Jessica Fletcher takes up the cause of her good friend Barbara Babs Wirth after Babs's husband Hal suffers a fatal heart attack that Jessica has reason to believe was actually murder. Her suspicions are aroused by a sinister dating site Hal used while he and Babs were having marital issues - a site that might be complicit in somehow swindling him out of millions. Jessica's investigation reveals that Hal was far from the only victim, and when his former business partner is also killed, a deadly pattern emerges.

i havent even finished listening but the storyline seems fine. No complaints about that.However who really reads murder she wrote for the mystery.Its all about Jessica Fletcher!And they have mischaracterized her in this book.My goodness her comment about Seth being disrespectful, she would never say!The way she quips back and forth with people...No.The way she mentioned her royalties and the obvious annoyance she had with people that considered mystery a low form of entertainment.she would NEVER speak that way even if that's what she thought.Now I have listened to all the other books and they seem on point. GO BACK to that formula. thank you.

They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

the narrator was fine. however what he was reading was not. My goodness it started out promising then 1/3 of the way through became a completely cheesy convoluted story that turned into kiddie porn.
