Jessica arrives by limousine to a luxury Caribbean hotel as spoiled, jewel-covered Marguerite Canfield (really a super-rich recluse) as she was requested to help in the last letter of her unhappily divorced society friend Antoinette Farnsworth, a French wine fortune heiress who was brutally murdered in the hotel, apparently by a burglar in black who struck again meanwhile. Chief Inspector Claude Rensselaer repeats his advice to stay away, in vain. Instead 'Marguerite' hits the jet set, starting at the casino, where hotel security man Sheldon Greenberg uses a purse snatcher to verify her true identity. She investigates hotel owner Eric Brahm and his secret lover, hostess and former film actress Myrna Montclair LeRoy, former Olympic skiing champion Sven Torvald and his flirt Iowa school teacher Veronica Harrold, who didn't really win a trip for one, the mysterious Britton Michael Hagarty, another false identity, and the next murder, on old Mrs. Alva Crane...

Jessica incognito
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two things about this Murder She Wrote episode set it a bit apart from the rest. Jessica Fletcher does not become accidentally involved as she usually does. She gets a disturbing letter from a friend who winds up being murdered. She goes down under an alias, a rich international playgirl.

But that's the other thing. A whole bunch of people in this cast aren't who they say there. Even Iowa schoolteacher Anne Lockhart doesn't know she's the lost heir to a fortune and some like Olympic skier John Philip Law are buzzing like bees to rich honey.

Later on wealthy widow Mary Wickes is killed. This might have been her first death on the big screen or small.

Once the motive is figured out the culprit could be only one person. See if you agree.
