Tired of hotels, Jessica takes a Manhattan apartment bow she has accepted a New York teaching position. By the time Seth visits there, he can say 'I told you so' as he did at her Cabot Cove send-off party, although she'll spend weekends there. Her apartment's previous owner Mike Freelander has been murdered, her now home ransacked, so he moves in as temporary guardian angels and questions the neighbors. She doesn't leave snooping to the NYPD detectives but investigates Freelander's family life and their involvement in theft and contraband smuggling. After another murder, she comes up with surprising suspects and a risky trap.
