Jessica's in Washington, D.C., to support a senator's new literacy initiative. The week-long literacy event includes a visit to the White House to meet the president and a lavish party or two.
But during one affair at the senator's home in Virginia, Jessica discovers the dark side of politics. At the foot of a rickety staircase, she finds the body of the senator's chief of staff - and he has taken a permanent recess. Her search for culprits leads her from the shady halls of the Library of Congress to the D.C. social scene, and even the FBI.

Not bad. I was hoping for more complexity in the outcome, or at least more thorough of a wrap up . The descriptions of Washington DC landmarks were interesting and evocative.
Yes, Especially if they are a Murder She Wrote TV show fan.
It took a while but eventually I could see Angela Lansbury as the reader read on. It made the book more an extention of the TV series. Which for me was a good thing. I am a total fan of the TV series so books about one of my favorite characters was a serious find for me. I hope the books to come are equally entertaining.
I was and I did and started book two.
I was a fan of the TV series "Murder She Wrote". The Jessica Fletcher character appeals to me. She is smart, sophisticated, down to earth, and classy. Angela Landsbury seemed perfectly cast for the part.
The TV series ended years ago, Happily for me, Jessica's adventures continue in books. I enjoy reading about the interesting places she visits and the interesting people she meets.
This book is a well plotted, briskly paced story. If you liked the TV series and/or other Murder She Wrote books, I believe you will enjoy this one too.
Fascinating from the moment it starts, this Murder She Wrote Jessica Fletcher mystery has all the nuances, details and emotion that come with reading the book rather than watching the show!
Jessica has a romantic possibility in this story that I haven't seen in any other show or book about her.
She sounds definitively like she comes from Maine; however, she does not try to speak like Angela Lansbury but reads this book in her own engaging and charismatic style.
I love the moments between Jessica and her romantic interest.
