Back for one more riddle (case) to solve.
26 September 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

It is good to see Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) back in action in the fourth TV movie after the Murder, She Wrote TV series ended. This time, Jessica travels to Ireland to attend the reading of an old acquaintance's will, which contains clues to a secret treasure. The hunt for the treasure leads the strained family to search for it, and Jessica to solve a murder mystery.

This movie possesses the same charm, sleuth tactics and plot twists and turns of the TV series, and is filled with some intriguing and unique plot elements, particular the Ireland setting. The classic treasure-hunt aspect also gives the movie a unique flavor and it adds onto the suspense in the good-paced plot. Lansbury does her role well as always, as does the rest of the actors, who pulled off their roles quite nicely.

With all the finger-pointing and unpredictability elements in the movie, you would be eager to find the answer to the "whodunit" question and would be captivated by this overall TV movie, which is another nice throwback to the heyday of the TV series.

Grade B+
