I'm shocked to hear there's gambling in Cabot Cove
14 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

In this Murder She Wrote story we have Jessica Fletcher going back to Cabot Cove to get her accounts in order. It seems that Wings Houser who was the family accountant has really been messing up. Dr. Hazlitt's accounts as well.

At the same time Sheriff Metzger who is trying to bust a gambling operation he knows is being carried on at a refurbished upscale joint now owned by Richard Beymer. Ron Masak is the target of a hit that is a near miss.

A meeting in the restaurant portion of Beymer's place with William Windom, Angela Lansbury, Wings Hauser, Ron Masak and Richard Beymer kind of sets the whole plot in motion.

I was a bit disappointed here, seems that folks were bending way over backwards too much to be easy on Hauser.
