Jessica is in Monte Carlo visiting her good friend, hotelier Annie Floret. They haven't seen each other for 10 years and Jessica quickly realizes that her friend is under a great deal of pressure. She learns from police Inspector Morel that Annie owes a great deal of money to businessman Earl Harper and will lose everything if she doesn't come up with the payment within a few days. When Harper is found in his suite stabbed in the chest with a pair of scissors and a very expensive piece of jewelry goes missing, the police arrest Peter Templeton, a one-time jewel thief who worked in the hotel. Annie, however, fears that her son Richie, who had earlier threatened Harper, is behind the killing. A second murder points Jessica in the right direction. Written by garykmcd

The mortgage held by a lizard
12 July 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Murder She Wrote story might be the first one I've ever seen set in Monte Carlo where the center of the plot wasn't gambling. Jessica Fletcher has come to the Riviera to visit another old classmate Dina Merrill who is a widow trying to keep control of the hotel she owns. The mortgage is held by a real lizard of a human being in David Birney. So you know right away that Birney is slated to be the victim in this story.

There are two victims however Birney and a waiter at the hotel Victor Touzie who doubled as a spy for hire. It's what Touzie did as an avocation that sends Angela Lansbury on the track of the real killer who the Monte Carlo cops think is Neill Barry, Merrill's son.

Nicely done story with Birney a real standout.
