Murder, She Wrote: Powder Keg

While on their way home from a literary conference, Jessica and her friend Ames Caulfield have to stay at an inn in a small town when their car breaks down. Upon checking in, Ames is in for a surprise when he discovers that the innkeeper, Cassie Burns, was a former student of his and that her son Matthew is playing in a band at a nearby bar. After getting embarrassed by the brother of a waitress he is interested in, Matthew becomes the prime suspect in the brother’s murder when he is found stabbed to death. Before the town’s residents take matters into their own hands, Jessica has to work with the local sheriff to prove that Matthew is innocent. Through the course of their investigation, Jessica uncovers a shocking secret involving Ames and Cassie and their past together.
