Everyone with a television recognizes the name Jessica Fletcher--that indomitable mystery writer from Cabot Cove, Maine. Now the character from "Murder, She Wrote" comes to life in an audiobook written by prolific and popular mystery writer Donald Bain and read by actress Cynthia Darlow. Jessica searches for a missing woman who becomes lost in Alaska while on a search for a tantalizing legacy. Darlow gives Jessica a pronounced Maine accent, which sometimes sounds as much "Down South" as Downeast. Still, she does a fine job delineating character, and her pacing is superb. You may guess who the villain is, but you'll still enjoy all the sleuthing on board ship and in the towns of Alaska. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
