Sheriff Metzger and Jessica must interrupt preparations for a dinner party 'not' for doc's birthday to figure out recent crimes in Cabot Cove. Walter Perry broke into taking the pittance he was owed by metals entrepreneur Sanford Lomax from his office, but stumbles upon and grabs $900,000. It's actually owed to mobster Joseph Kempinsky, who sends goon Oscar James Gandile to retrieve it. Lomax hopes to have it returned by hiring PI Charlie Garrett, an old friend of Jessica's. However it's Oscar who gets killed, and the fortune is missing. Written by
