Did You Know?


When JB Fletcher first called Maude Winslow, she mentioned that she hoped she wasn't interrupting her dinner, since Chicago was two hours behind. JB Fletcher was in Boston at the time (Eastern time), which is only an hour ahead of Chicago (Central time). To be two hours ahead of Chicago, JB Fletcher would have to be 1000 miles into the Atlantic Ocean. See more »

Strange Encounter
11 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have to confess, the kind of encounter that Jessica Fletcher has on a Boston street with someone she knows well, but who pretends he doesn't know her would make me want some answers. What's more strange is that John Furlong is someone she knows from Chicago.

She hires her old friend Harry McGraw as always played by Jerry Orbach to check out the man of her encounter in Boston while she goes to Chicago to confront the wife Christine Belford who says her husband had passed away.

Orbach is operating under a cloud himself, his license as a PI has been yanked due to the enmity of Boston PD detective William Lucking. When Furlong turns up really dead with Orbach at the scene Lucking wants to hang it on McGraw.

There is an explanation for all the shenanigans, but I can't help thinking that Furlong had he confided in Angela Lansbury he would not have been killed. She might have brought him to Cabot Cove for safe keeping.

Always love the stories with Harry McGraw,
