Grady Fletcher is in big trouble again, when his boss at an accounting firm is found dead and he is the main suspect.
Guest star Ron Masak will later appear in the recurring role of new Cabot Cove sheriff Mort Metzger
This is the first time where Jessica doesn't have the police or any backup waiting nearby when the killer confesses, (likely due to not having set it up ahead of time since the killer suspected she'd already figured them out) and would've have been killed had it not been for the Phantom.
Victim: Ralph Whitman
Killer: Paul Carlisle
Cause of death: Strangulation.
Motive: Ralph was blackmailing him over a dummy account he'd set up to swindle people.
