MURDER, SHE WROTE:
MANUSCRIPT FOR MURDER
BY JESSICA FLETCHER AND JON LAND
Jessica Fletcher investigates a mysterious manuscript with deadly
consequences in the latest entry in this USA Today bestselling series...
Jessica Fletcher has had plenty to worry about over her storied career, both as a
bestselling novelist and amateur sleuth. But she never had any reason to worry about
her longtime publisher, Lane Barfield, who also happens to be a trusted friend. When
mounting evidence of financial malfeasance leads to an FBI investigation of Lane,
Jessica can't believe what she's reading.
So when Barfield turns up dead, Jessica takes on the task of proving Barfield's
innocence--she can't fathom someone she's known and trusted for so long cheating
her. Sure enough, Jessica's lone wolf investigation turns up several oddities and
inconsistencies in Barfield's murder. Jessica knows something is being covered up,
but what exactly? The trail she takes to answer that question reveals something far
more nefarious afoot, involving shadowy characters from the heights of power in
Washington. At the heart of Jessica's investigation lies a manuscript Barfield had
intended to bring out after all other publishers had turned it down. The problem is
that manuscript has disappeared, all traces of its submission and very existence
having been wiped off the books.
With her own life now in jeopardy, Jessica refuses to back off and sets her sights
on learning the contents of that manuscript and what about it may have led to
several murders. Every step she takes brings her closer to the truth of what lies in
the pages, as well as the person who penned them.
