Operating under the charming fiction that she is a real mystery writer and co-author of this book, Jessica Fletcher travels from Cabot Cove, Maine, to Washington, D.C., and is, of course, immediately embroiled in a murder. The victim is a high-level senatorial aide. Fletcher stumbles upon the body with a Scotland Yard inspector (her pal) at a dinner party and then sets herself to ferreting out the clues. Cynthia Darlow sounds just like Angela Lansbury, but that's not all there is to the success of this series. She performs the other players with distinct characterizations, even the male ones, and the narrative flows with no apparent effort. The whole package is handled with professional skill. D.R.W.
