Jessica reluctantly agrees to help her former researcher on a murder charge despite the fact that the woman is a pathological liar. (from http://jesmaine.tripod.com/mswseason9.html)
Jessica is still in Cabot Cove. Her assistant, Dana, heads back down south to Portland, Maine after helping research a book. Dana is applying for a job at a securities company. She's totally blagging it.
OMG! It's Hodges from CSI. He play this guy Todd at the securities company.
Dana totally messed up on the research on Jessica's book and she has to re-do all of it.
Then Dana pretends to be Jessica and gives herself a glowing reference to Ethan Stevens, the boss at the securities company. So she gets the job.
Mr. Stevens has been doing insider trading and fraud. He gets threatened by his partner. 48 hour...48 hours.
Jessica's at dinner with a publisher. Mr. Stevens, thinking he had talked to her earlier that day, comes up and says hi. Jessica is flummoxed by the conversation.
Jessica comes to the brokerage to confront Dana. She's still lying about pretty much everything. She's shocked when Jessica tells Dana that's she knows Dana a 'big fat liar'. (my words not Jessica's)
Mrs. Stevens confronts Dana and basically threatens her...'He is my major clown.'
Later on that night...Mr. Stevens is shot after saying...'Dana, what are you doing?'
Even though Dana's a 'big fat liar', she's no murderer. But she's arrested for his murder. Her prints, hair and blood were on the gun and she had GSR on her hands.
Dana's public defender, Vincent Polaski. asks Jessica to investigate the case for her because his P.I. is in rehab. He guilts her out and she ends up doing it...as long as 'she can go for 5 minutes without lying.'
Her blood was on Mr. Stevens desk because she claims to have lost an earring in his office.
The prosecutor, Bruce Hastings, looks like a cross between Gordon Gekko and Pat Riley.
Jessica and Polaski think that Dana had inside help getting a job at the brokerage because she knew too much about it. So they go Polaski's grandma, Wanda, who's a computer hacker.
Of course the inside guy is Hodges...I mean Todd. Dana and Todd went to the same high school in Vermont. Mrs. Stevens shows up with Baker Lawerence, Mr. Stevens, partner.
The police psychologist says Dana has 'borderline psychosis'...no duh.
Jessica wonders why Mrs. Stevens and Baker were in Ethan's office on the day of his funereal.
Polaski and Jessica go to check out Stevens office again. The security guard pops in and out. They hide under the desk. It's made of jasmine wood, which is 'unusually soft' there's no way she hit her head on the desk...someone had to have hit her over the head with something.
Holy Crap the prosecutor was Ethan Stevens partner in crime! And his killer!
Dana goes into therapy for her lying.

The murderers of a fisherman and a banker have nearly the same M.O., but are the crimes connected?
It was a dark and stormy night in Cabot Cove...The Sheriff, Mort, shows up at the cove and helps fisherman Henry carry something onto his boat, but he is clueless as to what it is, he's just being nice. And then one of the Warriors, Michael Beck, turns up and threatens the other fisherman Al.
Oh yeah...the plot...I was too busy uploading the picture of Michael Beck...money and armaments and smuggling.
Henry the fisherman calls the Sheriff and says he has something important to tell him. He does this after giving his daughter $1,000 from poker games...she doesn't believe him.
There's a traffic jam in Cabot Cove because of an over-sized truck from the evil company that MichaelBeck works for. It's owned by Chad Everett, he used to be famous too. He has a mustache in this.
Al has some guy tell him that he can't be 'shipping' the merchandise he has. He calls someone and threatens them.
Eve the local real estate agent is 'in love' with Chad Everett's character, Martin Fraser, and is helping out networking etc for the 'underwater imaging' thing.
A second body is found on the docks with almost the same wounds as Henry, it's Carl Ward!
Michael Beck's character, Brian Bentall, doesn't seem to be a bad guy, he's super smart.
Henry's daughter gets a package from him that he sent before he was killed. It's his log book and a bunch of other evidence.
Jessica goes to see the Sheriff about something...I've kind of lost track of the comings and goings of the so called plot.
Jessica sees some ropes in some guys truck and of course knows where she's seen it before. They are Mr. Fraser's boat.
AN INTERNATIONAL ARMS DEALER IS IN CABOT COVE!?!
Mr. Fraser has an alibi, he was with Eve...until breakfast both nights. Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink.
Seth the doctor says 'Gossip gets round this town faster than a phone call.' Which triggers Jessica into solving the murders.
They go to see Mr Bentall to drop some hints...oh no! He did it! But Why?
He goes to the docks to get something and they confront him.
A very old cell phone was used in the murder...seriously, it's a brick.
Poor Eve...Mr Fraser is going to jail. But don't feel bad for her, a handsome gentleman needs her to find him a home in Cabot Cove.
