In the latest entry in this USA Today bestselling series, Jessica loses a loved one to unnatural causes and sets her sights on the mysterious local hospital before more people wind up dead on arrival...
Jessica Fletcher's favorite gin rummy partner, Mimi Van Dorn, checks into the brand-new Clifton Care Partners, a private hospital that's just opened up shop in town, for a simple procedure—one that leads tragically, and inexplicably, to her death. Seeking justice in her inimitable fashion, Jessica decides to pursue her own investigation on the hospital and its shadowy business dealings.
On the trail of what initially appears to be medical malpractice, Jessica digs deeper and learns her friend was actually a victim of something far more sinister. Death is bad for business, but murder is even worse, and Jessica will find plenty of both as she races to bring down Clifton Care Partners before someone else flatlines...
When Mimi Van Dorn, a well-liked resident of Cabot Cove, Maine, collapses and dies without regaining consciousness in Land's strong third contribution to the Murder, She Wrote franchise (after 2018's Manuscript for Murder), mystery author Jessica Fletcher, who was a good friend of Mimi's, notices some anomalies and is soon assisting Sheriff Mort Metzger in his investigation. She is suspicious of the Clifton Clinic, the new private hospital in town, where Mimi recently went for a simple procedure. Ads for the clinic tout its "cutting-edge treatments" and "regenerative medicine," but the hospital's director, Charles Clifton, refuses to answer her questions. When Jessica's former beau, Scotland Yard inspector George Sutherland, checks into the same facility, she's determined to ensure that he doesn't also meet an early death. In her search for answers, Jessica plunges into the intricacies of clinical trials and eventually goes on a fact-finding excursion to Washington, D.C. The complex plot builds to a clever, if foreseeable, resolution. Land does a seamless job of maintaining the quality of this popular, long-running series.

Love this series!
Jessica Fletcher is by far my favorite tv show as well as books. I’m working on collecting them all! I highly recommend these books.
Murder in Red
Jessica is so much better solving mysteries and murders in her home town of Cabot Cove than in the last try in Washington , DC.
Her new collaboration is improving....simply put loved it. Hope more of the same comes from them in and around Cabot Cove, Maine and maybe London with her George Sutherland in the mix.
