Overview

Jessica Fletcher digs up a home-grown murder mystery down South in this brand-new installment in the USA Today bestselling series.

Jessica is saddened when her eccentric old friend Tillie Mortelaine passes away—and surprised to learn that Tillie has left her a million dollars. But there are strings attached. Jessica must use the money to help the literacy fund she and Tillie established years ago in Savannah, Georgia. And she will receive the money only if she can solve a mystery within the month: the murder of Tillie's fiancé, Wanamaker Jones.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Bain's 30th mystery based on the classic TV series Murder She Wrote(after Murder on Parade), Jessica Fletcher, Cabot Cove's crime-solving novelist, stands to inherit $1 million from the estate of her late friend, 91-year-old Tillie Mortelaine, if she can solve within a month the 1967 murder of Tillie's fiancé, Wanamaker Jones, who was shot during a New Year's eve party at Tillie's historic home in Savannah, Ga. Jessica soon settles into Mortelaine House, where she meets a number of odd tenants, including an eccentric professor at the Institute of Paranormal Relations and the younger man by some 20 years who was Tillie's second fiancé. Ferreting out who killed Wanamaker is tough work, but Jessica, as always, rises to the challenge. Ghostly assistance adds to the charm of the spunky sleuthing, though some readers may find the pacing a tad too sedate. (Oct.)

    an entertaining cerebral cold case whodunit

    Jessica Fletcher receives a call from a Savannah lawyer informing her that her friend nonagenarian Tillie Mortelaine died. The two women worked together decades ago on an literacy program that became the Georgia standard. Tillie left Jessica with a million dollars for their literary program based on a stipulation that inside of a month the New Englander discovers who murdered the deceased¿s fiancé Wanamaker Jones forty years ago if Jessica fails the program gets nothing.------------ Four decades ago the police got nowhere with their inquiries as those living in the house closed ranks against outsiders. Determined to solve the case as she has a million motives from various suspects, Jessica questions those people who were there and still alive today. While she investigates, two ghost hunters and a man claiming to be Tillie¿s fiancé get in her way Tillie¿s nieces are uncooperative as they believe Mrs. Fletcher will keep the money. Jessica ignores their slurs, but cannot disregard the attempts on her life or the ghostly happenings in Tillie¿s house. She is running out of time to put together the puzzle as those central to solving it wants the money and obviously Jessica to fail.------------- As Tillie and series fans know Mrs. Fletcher is a contemporary New England Miss Marple. Her investigation is difficult because of the time lapse and the lack of cooperation of those involved. Whereas her motive is to insure the literacy program is funded, their motives with one exception are to inherit the money the lone exception would be the killer if he or she is still alive. The police support the family in that they resent this northern outsider intruding even on a cold case however she begins to win some of them over with her methods and they admire her moxie. This is one of the best cases Mrs. Fletcher (and Donald Bain) has worked on as she emotionally grieves the death of her friend, which also reminds her of her own mortality while working on an entertaining cerebral cold case whodunit.------------ Harriet Klausner

    NOT UP TO USUAL STANDARDS!

    This book was a major disappointment, not up to the usual interesting read as a lover of Jessica Fletcher expects! The plot was so far fetched so as to be unbelievable! I do hope this is just one bad book and not the writer having gone dry. I am now reading "Murder On Parade" in the same series & so far, so good. I'll write a review once I am done!
