While on a cruise, Jessica helps an old friend, now a ship's security chief, investigate when a woman is found dead in the cargo area.

Victim: Janet Fisk

Killer: Leslie Hunter

Cause of Death: Thrown from a balcony

Motive: Feared Janet would expose her as the smuggler.

Leslie wasn't the one that killed Janet Fiske, she was shot before the ship had set sail, remember, the beginning of the episode Janet was shot first & that wasn't Merriweather that did it, now was it, plus, the fact that the only person that saw the lighter was Alma Sobel who purloined the lighter, so I can't see how Leslie would have seen Janet with the Captain, given the shooting took place before the ship had set sail. Think about it, not once did they play up the story as to how Janet knew that Leslie was the one who was the smuggler, now did they ? If Janet had known that Leslie was the smuggler, then why the story for Jessica, the arresting officer, the Captain to be the only ones to know of it ?
