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.

This is first book of the murder she wrote series by this author... not bad but there is room for improvement .... for ex. He went on and on about Jessica turning in her old phone for a smart phone.... the character of Jessica Fletcher would adapt quickly to a smart phone.
Also the narrator of this story did not have Jessica’s character down she needs to read some of the previous books and work on her character development. She did have the character of Harry Mc Graw down... so overall not bad just not the top notch as previous books....

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The lecture was titled "The Middle East" There was no discussion on the middle east. Not what I was looking for at all.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

This book brings to life a real and urgent threat to America's security. America was asleep when Pearl Harbor was hit and America is asleep again. This time it will be the entire US that receives the blow. Send this book to your congressman today.
