Publisher's Summary

Jessica Fletcher must tread lightly when investigating a homegrown homicide....

Jessica has always been civic-minded, so when the director of the Cabot Cove Women's Shelter asks her to join the board of directors, she readily accepts, even though the shelter has been in the crosshairs of an unreasonable councilman who'd like to see it closed.

One night while Jessica is at the shelter, a woman walks in battered and bruised. Her husband is a respected businessman and regarded by all as a pillar of the community. Could this paragon of virtue have beaten his wife?

Despite Jessica's support and advice, the woman refuses to stay at the shelter, press charges, or even report the abuse. But a few days later, the entire town is shocked to hear that domestic abuse has turned to murder.

Investigating the crime, Jessica soon discovers that the woman's family has secrets and lies that go beyond domestic violence - and that the real killer may be hiding behind a wall of silence that could send the wrong person to prison....

Murder She Wrote

As a a fan of the Murder She Wrote tv series, I decided to give the book a chance. I wasn't disappointed. In my mind's eye, I could see Angela Lansbury and Jerry Orbach as they palyed the characters on tv. I could also picture the town and all the other familiar characters like Seth and Mort. This could have easily been an episode that I have already seen in one of the many reruns of the long running show. The only difference was that the story took place over a period of months instead of the days depicted on the show. Sandra Burr did a good job narrating the story. All in all it was a pleasant reading/listening experience.

This book had so much potential

Would you try another book from Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain and/or Sandra Burr?

yes, I love the series

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I think this story had so much more potential. The subject matter is a serious one, but I think the author could have expanded the story line or the characters more. It was bland.

Story just lacked the mystery and challenge of a good read.

Bain and Fletcher were just not up to par with this book. There wasn't much mystery at all. It felt more like a lecture. The subject matter was important but the subject matter wasn't woven into a good story. I also did not like the reader. The voices were bland and thus the characters were difficult to differentiate from. An okay read but certainly not my favorite.

A tough topic handled well

Domestic violence is a tough topic to cover well in a novel, but the author did a good job with it.

It was also nice to hear a different narrator with this book - my daughter and I had listened to a different Murder She Wrote with a different narrator amd had almost sworn off the series. But this narrator handles the different voices and accents well.

Murder She Wrote Domestic Malice

A very good, moving story. I just wish that in real life there would be this outcome of such a terrible situation. As with other Murder She Wrote books, I found the presentation excellent and it encourages me to want to read more of these books.
