  • Episode Description
  • After their car breaks down after dinner with the governor, Jessica and her friend Ames Caufield find themselves in a small southern town just in time for local bad boy Ed Bonner to be found dead, and young Matt Burns, the son of a former student of Ames', ends up accused of the murder. At the behest of Linda Bonner, the victim's sister who happens to care deeply about the accused, Jessica takes a look into the murder, but hatred runs deep in this town and it's pure luck (and Andy Crane) that leads Jessica and Ames to the right answer.moreless

    • Ed Bonner: Mr. Burns, about my sister. She may be a tramp, but she deserves a lot better than you.

    Trivia (1)

    • Nitpick: In this episode, Jessica solves the murder with the help of two obscure-but-vital clues that she knows simply from doing research for a book. One clue involves recognizing a Scottish family crest, and the other is being familiar with a little known handgun and its ammunition. That she would have just happened across both of these obscure details needed to solve this murder in her recent research seems rather far-fetched.
