young computer hacker to follow the trail but as she gets closer to the truth, two near misses force her to realize that she may very well be the next victim.

Every book in this series is, for me, a continuation of the television series. It never fails to amaze me how Jessica can solve the mystery and identify the killer on the slenderest of clues...but then again, she IS Jessica Fletcher! You don't have to be a fan of the old tv series to enjoy these fine, well plotted mysteries that take us back to Cabot Cove and a time when there was actually something good on television! Jon Land does an excellent job of "taking the baton" over from the late Donald Bain. The transition was seamless, and I look forward to Land injecting some new life and a fresh take into this tried and true series! You can't keep a good woman down, and there's lots of life in Jessica yet! Five paws!
