Murder, She Wrote: Death Stalks the Big Top (1)

Upon her arrival in Washington DC for her niece’s wedding, Jessica learns that one of the presents that Carol recently received was a trinket that her grandfather Neil promised her years before. Wondering how he could have sent the present to her since he passed away five years ago in a boating accident, Jessica promises to look into who could have sent Carol the package from Arkansas. Upon her arrival in Arkansas, Jessica finds her way to a traveling circus where she discovers a roustabout named Carl is actually Neil. Things get a little sticky when an unpopular circus worker is murdered and all the evidence points to Neil being the prime suspect.
