Storyline

Higgins is headed to the estate with several guests when a truck attempts to run their car over a cliff. One of the guests, Pamela Bates, is so frightened by the incident she decides to hire a private investigator. Bates snubs Magnum in favor of bringing in another investigator. When Amy Sayler, another of the guests, leaves the estate despite her fear over the previous day's incident, Magnum's curiosity is piqued. Magnum follows her to a business; there Sayler is startled by a mysterious man and flees the scene. Magnum manages to track Sayler down, but not without dodging bullets from Sayler's pursuer. Back at the estate Bates' private investigator has finally arrived. To Magnum's disbelief it is none other than mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher. Despite Magnum's skepticism regarding the ability of a novelist to help solve a real-life case, it's clear time is running out when an intruder takes a shot at an estate lunch.
