Storyline

Moments after leaving a hotel where she gave a speech to a booksellers convention, Jessica Fletcher witnesses a car accident. The driver has suffered a heart attack and asks Jessica to find him a priest. He also in his dying breath tells her that he had just killed a man by the name of Carl Cosgrove. She reports what he said to the police but Sgt. Cooper doubts her story, especially after checking and learning that Cosgrove is alive and well living in his gated property. When Cosgrove's body is found however, it looks like Jessica may have been right. The only thing is that Coscrove isn't Cosgrove and Jessica finds herself in the middle of a government security operation. Written by garykmcd

This one was unusual
10 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There were so many characters playing secret service cops and they want to keep a killing a secret.

This takes place in Connecticut and a man's body is found in the river, he is shot.

JB Fletcher tries to get to the bottom of this because the killer died in a car crash in front of her and said he wanted a priest so he could confess that he just killed a man.

Valerie Harper plays in this as an agent. She is very beautiful and still such a good actress. She is in what they call a "safe house" where people from other countries are brought in to the US to testify and have no fear of being murdered.

Well murder does take place.
