Jessica takes a trip to Manhattan to promote her newest book. While strolling down the street she runs into a Santa Claus. However, she knows this man. He’s from Cabot Cove. This Santa happens to be one of the town’s most infamous citizens, Waldo Morse. He use to be a drug smuggler. Santa recognizes Jessica and requests to meet with her. She reluctantly agrees.
She arrives at the meeting with a camera, but instead of a meeting she becomes a witness to Santa’s (Waldo’s) murder. She does manage to snap a few photos. Waldo’s wife goes on the run shortly after the murder. As the police work the case they seem to be spinning their wheels.
Our mystery writer, Jessica, decides it’s her turn to have a go at the case. Who killed Waldo and why? Why is his wife running? Is her life in danger too? Will Jessica get too close and become the murder’s next victim?
