Overview

In the newest novel in the USA Today bestselling series, Jessica Fletcher must diagnose a killer with a taste for bad medicine…

Jessica’s latest book tour brings her to Tampa, Florida, where she meets up with an old friend, Cabot Cove’s Dr. Seth Hazlitt. Seth is in town visiting Alvaro Vasquez, a renowned physician who is developing a potentially groundbreaking cure for Alzheimer’s disease. If he’s successful, his American backers stand to make millions. But there’s a growing fear that the drug may fall into the wrong hands.

Jessica attends a party at Vasquez’s lavish home, but the celebration ends abruptly when Vasquez seems to be struck by lightning. Jessica and Seth do some digging into the physician’s checkered past and learn that his death was no accident. As they work together to find a cure for the common killer, they become enmeshed in international intrigue involving the local police, the FBI, and the CIA—and begin to wonder whether they’ll ever see Cabot Cove again.

When her book tour ends, Jessica Fletcher decides to spend a few days in Tampa, Florida with her old friend, Seth Hazlitt. Seth is visiting his friend, Dr. Vasquez, a renowned physician who defected from Cuba. Dr. Vasquez is working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease. At a party thrown for Jessica, she meets Dr. Vasquez's wife who is afflicted with the disease. As Dr. Vasquez goes out to smoke a cigar, a thunderstorm rolls in. Everyone runs inside but Dr. Vasquez, who collapses dead as lightning strikes. Was it a freak accident, or was it murder? Did someone want him dead to steal his research? With Jessica's help, Seth Hazlitt is determined to find the truth. This adult cozy mystery was a very relaxing read. I loved the way this book highlighted the Cuban-United States relationship. Revisiting old characters from the TV show is always a thrill. The way the author described the characters made them alive in my imagination. The one drawback: the plot was a little predictable.

This was a fun book to read and you could put the faces of the characters from the TV show on the characters in the book. You can't go wrong with these books. I hope Donald Bain keeps writing these books.

It is my sincere hope that this latest Jessica Fletcher book will be clean, decent, and also truly adult in the right sense of those words. All of Donald Baines books thus far have been beautifully written extremely interesting and exciting suspense thrillers. I hope emily Brightwell's latest effort is also the same wonderfully well written and captivating story I have loved before. I am always looking for exciting adult stories that are also perfectly safe to have in a home where there are children. Thanks, Bobbie Sena
