Episode no. 2: "Deadly Lady"
"Highlights: [...] By this segment,
Jessica is not only a prominent mystery writer, but also has a
growing reputation for solving real-life crimes. As such, Amos
Tupper, Cabot Cove's not-so-swift law enforcer, welcomes the chance
to utilize Jessica's detecting skills. A born diplomat, she leads
slow-thinking Amos in the right direction, but allows him to believe
he is controlling the investigation".
