Cynthia Darlow's crisp articulation and mix of regional accents make her a perfect fit to portray bestselling mystery writer Jessica Fletcher. Fletcher's knack for finding mysteries wherever she goes continues when she accompanies her publisher to Mexico for rest and relaxation. Her plans include staying with old friends Vaughan and Olga Buckley. When Vaughan is kidnapped and a large ransom demanded, Jessica partners with an old priest who whispers he can help find her friend. Darlow captures a variety of characters and accents with stylistic ease. Her portrayals of police jargon, and male and female genders are equally credible. For Fletcher fans, this won't disappoint.
