Really liked the mystery until the very last moment (won't give it away)...but there were many ways that a certain someone could have heard a certain fact & it throws the whole structure of the tale out of whack...what happened which I won't tell you.

I DID listen to this on audio and the reader was just plain awful. From "J D Fletcher" to "Seth Hathlett" and several instances in which I know she read things backwards (can't believe the producer didn't catch it and make her do it over). Also
The Murder, She Wrote book series is based on the characters and settings of the long-running television series starring Angela Lansbury. Each book is similar to the show, in that they are all "written" by Jessica Fletcher, along with another author.

In this story, Jessica is asked by a lawyer friend in Boston to work as a jury consultant on a high-profile murder trial. But then the defendant's girlfriend -- his one alibi -- is killed. After that, the bodies start piling up, and Jessica nearly be
I loved this book so much that I finished it in few hours. It's Jessica Fletcher meets Law and Order. Jessica is helping a lawyer friend who is defending a famous and rich man indicted with the charge of murder of his brother. This time Jessica is a jury selection person. The plot is intriguing and Jessica uses her master mind to find the real culprit. But this time there is lot of court room drama. The novel features rich people and their lawyers and jury selection process and the overall feel ...more

Very good read

The book and plot kept you guessing the entire time. By the end of the book I was surprised by the outcome of suspects. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a true mystery.

I enjoyed it, honestly I'm using these Jessica books to distract me from reading a dozen other things. They're such short reads that I usually finish them in one sitting. I can't wait to read the next one the exerpt was juicy.

A line I highlighted. "Step right up and see the mystery writer-turned jury consultant and the alcoholic defense lawyer hang from their fingertips from the world's highest trapeze."

This is the ultimate comfort food book. It brought back memories of when I was little and watched Murder She wrote. It's a light easy read. I had no idea it was #6 in a series. (I hate reading things out of order). Other than my own personal aggervation from reading it out of order, I really liked it and will hunt for more of these at my library when I return this one.

My least favorite book in the Middle, She Wrote series thus far. I found it slow and a bit dull.
Didn't finish this book. Apparently it's a very young adult novel. Friend told me that they actually used to see these at junior high book fares with Nancy Drew. I tried. I love watching Murder She Wrote (cuz the inner me is an old lady) but the book just .... bit it.
This was the first book in this series that I read and it was good enough that I kept reading the series. It has a very warm spot in my heart. =o)
Oh J.B. Fletcher you wily ole' cat you. Loose in Boston & taking down swindlers, crooks and murderers. You're just the most.

A very good book with a little bit too many plot twists at the end, kind of confusing but very well written.
Read this book in one evening. I simply could NOT put this one down. Stayed up till 2 am reading it.
I really enjoyed this book, could not wait to finish it, to find out who did it.
A real page turner.
This book mentions Simmons as a list of colleges in Boston. Automatic thumbs up :)
The character McLoon has got to come back in another book! He was great!
A pleasant and easy read, but the ending was a little abrupt.
