When Jessica gets several distressing letters from a friend begging for help, and then that friend is later murdered at the tropical island resort she is staying at, Jessica decides to get to the bottom of things. So Jessica flies off to the luxurious island getaway undercover as a wealthy recluse and meets all of the people who had connections with her late friend. While everyone else on the island believes her friend's murder was simply a burglary gone wrong, Jessica believes it's something far more complicated.
