"Murder, She Wrote"
(Close-up on Murder is #40 in the series)
Hi! Cabot Cove Sheriff Mort Metzger here. If you were a fan of the television series, “Murder, She Wrote,” in which yours truly actually solves the murders in our small town, admittedly with occasional assistance from my friend, the mystery writer Jessica Fletcher, you might want to take a look at her long-running book series. Donald Bain and Mrs. F. have been writing about her adventures since 1989. If my math is correct, that means that this coming new year, 2014, will mark the 25th anniversary of “Murder, She Wrote” in print. Not bad for a former schoolteacher, which my pal, Mrs. F. was years ago.
