Murder, She Wrote: Murder in Red May 28, 2019 Murder She Wrote: Murder in Red is written by Jon Land and is book number 49 in the Murder She Wrote series. Here we find the inimitable Jessica Fletcher becoming embroiled in mysteries and murders, conspiracies and fraud as the story grasps the reader and hauls them into its pages from the outset. When Jessica’s close friend dies unexpectedly, alarm bells start ringing in Jessica’s mind and she sets out on a mission to find answers to what turns out to be a mystery that continues to astound her (and the reader) until the very end. Unknown relatives, masquerading professionals, illegal activities and callous intentions of the very people who should be trusted are molded into a rip-roaring sleuth investigation that will have the reader on the edge of their seat and wanting more. Jessica is determined and relentless in her search for the truth, even to the point of putting her own life on the line. She calls on her loyal and steadfast friends in Cabot Cove, lawmen, doctors and retired professionals to help her in her quest, and when a good friend from England is at risk Jessica will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery and bring the perpetrators to account for their actions. Add to this the hint of medical malpractice, strange disappearances, and betrayal of trust, and you have a memorable story that has the reader guessing to the very end. In Murder in Red there are so many twists and turns in this story the reader is almost breathless and left wondering what will be uncovered on the next page, and it has to be said many of the twists are unforeseen, making this a really enjoyable and exciting read. The characters are so believable one could expect to travel to Cabot Cove and meet them in person. The writing is excellent, giving the reader a visual view of the settings and really bringing the story to life. The author, Jon Land, has a true gift of not only conceiving a clever storyline and building strong characters but finding the perfect ‘voice’ of Jessica who tells her story in the first person and shares her thoughts and feelings with the reader throughout. Add to all this a little hint of a sense of humor and Murder in Red is just perfect. You won’t be able to stop reading and prepare to be surprised at the very end. Definitely not to be missed. Chick Lit Café once again highly recommends exemplary author Jon Land, and his newest installment in the Murder She Wrote series, Murder in Red. A must read, 5 star mystery that readers will love and revel in. Reviewed by Jane Finch for Chick Lit Café
