Jessica complains to Pullitzerprize-winner Bennett J. Devlin, who became editor in Cabot Cove, about elaborately reporting on her bicycle accident. Devlin's assistant, Jeff Ogden, has a crush on fellow English writing class student Melissa Maddox, who types for injured Jessica. Melissa calls her older husband Ralph Maddox, a tough businessman, who caused Hank Crenshaw to go bankrupt and now forecloses on his home, an inconsiderate jerk. One evening Melissa phones Jeff, claiming she found Ralph stabbed to death with scissors, and persuades him to stage a robbery in his firm, where Hank finds the body. Jessica helps sheriff Mort Metzger work it all out. Written by
