Andrew Durbin returns to Cabot Cove, on parole after serving 20 for a murder he says he did not commit. As a college student 20 years before, he had been hitchhiking on the outskirts of the town when he got a lift from someone driving an expensive two-seater sports car. They were forced off the road by an erratic driver coming in the opposite direction and the driver of the sports car was seriously injured. Durbin went off to find help and when he returned, he found the driver dead and later learns there is $100,000 in bearer bonds missing. He's now returned seeking to find the killer and thief. As for Jessica, she finds herself in the unpleasant situation of having to investigate friends and neighbors. Written by
