Book Description

Oct. 4 2011 Murder She Wrote (Book 36)

While on vacation in Italy, Jessica joins a tour that takes her to where lesser-known Italian masterworks are displayed-and where a pair of young Italian gunmen steal a painting off a church wall, killing an off-duty policeman in the process.

Agreeing to help identify the crooks at a later date should they be caught, Jessica returns to Cabot Cove and puts the shocking experience behind her. But months later, both art and death land on her doorstep when the son of an old friend appears to beg her for help in solving his mother's murder-which may take Jessica all the way back to Italy...

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting twisted thriller Oct. 4 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Mystery writer Jessica Fletcher is vacationing in Italy where she has joined the Great Art, Humble Places tour. She and the group are inside the Church of San Bernardino of Siena in the town of L'Aquila when two friars enter. They steal a Bellini, but when a visitor former Italian cop Fandello pulls a gun out, one of the thieves kills him and aims at Jessica before fleeing. She saw his face vividly and reported so to the police investigating the homicide art theft.

Back home in Cabot Cove, Maine Jessica learns that Jonathan Simsbury, husband of her best friend Marlise from her New York days was murdered in their home in Chicago. Not long after that Jonathan's adult son from his first wife Wayne arrives. He asks Jessica for help because his stepmom always said she was levelheaded. Jessica agrees to accompany a troubled Wayne back home where Marlise is the prime suspect in her spouse's homicide. At the office of Marlise's attorney Mr. Corman, Wayne says his stepmom murdered his father. Stunned by the revelation, Jessica investigates the murder while the Italian police want her to return there to testify in the art theft homicide in the Abruzzi region.

The latest Murder She Wrote is an exciting twisted thriller that has Jessica for the most part still on tour (see The Queen's Jewels). The Chicago caper takes several unexpected spins while stealing of art is the third most profitable felony. Readers will appreciate the latest Fletcher amateur sleuth as the heroine learns it is hard to be in two places an ocean apart at the same time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear! Jan. 19 2013

Not up to past books in the series, writing more lackluster as though Bain has lost interest. And with a topic that could have made it a "standout."

2.0 out of 5 stars What happened? Oct. 26 2011
By Bk Lover - Published on
I love the Murder She Wrote books, but this one was too convoluted and drawn out. I stopped reading about 2/3 of the way, wasn't interested in the characters or who committed the murder. Would not suggest this one.

Murder She Wrote is classic, if you liked the TV show and like to read get this series. They aren't bloody, gruesome or grapic they are just good mysteries

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down! Oct. 15 2011
By Laura M. Rowell - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was one of the better "Murder, she wrote" books. It doesn't really take place in Cabot's Cove, and all of the usual players are missing, but it still managed to keep me up well into the night as I simply couldn't put this book down! The author managed to add a lot of realism to the story - the details were rich, but didn't drag on and on.
I won't spoil the story by giving away the details, but this story was extremely well written, and the ending made me slap my head (Homer Simpson style) and go "Duh!" If you're a fan of this series you will not be disappointed by this book.
I hope the next book in this series is as good as this one!
