Murder!

The USA Today bestselling series-more than 4.5 million copies in print

When Jessica Fletcher's nephew, Grady, asks her to visit him in New York City, she's happy to reunite. The production firm Grady works for is creating commercials featuring big-name celebrities, and he has proposed that Jessica star in one. She reluctantly agrees.

But when one of the most creative-and despised-bigwigs is found murdered on the set, there's a long list of suspects. And Jessica soon finds herself not just a witness in a murder case-but the only one who can uncover the killer...

Review:

"Where Jessica Fletcher goes, murder invariably follows, as shown in Bain's taut 31st mystery to feature the crime-solving character immortalized by Angela Lansbury on the small screen (after 2008's A Slaying in Savannah). While visiting her ad exec nephew, Grady Fletcher, and his family in New York City, Jessica agrees to appear in a TV commercial as one of several celebrities promoting an international credit card. Betsy Archibald, the creative director of the ad agency handling the shoot, makes the experience uncomfortable for all involved due to frequent tantrums. When Grady's nine-year-old son, Frank, disappears on the set while watching his great-aunt perform, his parents become frantic. Jessica and Grady's search reveals Betsy, dead from a nail-gun wound, but no Frank. Did the boy witness the murder? Jessica at first irritates the police detective in charge of the investigation, but later impresses him as she cracks the case in her typical no-nonsense style." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Jessica's Alaskan cruise is disrupted when Kathy Copeland joins her. Kathy's sister vanished from the very same vessel on a prior voyage. It seems her sister had gone in search of a family treasure dating back to the Gold Rush.

Synopsis:

The residents of Cabot Cove are pulling out all the stops for their 4th of July celebration. After a businessman's body is found on the evening of the fireworks show, Jessica Fletcher pores over a long list of potential suspects.
