The owner of a new, hot fitness club in Cabot Cove has secrets that lead to murder.
One of the few mysteries set in Cabot Cove without Dr. Seth Hazlitt, because William Windom was starring in the short-lived series Parenthood (1990). Ben Devlin took his place as a close male friend of Jessica.
As of 2011, this is the last screen appearance of actor James Olson.
Victim: Fred Keppard (was meant to be Wayne Bennett)
Killer: Clarence La Rue
Cause of death: Gunshot
Motive: Combination of drunkenness and anger over thinking his wife Nancy was having an affair with Wayne.
When Jessica, Nancy, and Ben Devlin are riding their bicycles, they pass a sign for Navarro something-or-other that's partially blocked by a tree. Navarro would be found in Mendocino, California, the filming location, not in Maine, the setting.
In the reveal by the killer, it shows the killer firing a gun directly at the camera on the ground level. In reality, the killer would have fired up as the victim was on an upper level.
