Overview

It’s a brand-new episode of the USA Today bestselling series—and Jessica Fletcher is finding out that some people in the movie biz can make you, break you, or just plain kill you…

Cabot Cove is about to be invaded—by Hollywood. One of Jessica’s older novels is being made into a big-budget movie. The producer has decided to shoot most of the film on location in town, since the book was loosely based on a murder that shocked Cabot Cove over a decade earlier.

The murder occurred when a judge was gunned down while walking her dog. The prime suspect: an enraged husband whom the judge ruled against in a child custody case. But further investigation pointed to the victim’s own husband—and ultimately to his mistress, accused of eliminating her rival.

Unfortunately, everyone on the set has a hidden agenda. A novice director wants his shot at the big-time. A fading star, making a comeback, has many unreasonable demands. Her astrologer sees trouble in the stars. And a stranger on the movie lot is stalking Jessica.

But fiction and reality fatally collide when the actress playing the judge is shot—the only witness her dog—and there’s a cast and crew of possible suspects. With tensions between locals and the Hollywood horde mounting, Jessica must find the killer before anyone else is left on the cutting-room floor.

MSW continues to be one of my favorate mystery series. The consistancy of the characters and who dunit mystery does not disappoint. When Jessica is back in her home town it feels like I have returned also. Although my time might be limited due to the high murder rate. Nora of CC

Murder, She Wrote: Close Up On Murder is the 40th book in the Murder She Wrote series. One of Jessica Fletcher's older books is being adapted to the big screen and Jessica has been hired to be a consultant to the scriptwriter. It will be a stormy filming as the star, Vera Stockdale, is being demanding on how she wants things to be in the movie. But when her body is found on the sound stage, filming in put on hold. Stockdale has a past of rubbing people the wrong way and this time she has pushed someone to far. So Jessica, with her sleuthing expertise and her friends in Cabot Cove are off on another mystery solving adventure. Most of the characters that we have learn to love from the television series are here, too. I enjoyed the book, but will say that I enjoyed watching the television series more.
