I have read ALL the Murder, She Wrote books and was not aware that this book had been printed before. That does answer my question about the fact that she did not know George Sutherland, when in fact she meet him before in the series. But that does not explain one paragraph that shows an inaccuracy to the television series. The book jacket states that the book (as well as all the books in the series) are based on the T.V. series. When talking with Maria about the difficulty making a life as an actress, she states that the only way she made it financially as a beginning writer was that her husband (Frank) made sure "the refrigerator had food in it" while she tried to sell her stories. NO!! She did not begin writing until Frank died!! And is anyone else bothered by the fact that she calls the sheriff MORTON when she called him MORT on the show? I LOVE MURDER, SHE WROTE, but I also like things to be accurate and consistent. It bothers me when an author claims to know the character, but forgets key historical factors.

5.0 out of 5 stars An uncozy travel April 10 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jessica has done it, yet, again. As she travels to England to visit her friend and world's most famous mystery writer, Marjorie Ainsworth, the real mystery begins. As usual, Jessica stumbles upon a body, this time it being her friend, Marjorie. The plot of the story thickens when Jessica puts her own life on the line to find the culprit who murdered Marjorie in her own bedroom. I enjoyed this book so much I couldn't put it down. Every page is a page-turner, and Donald Bain has captured an atmosphere engrossed with suspense and thrills. I'm comparing "Gin and Daggers" to other great Murder She Wrote mysteries such as "Knock 'em Dead" and "Rum and Razors." One word for Bain: Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Jessica Fletcher book May 25 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love these books - have read them all. They are fun to read between more serious books. I always watched Murder She Wrote on TV and am happy when a special pops up periodically. I enjoy all the characters and places in the books which were also in the TV series - Seth Hazlitt, Mort Metzger, Cabot Cove, Mara's Luncheonette, etc. I have to agree with the person who reviewed this book before my review, I was confused about the apparent first meeting with Inspector Sutherland when Jessica had visited him before and they always seem to have fond feelings for each other. What happened? Other than that, it was as good as all the others. Looking forward to the next one "Trick or Treachery."

3.0 out of 5 stars Pay Attention to details April 12 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of the books in this series and enjoy them as light reading. The character of Jessica is true to the way she has been portrayed on TV, but it would have been good if Donald Bain had watched some of the TV series. He has Jessica, who does not drive, renting a car in England and her greatest difficulty is dealing with the "wrong side of the road". In order for an American to rent a car in England one needs three documents, a passport (which Jessica would have), a home state driver's license (which she didn't) and an International Driver's License, which one has to obtain before leaving the US. This glaring error of fact did detract from an otherwise well crafted mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish it would have said it was a reiusse Nov. 5 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read all the Murder She Wrote books, I was quite confused with this one as I was reading it. I felt that I had read it before, but was confused because it stated she had just met Inspector Sutherland. I knew that she had met him before thru previous novels. Also, the title was one that had been used in previuos series. Now I found out that it is a reissue. The book should have stated this. The credit page did state that April 2000 was the first Signet printing but should have stated it was a reissue. This is what has bothered me. Still, love the entire series, each book is just as good as the one before. Own them all. Can't wait until the next ones come out.
